This event is all ages
A Cardiff, Wales, band brought together by a strong love of punk, grunge, and new wave, Attack! Attack! UK first started blowing audiences away in 2007. Their frenetic electro-screamo brand of 21st century attitude was a quick success, and by 2008, the band signed a deal with American label Rock Ridge and released its debut (a self-titled affair) that same year. In addition to garnering attention from the professionals in the biz, Attack! Attack! UK also managed to create quite a buzz with the civilians and colleagues in the rock music universe, sharing stages with such names as Lostprophets, Go:Audio, and Funeral for a Friend. The members of Attack! Attack! UK were no strangers or newbies to the scene, however. Neil Starr (vocals, guitar), Will Davies (bass), and Ryan Day (drums) had earned their stripes and honed their chops as part of such former outfits as Dopamine, Adequate Seven, Midasuno, and Petes Sake. In addition to a strong reception to their album from the rock press, Attack! Attack! UK landed the band a rather high-profile festival appearance, storming the stages at 2008's Reading and Leeds Festivals in England. ~ Chris True, All Music Guide
The Plot in You
What started as a side-project of former Before Their Eyes (Rise Records) guitarist/vocalist, Landon Tewers, quickly became his main focus.
After parting ways with BTE, a solid line-up for the band was formed and work on their debut EP was underway. "Wife Beater" (InVogue Records) was both heavy as well as haunting, where lyrically Tewers gives you a look inside the lives of people he has come into contact with over the years.
After signing to Rise Records in 2010, the band has been steadily writing for the first full length, which will be released in early 2011.
We started the band with the motive to not be another mundane closed minded group of musicians. We were all sick of the regurgitated music that was being put out, and unhappy with how Intolerant the music scene had become in our hometown. This gave us the passion to create music that not only went against everything in our hometown scene, but also to make music that truly made us feel whole. The meaning behind the name "Get Scared" is to not hold back in life. Do whatever you are passionate about, get out of your comfort zone and don't be afraid of failure, the only way to fail is to never try at all. Get Scared
