One of New Jersey's favorite vocal powerhouses, Bobby "Leather Lungs" Lucas (Morbid Sin, Seven Witches, Overlorde), has joined forces with local legend "Attacker" Here's the official press release:
"ATTACKER ANNOUNCE BOBBY "LEATHERLUNGS" LUCAS AS NEW VOCALIST!
Attacker has 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 [new]
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 years 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!"
