Former EXODUS Frontman ROB DUKES Drops New GENERATION KILL Song 'Into The Black'

GENERATION KILL, the band featuring former EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes, has released the official music video for a new song called “Into The Black”. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album, “MKUltra”, to be relased via Blood Blast Distribution.

Dukes commented: “The story ‘Eight O’Clock In The Morning’ by Ray Nelson inspired the lyrics, and I watched a doc on ‘They Live’ which took me down the rabbit hole of short stories and books so I took the idea and ran with it. The G KILL boys gave me a barn burner with a really cool ending to work with. Shooting the video was good fun. We had a blast hanging together and doing this. Hunter Chapman did a killer job and the bugs and heat didn’t deter us from having a blast.”

GENERATION KILL was formed by Dukes in New York City in 2008. Rob, on hiatus from touring with EXODUS, wanted to funnel his excess creative energy and aggression into something new. After the inclusion of Jason Trenczer, Lou Lehman and Sam Inzerra, the band began writing and recording its first album, “Red, White, & Blood”, featuring several singles, including “Feast For The Wolves” and “Hate” as well as a cover of the NINE INCH NAILS track “Wish” which enjoyed heavy radio rotation.

Due to creative differences with Inzerra and the untimely death of guitarist Lou Lehman, Jay Velez and Jim DeMaria (HEATHEN) joined and began recording GENERATION KILL‘s sophomore album, “We’re All Gonna Die”, with renowned producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, HATEBREED). Shortly after its release, the band embarked on a European tour with fellow EXODUS member Lee Altus‘s band HEATHEN. The album spawned several successful singles, including “Prophets Of War” which went to No. 1 on SiriusXM Liquid Metal‘s “Dirty Dozen” and remained one of the top requested songs on the channel.

Following the success of “We’re All Gonna Die”, drummer Rob Youells joined GENERATION KILL and they went into the studio, this time with ex-GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal to record an album with a founding member of RUN-D.M.C., Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels. The project was initially titled DMC GENERATION KILL before becoming its own entity, later renamed FRAGILE MORTALS.

Currently, GENERATION KILL is recording “MK-Ultra”, teaming up once again with Zeuss, Youells returning on the drums and with a new member, Max Velez, on bass.
