so i know everyone is all sad about johnny leaving n stuff, but it might have been the best thing that happened to them. caleb has improved screaming and brings a whole new sound to the table with his clean vocals. another reason johnny's departure was great is because it either made them get a new guitarist or take johnny's writing out of the equation. the guitar work on this album is far superior to anything they've ever written before (check the middle of the confrontation). i haven't heard a bad song on this album. everything is still there, just in a much more mature manner. i love it, and you should too. this is a new attack attack and they're here to stay


New > Old

New AA is so much better. I can't get over this album. Best way to kick off 2012! Best song on here to me is The Wretched. You can tell & hear how much AA has matured. I love this album, you should too, and i love Attack Attack! :D


Omg # fail

AA failed on this. If you want to listen to one long song, go ahead. Buy the album.

About Attack Attack! (US)

Not to be confused with the myriad Attack Attack(s) that were all the rage at the outset of the 21st century, the Ohio-based Attack Attack! was a screamo/metalcore outfit that held true to a strict set of Christian beliefs. After forming the band in 2005, members Austin Carlile (vocals), Johnny Franck (guitar, vocals), Andrew Whiting (guitar), Nick White (bass; later replaced by John Holgado), Caleb Shomo (keyboards), and Andrew Wetzel (drums) inked a deal with Rise Records and released their debut, Someday Came Suddenly, in 2008. They also released a video for the album's lead single, "Stick Stickly," and drew some heavy criticism from publications like The Guardian, which likened the band's synchronized headbanging to "a pack of novelty dashboard toys who've been nailed to the dashboard of a milk float." Following the old adage that any press is good press, Attack Attack! continued touring in support of the record, sharing stages with the likes of Black Tide, Burn Halo, and Escape the Fate along the way.

Carlile left during the 2008 tour and was replaced by former For All We Know vocalist Nick Barham, who remained with the lineup for one year before making his own exit. Rather than hire a new singer, Attack Attack! promoted keyboardist Caleb Shomo to the frontman role and began working on a new album. The self-titled Attack Attack! appeared in June 2010, marking Shomo's debut as lead vocalist. Later that year, Johnny Franck announced he was parting ways with the band, leaving Shomo to handle all of the vocal duties. The band's first album as a quartet, This Means War, appeared in 2012, and also featured Shomo not only handling all of the vocals on the album, but the production as well. ~ Chris True & Andrew Leahey
