The Skinny: Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of New York City-based thrashers Generation Killheaded by Exodus frontman Rob Dukes. Together with Rob Moschetti (ex-Pro-Pain, M.O.D.) on bass and backing vocals, dual lead guitarists Jason Trenzcer (ex-Mutilation) and 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 and 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.”
