New Jersey metallers ATTACKER have been joined by Bobby "Leatherlungs" Lucas (SEVEN WITCHES, OVERLORDE, MORBID SIN) as their new vocalist. Lucas is still currently in Overlorde, who are working towards a release of their own.
According to drummer Mike Sabatini, the band will focus on new material for their as-of-yet-untitled next album that they expect to release by year's end, adding: "We are extremely excited to have Bobby in the ranks bringing his talent to the table, we couldn't have asked for a better addition to the band, GAME ON! We've had a long but well needed break and are looking forward to playing shows again. We do what we do for the love of it and for the fans that do appreciate it and for no other reason than that. This stuff is in our blood!"
Bobby Lucas commented: "I am very happy and excited to be a part of the amazing ATTACKER! This is a band I have been a fan of since first hearing them on Metal Massacre 5 back in '86! I was hoping the right gig would eventually come along... I have been out of the original scene far too long, and here we are! It all seemed to fall into place. This band is right up my alley, classic TRUE POWER METAL! Hailz to all the Attacker fans. See you soon!"
Attacker has also been confirmed for the Metal Assault III festival, at Posthalle in Wurzburg, Germany. The festival will take place at the end of January 2013, the exact date is to be announced soon. Wurzburg just happens to be Bobby's place of birth, so this will be a very special show for him!
