Projecting the subtle symphonic sweetness of a pounding jack hammer demolishing all previously established rock foundations, Nuclear Assault first exploded onto the New York City underground music scene in 1985.
Formed by Big Apple thrash metal go-to guy, bassist Dan Lilker, and guitarist/vocalist John Connelly, the band’s original lineup also briefly included guitarist Mike Bogush and drummer Scott Duboys. However, lead guitarist Anthony Bramante and drummer Glenn Evans soon were brought into the fold, and the “golden era” Nuclear Assault lineup was set in stone.
To commemorate its upcoming 30th anniversary, Nuclear Assault is set to reunite again and will release a new album in 2015. The current lineup, featuring Lilker, Connelly, Evans and Burke also will launch a “farewell” world tour that will keep the band on the road throughout 2015. In the words of Dan Lilker, "We’re going out with a bang!” – a sentiment echoed by Evans. Stand by for the “Final Assault!”
