If you don’t know about The Attack, you’ve been missing out on a gem of the Sunshine State’s punk rock scene. But worry not, Paper + Plastick got your back. They’re now offering a free download of a range of The Attack’s jams from past and future releases to get you up to speed. Check it out here!
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.
