GENERATION KILL Joins Forces With DARRYL ‘DMC’ MCDANIELS For FRAGILE MORTALS

Former EXODUS Frontman ROB DUKES Joins Forces With DARRYL 'DMC' MCDANIELS In FRAGILE MORTALS

Legendary hip hop icon Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and the metal band GENERATION KILL have decided to make their collaboration project a legitimate band rather than a one-album venture. In doing so, they have unveiled their new name: FRAGILE MORTALS.

FRAGILE MORTALS has completed work on a full-length record, tentatively due before the end of the year. A DMC solo album, to which which GENERATION KILL contributed to, will precede the FRAGILE MORTALS effort.

GENERATION KILL, which features former EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes, crossed paths with DMC on the road and gave him the latest GENERATION KILL CD, “We’re All Gonna Die”. Darryl contacted the band immediately after listening to the album, and asked if they would collaborate on a song, which very quickly turned into recording a full-length effort.

Dukes previously said about the collaboration with DMC: “It’s really cool, ’cause it’s different than anything I’ve ever done before. It’s challenging as fuck to not be a shit rap/metal band, to kind of bring those two together. ‘Cause I’m not really a metalhead; I’m more like a rock and roll kind of [guy].”

GENERATION KILL is currently writing its third album, due out in 2017.
