GENERATION KILL SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS

GENERATION KILL SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL - 2013-08-21

2013-08-21 - Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of New York City-based thrashers GENERATION KILL, headed by EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes.
Together with Rob Moschetti (ex-PRO-PAIN / M.O.D.) on bass & backing vocals, dual lead guitarists Jason Trenzcer (ex-MUTILATION) & Jason Velez, and James DeMaria (ex- MERAUDER) on drums, GENERATION KILL has completed work with producer Zeuss (HATEBREED, AGNOSTIC FRONT, MUNICIPAL WASTE) on their second studio album (and follow-up to 2011’s Red, White And Blood) to be released later this year.
Culling the band name from the title of the 2004 book (also an HBO mini-series) written by Rolling Stone journalist Evan Wright, GENERATION KILL vocalist Rob Dukes comments on the band’s time in the studio & the recent worldwide signing:
“We all reached down and made a good record. Zeuss really helped us bring out things in all of us we didn't know we had. We fought, we argued, and in the end, each of us rose up to the challenge and wrote good fucking songs. I want to thank everyone at Nuclear Blast for having GENERATION KILL become part of the greatest metal family.”

Producer Zeuss adds: "This album is not an EXODUS clone. This is an album of music where five guys got together and explored our own roots of music, the records we grew up listening to and [then] wrote songs paying homage to what we love."
Nuclear Blast A&R Manager Jaap Wagemaker weighs in on GENERATION KILL & their addition to the label roster:
“With the release of their debut, Red, White And Blood, we knew that something special was brewing in New York! The band is playing a different kind of thrash metal - not just straight in-your-face but also elements from hardcore and alternative are used, not only in the music, but also in the vocals. Rob is mostly known for his aggressive vocal style in EXODUS; you will be very surprised to hear a different side from him. Two months ago, we had the chance to see the band play as support for HEATHEN. We were blown away by the sheer live power of this outfit. All members have a lot of experience playing in New York and are longtime friends. They really know their music and it shows. We at Nuclear Blast are very impressed by the new tracks and are very pleased to welcome GENERATION KILL as new members to the Nuclear family. GENERATION KILL are here to destroy and leave no prisoners behind!”
