About The Attack:
” For devotees on either side… …the Attack make us realize that there’s more in common than divergent between traditional punk rock and hardcore.” – mxdwn.com
“…this quartet delivers the kind of vintage melodic hardcore that will take true punkers right back to the days of CBGB’s Sunday matinees…” – Pop Matters
“…Florida-based group that intentionally straddles the line between classic hardcore and old school melodic street punk.” – Metal Sucks
“…turn-of-the-century melodic punk/hardcore.” – Punknews
“If the Attack is nostalgic for anything, then, it’s not a sound, but an attitude that three chords, a six-pack and a fire in your belly is all you need to overthrow the system.” – The Orlando Weekly
…’some honest, true to the cause punk rock…” – Exclaim!
The Attack brings Punk back to basics; short, fast riffing songs about the social, music, and media driven politics of today. The simplicity of punk has been lost on a divided underground driven more by fashion and ruled by icons that have become the same rock stars the punk movement rebelled against in the seventies. Across the country everything Punk, from all ages shows to facebook pages, has become a popularity contest that defies the original intent of the alternative music scene.
The Attack is ruled by a DIY ethos and driven by a goal to re-unite the punks and skins and hardcore kids under the same underground flag. The Attack’s lyrics are true shot from all sides anthems. The Attack never panders to one political party or music scene forming an opinion, agenda and sound of its own.
