Hailing from Welland, Ontario, Attack in Black, have quickly won over audiences and critics with their debut release Marriage, a collection of stunning folk-infused songs that merge the soul of old school rock ‘n’ roll with the body of modern day punk rock. Although Attack in Black’s sound may at first closely resemble popular forms of punk rock, it is not fitting to simply categorize the quartet as a “punk rock” band. Various artists and authors that many people would not relate with the genre have influenced the band: from Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, to Refused and Ramones, to Henry Miller and Charles Bukowski. These are the muses that have lead to the lyrics and sounds of Attack In Black. In Spring 2006, Attack in Black signed to Dine Alone Records (home to City and Colour, Bedouin Soundclash, The End, Walter Schreifels and Black Lungs). Although still cultivating a youthful musical career, the band has already graced the covers of Exclaim! Magazine, and various weeklies, shared the stages with City and Colour, Alexisonfire, Built To Spill, Moneen, Sparta, and Weakerthans, as well as performed at prominent UK festivals. Currently the most played Canadian artist on the Edge 102.1, the band is a feature performer at the 2007 CASBYs, and is honoured to be one of the few artists invited to perform on Borrowed Tunes II: A Tribute to Neil Young. Attack in Black will play live on MuchMusic’s highly rated MuchOnDemand where the video for “Young Leaves” is in heavy rotation.
