Attica Rage UK Tour
Scottish heavy rock titans Attica Rage released their fourth studio album Warheads LTD back in June and have announced a UK tour for the autumn.
Warheads Ltd is a diverse mix of catchy rock anthems, heavy metal riffs, epic ballads and even a bass solo instrumental track. The album addresses a wide variety of topics including the Scottish independence debate, the business and profits of war, Alzheimer’s Disease and the pressures of modern life. Musically, Attica Rage continue to push boundaries and blur the lines between rock and metal with a liberal dose of punk, blues, Southern rock and orchestral scores thrown into the pot.
A healthy appreciation of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society can be heard throughout, with the sneer, grit n’ snarl of The Almighty and Motörhead. Iron Maiden, Metallica and Anthrax can be referenced too, but delve a little further into the album and there are nods to the Southern-rock roots of Blackfoot and the atmospheric blues of Gilmour’s Pink Floyd. Attica Rage proudly wear their influences on their tattooed sleeves.
Warheads Ltd is the first Attica Rage album to include bassist Matthew Ward who joined the band in May ’14 and has co-written 2 of the 10 tracks. The line-up is completed by founding members Richie Rage (drums) and his brother Jonny Parr (vocals & guitar) with Stevie Bell (guitar).
