ATTICA RAGE is a heavy rock band from Glasgow, Scotland who recently celebrated their 15 year anniversary, having formed in Glasgow in March 2003. Since the release of debut album Ruin Nation in October 2008 (with mastering by Ace of Skunk Anansie and artwork by iconic Motörhead artist Joe Petagno), Attica Rage has released a further three, critically-acclaimed albums, along with singles, bonus tracks, videos and a feature-length live concert & documentary film.
Reviews, blogs and airplay from the likes of Classic Rock ('Track of the Day'), Metal Hammer ('Album of the Month'), playlisted on Planet Rock, Total Rock ('Album of the Week'), spots on Hard Rock Hell Radio's weekly charts, plus magazine cover-mount CDs in UK, Germany & Sweden plus live TV appearances - have all helped Attica Rage reach a wide-spread global audience.
Attica Rage have clocked up hundreds of shows on headline tours across the UK & Europe as well as opening for acts such as Black Label Society, Saxon, Testament, Iced Earth, Skindred and Iron Maiden's Steve Harris British Lion amongst others. Seasoned festival veterans, highlights over the years have included Bloodstock Open Air, Download, Hard Rock Hell, Hammerfest and High Voltage, sharing bills with titans such as Judas Priest, Slash, Anthrax, Slayer, Killing Joke and Down. Attica Rage also performed at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards show party, on a boat sailing along the Thames river, London. In summer 2017, Attica Rage headlined the official Iron Maiden Trooper Beer Party at the Hard Rock Cafe on the day the metal legends visited Glasgow on their Book of Shadows World Tour.
