Such a crying shame – Ohio rockers Attack Attack! have just announced via their Facebook page that they are to be no more. The surprising news comes just a day after their appearances at this year’s Hit The Deck Festival.
The statement from the band reads:
“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.
There are still a few last chances to see the band in the UK over the next few days. The details are as follows:
23 – O2 Academy 2, LIVERPOOL
24 – Barfly, LONDON
25 – Sound Circus, BOURNEMOUTH
26 – The Haunt, BRIGHTON
We wish the guys all the best of luck for their futures!
