Interview: Attack! Attack! (UK)

Ze zijn al vaak in ons land geweest, hun songs staan op Guitar Hero 5 en ze zijn één van Kerrangs favoriete bands. Dan kan ik het natuurlijk alleen maar over Attack! Attack! hebben. Deze jongens die uit Wales komen worden vaak vergeleken met hun naamgenoten, alleen vinden ze zichzelf een stuk beter. Met een nieuw album op de planning en een nieuwe tour vonden wij het tijd om frontman Neil te interviewen.

Ben je benieuwd naar de podiumkunsten van Attack! Attack!? Ze staan op 6 april met Zebrahead in de Waerdse Tempel in Heerhugowaard.

Yes because we often get confused with them, but we are better :D

Yes it is . things have and continue to move very fast for us. We are having an amazing time !

Anything and everything is inspiring in some ways, it amazes me everyday when i wake up to think that this is my job and that people care about our band. Our fans are our inspiration!

Just have fun, write songs that you want to hear and hopefully there will be others out there with the same music taste as you.
