The Attack brings punk back to basics: short, fast riffing songs about the social, music, and media driven politics of today. Formed by Charlie Bender, one-time frontman for the Orlando, Florida-based ska-punk band Spitvalves, and his partner in the acclaimed screen printing company Enemy Ink, Brad Palkevich on guitar. The two are joined by bassist Mikey Cortes, and drummer Tito Esquiaqui. This quartet delivers the kind of vintage melodic hardcore street punk that will take true punkers right back to the days of CBGB’s Sunday matinees. The Attack is ruled by a DIY ethos and driven by a goal to re-unite punks and skins and hardcore kids under the same underground flag.
‘Simply put THE ATTACK play classic punk and hardcore. The Attack remembers when shows were an explosion of energy, excitement, and DIY ethics. The Attack was there when circle pits and mosh pits lived happily in the same shows and sets’ – Pastepunk.com
‘The Attack are a Florida based group that intentionally straddles the line between classic hardcore and old school melodic street punk. Distinct from the toughly and metallic sounds dominating the hardcore scene, their catchy throwback style tunes caught the attention of groups like Cro-Mags, H2O, and Leatherface, all of whom have included the band on upcoming live dates.’ – Metalsucks.com
