STARTING-off the year with another high calibre act at The Venue, Dumfries, Fire The DJ Promotions presents Welsh sensation Attack! Attack!
The band will perform their alternative rock show on Sunday, February 19, for the first time as part of a UK tour before heading off to play at Soundwave Festival in Australia.
After the release of their self-titled debut album Attack! Attack! have clocked up several tours alongside some of the biggest UK and US acts around including Lostprophets, Kids in Glass Houses, New Found Glory and Funeral For A Friend.
After the band’s instant success, they began to play the world famous festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Download and Sonisphere.
They also had a song selected to feature on the popular console game Guitar Hero 5.
Currently in the studio recording their third studio album, Attack! Attack! have taken time out to record a special limited edition acoustic album alongside limited edition posters for each date of the tour.
A spokesperson for Fire the DJ Promotions said: “This show will be the last date on a special small venue tour so be sure to head to The Venue to see Attack! Attack! before their next UK tour at large venues in bigger cities.”
Support on the evening comes from German tour support Itchy Poopzkid and local act The Sheepwagon from Annan bringing their own brand of punk rock.
Sean Vs The Robots, fresh from his Magical Mystery Tour and one of the main highlights from this year’s Big Burns Supper, will open up the show with his unique and entertaining electric pop/rock sounds.
Doors open 7.30pm.
