Attica Rage have issued the following statement regarding the launch of their new album.
"Ladies & gentlemen... it has been a long-time in the making but the new album is about to land very soon!
"Entitled ROAD DOG, the album contains 14 songs and was recorded with producer roddymacaudio and mastered at Masterdisk, New York (Metallica, Ozzy, Pantera, Nirvana, Pearl Jam) by Michael Tucci (Steve Albini, John Agnello). The album is a collection of classic, hard rock grooves, blistering metal riffs, powerful ballads, blues-infused biker rock plus a few extra surprises along the way and we can't wait for you to finally hear it!
