NEWS: Attack! Attack! announce they are to break up!

Welsh rockers Attack! Attack! have just announced that they are to break up following their upcoming tour dates in April, which the band have confirmed will be their last. The band recently posted on a statement regarding this decision on Facebook, which reads as follows:

“Hey everyone

It is with much regret that we have to inform you that Mike and Ryan are no longer in Attack! Attack!. We sat down with Ryan in early 2012 and he told us that it was becoming increasingly difficult for him to commit to the band. We hoped that this situation would change but unfortunately it hasn’t. Since recording the album Mike has decided that the time has come for him to move on too. Will and I totally respect their decisions and hope that they have great success in whatever they choose to do moving forward.

The 4 of us have shared some amazing moments together. We have toured the world, released albums, played shows with some of our favourite bands and met the most incredible people. All of these memories are priceless to us. To be honest we couldn’t imagine continuing the band without Mike and Ryan being in it, Attack! Attack! was meant to be the 4 of us together and if it can’t be that way then Will and I feel it is better for the band to finish. We have not made this decision lightly, we have spent months and months deliberating what to do. It has been one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make.

The tour we have booked will still be going ahead but unfortunately for personal reasons Mike and Ryan will not be able to play with us. We will be asking our friend Todd from Straight Lines and Paul from Colours Of One to play with us on the tour. This tour will of course now be our final ever tour as Attack! Attack!, so we really hope you can join us for a show and sing along with us for one last time. Let’s make it a send off to remember!

Sincerely , from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your support. Without you none of this would have been possible.

Neil , Will, Mike and Ryan”

ALBUM: Attack! Attack! – The Latest Fashion

Release Date: September 27th, 2010
Label: Hassle Records
Website: None available
MySpace: www.myspace.com/attackattackband

Rating:

There’s always a constant confusion between the two: Attack Attack! from America, and Attack! Attack! from Wales. Aside from one exclamation mark their names are indentical, and they’ve released both of their albums in the same year as each other. What is different though is their sounds; the Yankees going with a metal and synth fusion and the Welsh going with an alternative rock approach. The latter of the two had a good foundation going with their self-titled debut, but follow-up ‘The Latest Fashion’ is a great build up from what was already there into something more refined and stronger.
