"Inside, for some time, everything starts to feel like nothing. When there is no give or pull, no change, that nothing spreads. It expands as new universes might in all directions enveloping all things around you until they too seem like nothing. Four people find each other and understand themselves better. Four people find the night and the world together. Four people's inspiration rests softly upon that which surely inspired language and music at their most young and innocent. Four people's expressions are then one ambition. They live to lend to the world, by choruses of choruses, a moment imbued wholly with life. Its radiance juxtaposed against a grey and endless curtain of languor. Brightness falling always from the air. Faces in the flowers smiling. Find us in the wells of water spotting reflections luminously on your soft umbrella of exalted time. Find, in them, your proud and distant parts. Find us,by time,desirous of nothing and of nowhere..." Attack in Black ~ June 2007
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. With infectious melodies and unique vocals, their lyrics are thought provoking and insightful. Attack in Black's swaggering, spirited live set can convert even the most jaded concert-goer.
In Spring 2006, Attack in Black signed to Dine Alone Records (home to City and Colour, Bedouin Soundclash, and Walter Schreifels). 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. During off time, Romano and Burton have lent their talents as back-up band for City and Colour and Romano is a multi-instrumentalist on Dallas Green's upcoming City and Colour album. Currently the most played Canadian artist on the Edge 102.1, Attack in Black is honoured to be one of the few artists invited to perform on Borrowed Tunes II: A Tribute to Neil Young. Their new album Curve of the Earth is available digitally and as a limited edition vinyl as of mid-November.
