Reunited Metal Titans Nuclear Assault Preps Rampaging 2003 Tour To Support Screaming Ferret Wreckords Live Album Alive Again

Thrash Metal Masters Writing New Material!

The heralded and heavily anticipated return of the most gifted thrash metal giants thrusts into high gear in early 2003, when the original lineup of New York's Nuclear Assault initiates a world tour throughout the New Year 2003 to support the upcoming Alive Again live album for Screaming Ferret Wreckords. Confirmed dates will take the band through the US during the Winter (with openers Origin and All That Remains) and in Europe through the Spring on the No Mercy/Easter Festivals 2003 package tour with stalwarts Testament, Death Angel, Marduk and Pro-Pain.

The band's lineup, consisting of vocalist/guitarist John Connelly, bassist Danny Lilker, guitarist Anthony Bramante, and drummer Glenn Evans made their presence known throughout 2002 on select performances & festival dates around the world in an effort to 'test the waters' - if the world was ready for their unique, dexterous yet uncompromising metal. The result set the wheels in motion for the upcoming all-out assault! In August, Bramante bowed out due to the commitments of his job and was replaced by the more than capable Erik Burke. Lilker comments on the upcoming tour: "It's gonna be great to finally tour again! People seem totally psyched that they will get to see us in the flesh again. We hope to see all diehard metalheads banging and moshing in the front..."

Formed in 1984 by Danny Lilker (who has also been a founding member of Anthrax, S.O.D., Brutal Truth, among others), Nuclear Assault enjoyed a ten-year career that spawned 6 studio albums & EPs and a host of world tours. While emitting a dark sense of humor, the band's catalogue acknowledged the gamut of social concerns, from political tyranny and environmental devastation to capitalistic excess and basic human apathy. Their 1989 opus Handle With Care garnered much critical-acclaim, while its singles "Critical Mass" and "Trail Of Tears" received generous MTV airplay.

The forthcoming Alive Again live album represents Nuclear Assault's first release in over 9 years. Lilker explains: "We will soon be releasing our new live album, so people can see for themselves that we still have it! I know a lot of thrash bands seem to be reuniting and some people are wondering 'Can these guys in their late 30's still hack it?' The answer is undoubtedly yes!"

Not content to keep the reunion to a mere commemorative or nostalgic event, Nuclear Assault is also planning a new studio record for the near future! Danny Lilker offers a sneak preview of what can be expected: "We are in the process of writing new material, and I can tell you that it's definitely in the style of the old stuff. Once again speaking for myself, I think the metal scene NEEDS an injection of classic thrash metal 'cos I've had enough of people thinking Linkin Park is metal. We'll have to show these youngsters how metal is really played!"
