Cambridge Rock Festival 2013 posterAttica Rage also release a new double-track single ‘LONG RIDE HOME’ from 88MPH via Off Yer Rocka on Monday 8th July 2013, available to download from iTunes and all major music stores.  The second track is a previously-unreleased live version of ‘ROAD DOG FOREVER’ and a live video will accompany the release.  A promotional video from album producer roddymacaudio, showing the studio recording of ‘Long Ride Home’, will also be posted online.  Both videos will be available to watch on YouTube. 

Those two songs together tell two sides of the same story” explains singer Jonny Parr. “Where Road Dog Forever is an all-out celebration of life on the road and devotion to the rock ‘n roll lifestyle, Long Ride Home is the anti-thesis – it’s the harder part of being away from home, missing loved-ones and ultimately dealing with the choices that have been made along the way.”

New album 88MPH was released worldwide with an official launch at Hard Rock Hell VI last year and has been welcomed by fans with positive reviews amongst the rock press.  ‘Long Ride Home’ is the third single to be released from 88MPH – ‘Killer Carousel’ was available as a free download during the album launch and follow-up single ‘Beyond Forever’ was released in March.

ATTICA RAGE RELEASE BRAND NEW ALBUM ‘88MPH’ PLUS DVD ON 1 DECEMBER 2012

ATTICA RAGE are to release brand new album 88MPH worldwide via OFF YER ROCKA on 1st December 2012, with three live launch parties in Wales, Glasgow and London.

The follow-up to critically-acclaimed second album Road Dog, the new recording was once again produced and mixed by roddymacaudio at Titan Studios West in Glasgow, Scotland and mastered in New York by Michael Tucci at Masterdisk (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Nirvana, Pearl Jam).  88MPH is a diverse collection of hard-hitting biker rock anthems, grinding blues-infused metal riffs and searing ballads and is the first album recorded with new bassist Colin Wilson. The album also features guest appearances by Lanarkshire-based singer Emma Nailen and Attica fan Marko Duckworth, who landed the task of battering a beer keg with a baseball bat!

88MPH will be officially launched with a full-throttle, live showcase at Hard Rock Hell VI festival in Pwllheli, North Wales on Friday 30 November 2012, sharing the weekend bill with headliners Testament, Sebastian Bach and Buckcherry.  The album launch continues with two headline shows at Glasgow Classic Grand on Friday 7 December (with special guests Afterlife and The Amorettes) and London Nambucca on Sunday 9 December.  Tickets are on sale via Tickets-Scotland and Ticketweb and there are also exclusive VIP ticket packages and merch deals available directly from the official Attica Rage website.

Talking about the album, singer Jonny Parr comments, “We completed 88MPH in six weeks and took the deliberate decision to go for a gutsier, stripped-back sound – this is the purest fans will have heard us on record yet. We’re all very proud of 88MPH and we know the fans are gonna love it!

Attica Rage are also set to release their first ever, long-awaited DVD, ROAD DOG FOREVER – a live concert film and documentary chronicling the making of the Road Dog album. Filmed over a two-year period by director Colin Wood, the feature-length movie gives fans a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the recording studio, backstage at gigs and festivals, the dressing rooms, the hotels and life on the road, with all the rock n’ roll debauchery and excess along the way.  A second disc of bonus extras includes other live tracks, official promo videos, deleted scenes and more. Released to tie-in with 88MPH, the DVD will be available via the Attica Rage website and is also included in the album launch party ticket deals.

Summer Road Rage 2012

ATTICA RAGE return to Ibiza this summer for the rock n’ roll holiday festival week-long bender that is HRH Road Trip – The Third Chapter in May, graced this year by US punk legend Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg!! (see below for full line-up). The week in Ibiza is sandwiched between a select few headline shows in England.  Joining Attica Rage on the ‘Summer Road Rage 2012’ tour for all dates are special guests and London hard groove rockers ZODIAC N BLACK.
