American metalcore four-piece Attack Attack!
has officially called it a day. After six years of work, the group has now announced the current "Back in Action"
tour as their "final and most ironic"
"Well everyone, it's been a wild ride for Attack Attack, but I think it's about time. Whiting and I take some time to write this note. We want to start by thanking every single one of you that has ever come out to a show, bought a shirt, gotten in a fight over crabcore, or spent the time to send us notes online,"
says the Facebook announcement
. "We have been insanely blessed to be able to do what we have done with AA and we think it's time that we wrap up this chapter in our lives."
"Yes, this means exactly what you think it means. The "Back in Action" Tour will be Attack Attack's final and most ironic tour. After 6 long years of playing in garages, VFW halls, clubs, open air festivals, and everything in-between. We've decided it is time to lay AA down for good. You are all beautiful, wonderful people, and we want you to know that we deeply appreciate everything you have done for us."
"We are sad to lay Attack Attack to rest, but are very excited for what is next in this new chapter of our lives."
"Stay Tuned! Much love, the Andrews."
Formed in 2007, Attack Attack! have released a total of three studio albums. Their latest effort, "This Means War,"
saw its release in January 2012, selling over 17,000 copies within the first week and landing at No. 11 on The Billboard 200 chart. The groups final concert is now set to take place on May 29 in Millvale, Pennsylvania.
