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. 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...
We are super bummed to announce that we have to cancel the shows we had scheduled for March. Wetzel slipped and fell, which tore the cartilage in his already injured left knee. We are very disappointed, but we’re sure you are used to the amazing luck we have as a band. We love you all and promise to make it up to you on our spring headliner!
Attack Attack! have released a statement about the departure of Caleb Shomo and A.J. Holgado and the aquisition of Tyler Sapp and new vocalist Phil Druyor (I Am Abomination). The band has also released a new song entitled "No Defeat" which you can stream/download on Alt Press.
The Scream It Like You Mean It Tour (ft. Attack Attack!, The Acacia Strain, and seriously lots of other bands) has announced its routing and lineups. Check out the dates on the really complicated tour poster in the replies.

This week's record sales charts are in, and it looks like Attack Attack!'s This Means War managed to sneak into the top 10 overall with 17,500 sold. Congrats to Rise Records. Perhaps more importantly, they outsold Nickelback - who came in at No. 11. Please leave your thoughts on this in .gif form in the replies. Also relevant: Adele sold under 100,000 units of 21 for the first time in a long time, but if you count sales of 19, she was still over that benchmark.
I may have held off on some of the other posts this morning if I knew this was coming. A new Attack Attack! song can be heard in the replies, the video announces the new album This Means War will be out on January 17th. And are those cadaver penises in the album artwork?
