Attack Attack! Announce Breakup
American metalcore band Attack Attack! have called it quits. After six years as a band, Attack Attack! announced the discontinuation of the group via their Facebook page.
Attack Attack! mixed metalcore, post-hardcore and electronic since the band's formation in 2007. During their years together, the Ohio act released three studio albums: 'Someday Came Suddenly' in 2008, a self-titled record in 2010 and 'This Means War' in 2012. After many lineup changes in their relatively short existence, Attack Attack! announced that their 'Back in Action' tour dates would be their last.
Attack Attack! posted the following message on their Facebook page earlier today (April 22):
Well everyone, it's been a wild ride for Attack Attack, but I think it's about time Whiting and I take some time to write this note.
We want to start by thanking every single one of you that has ever come out to a show, bought a shirt, gotten in a fight over crabcore, or spent the time to send us notes online. We have been insanely blessed to be able to do what we have done with AA and we think it's time that we wrap up
this chapter in our lives.
Yes, this means exactly what you think it means. The Back in Action Tour will be Attack Attack's final and most ironic tour.
After 6 long years of playing in garages, VFW halls, clubs, open air festivals, and everything in-between. We've decided it is time to lay AA down for good.
You are all beautiful, wonderful people, and we want you to know that we deeply appreciate everything you have done for us.
We are sad to lay Attack Attack to rest, but are very excited for what is next in this new chapter of our lives.
Attack Attack!'s last show will take place on May 29 at Mr. Smalls Theatre in Millvale, Pa.
