Attack Attack Announce Breakup
2013-04-22 by Nathan Flynn CONTRIBUTOR | 135 Comments
The two remaining original members of Ohio metalcore group Attack Attack!, Andrew Whiting and Andrew Wetzel, have announced through Facebook that their ironically titled Back in Action tour this summer with The Plot in You will be the group's last. The band has been struggling to get back on its feet after the departure of founding members John Holgado and Caleb Shomo last December left Attack Attack! with no vocalist or bassist. This exodus, combined with new vocalist Phil Druyor's lack of comfort performing harsh vocals live, are certainly key factors in the group's decision to retire the name. However, the reasons for the breakup have not been explicitly addressed apart from the aside "we think it's time that we wrap up this chapter in our lives." A more detailed explanation may be forthcoming.

I'm pretty sure that they're just putting "Attack Attack!" to rest but will release their new stuff under a new name. They just got Phil as a vocalist, there's no way that they just stopped making music.

The first comment was pretty funny.

My only concern is, they were currently recording an album. Is that ever going to be released, or what?

Anyhow...I did like listening to this band. Their first album, "Someday Came Suddenly" was actually a very fun listen. Many can't tolerate it...but ah well. Their second album wasn't too shabby either.

Yeah band totally got me into heavier music. I used to hear Carlile's vocals and literally get irritated, but there was something so catchy about Bro Ashley's Here so I kept listening. Then I sort of began to like them. I obviously grew out of them because they obviously suck balls but still, technically, if it weren't for Attack Attack I would not be listening to the Faceless right now, or Veil of Maya, or fucking Cannibal Corpse.
