New York thrash veterans Nuclear Assault look like they’ve called time on their 37-year career.

While no official reason has been given for the apparent split, their Facebook has vanished and their Instagram feed simply reads: “Nuclear Assault: John Connelly, Dan Lilker, Erik Burke, Drew Burke 1985-2022”.

A photo of a gravestone appeared on their Facebook page before it was taken down completely.

The band formed after bassist Dan Lilker left Anthrax in 1984 and hit their peak of popularity during the late 80s following a run of critically acclaimed albums, including Game Over (1986), Survive (1988) and Handle With Care (1989).
