Biography

ATTICA RAGE are one of the most promising heavy rock bands to emerge from the UK in recent years.  Formed in Glasgow, Scotland, they continue to build a growing loyal fanbase – ‘Clan Attica’ – via the traditional rock n’ roll route out on the road, earning a solid reputation for their bone-rattling, energetic, loud and powerful performances at headline shows, tours and festivals across UK & Europe.

Following an early EP in 2005, the band released their debut album ‘Ruin Nation’ in 2008 on their own label. In 2011, Attica Rage signed to Rocksector Records and released second album ‘Road Dog’ in the UK in April to critical acclaim across the board.  The album was then released worldwide by Off Yer Rocka Recordings in May 2012, with two additional bonus live tracks. Attica Rage also contributed a cover of ‘Killer of Giants’ on a US-released Ozzy Osbourne tribute album.

Having supported and shared festival bills with heavyweight names including Judas Priest, Slash, Black Label Society, Down, Anthrax, W.A.S.P and Saxon amongst others, the Attica Rage live experience has been proven to fill outdoor arenas as much as it does the clubs & theatres.  UK and European festival highlights have included High Voltage, Download and Bulldog Bash plus several main stage appearances at Hard Rock Hell, Hammerfest and overseas at Metalcamp (Slovenia); HRH Road Trip (Ibiza) and Wizzfest (Belgium).  In summer 2012, Attica Rage performed onboard the HMS Hammer boat at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards pre-show party along with Shadows Fall and Fozzy plus hundreds of fans, media & industry as it sailed along the River Thames in London, UK.

In December 2012, Attica Rage release third album ‘88MPH’ worldwide via Off Yer Rocka as well as a live concert & documentary film DVD, ‘Road Dog Forever’, with UK and European tours planned for 2013.
