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 @ Hammerfest V

Attica Rage return to Hammerfest on Friday 15 March at their new site at Hafan Y Mor, Pwllheli in North Wales.  We’ll be playing a rare, acoustic unplugged set at 14:15 in the Mash & Barrel pub followed by a fan signing session at 15:30 in Starbucks before hitting the Main Stage at 17:15 for the full-throttle, fired-up 70-minute live show featuring a whole bunch of new songs from album 88MPH plus Road Dog faves and a few special guests 😉

The full range of new 88MPH merchandise will be on sale at the official stalls over the weekend along with CD albums and the new DVD.  There’ll also be a couple of discount bundle deals on offer – more on that soon.  If you want to get kitted out in advance with one of the new t-shirts, vests, hoodies or beanies, browse the official Attica Rage online store here and place your order before the Mon 11 March deadline.

We hope to see all the Clan Attica Hammerfesties out in full force so please share this info & flyer around everyone you know that’s attending the festival.

More updates coming soon 🙂
