Nuclear Assault’s Danny Lilker On Upcoming “Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly” Performance: “That Might Be Our Last U.S. Show”

It looks like Nuclear Assault may be getting ready to retire. During a recent interview with Decibel, bassist Danny Lilker revealed that the band’s upcoming performance at the “Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest” in Philadelphia, PA “might be [their] last U.S. show.”

Lilker said the following while discussing the group’s decision to perform “Game Over” in full at the aforementioned festival:

“It’s funny. There’s this thing now what they call ‘deep cuts’ and everything. Musicians laugh at that expression because that means ‘shit you never wanted to play live’ because you have an hour to play and you prioritize to play a few from this and a few from that. Now we’re going to be playing a few songs from that record that we’ve never played. Those are deep fucking cuts, right to the bone. [Laughs] We’ve never done anything like that. S.O.D. [STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH] has, or at least my little S.O.D. franchise band that plays in different territories around the world with different dudes. But, no, NUKE has never done that.”

He also added:

“We’re going to be pretty much wrapping it up. Nobody is getting any younger. People have commitments and families and stuff like that. I’ve been to a couple of the Metal & Beer Fests and I was usually pouring or just hanging out and drinking or something. So, I think it’s truly cool to be able to do this and I’m not kissing your ass here, at a nice, prestigious American metal festival. Also, I like beer. In all seriousness, it will be cool playing one of these. Like I said, I’ve been to a couple and when I go backstage and bullshit with people, I feel like, ‘Shouldn’t I be doing something?’ I think it should be a lot of fun and that might be our last U.S. show, actually.”
