Biography

Westerville, Columbus OH, United States (2005 – 2013)

Attack Attack! were an American band from Westerville, Ohio, formed in 2005. Attack Attack!’s first release, an independent EP titled If Guns Are Outlawed, Can We Use Swords?, was released in 2008, which led to the signing of the band to Rise Records the same year. They then released their two full-length albums, Someday Came Suddenly and a self-titled album (Attack Attack!) both through Rise. A third album entitled This Means War was released on January 17, 2012, also through Rise. The band is currently unsigned.

Attack Attack! was founded during 2005 by members Austin Carlile, Ricky Lortz, Andrew Whiting, Nick White, and Andrew Wetzel. Several months later, Ricky Lortz announced his departure and was soon replaced by Johnny Franck as the new vocalist/rhythm guitarist at the time. Later, Nick White also announced his departure from the group and John Holgado was added on bass and in 2008, Caleb Shomo joined the band on keyboard. In early 2008, they self-released their debut EP titled If Guns Are Outlawed, Can We Use Swords?. Later they signed to Rise Records in June 2008 and released their debut album, Someday Came Suddenly, on the label late that year. Upon the release of Someday Came Suddenly, it peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and number 193 on the Billboard 200, with sales of more than 3,600 in its first week despite its mediocre to overwhelmingly negative reviews.

    Someone recommended this to me, not sure how you go from black/death/thrash to this, but ok. I had a good laugh with this video either way. Crabcore, what is that even? lol

    How the fuck is Attack Attack post hardcore? Do you even know what post hardcore is? Someday Came Suddenly is a classic tho.

    I'm hoping they do a reunion tour someday. This Means War has grown on me in the years since its release.

    I think it'd be a better idea to have every parent show their kid how not to become a bitter internet metal nerd who relies on homophobia and encouraging suicide, but that's just me.
