The brand new album from Attica Rage, 'Road Dog', is officially unleashed today - Monday 4th April 2011.
After a successful launch party at the recent Hammerfest festival, Attica are pleased to finally let it out the cage! "It has been a long-time in the making and we can't wait for you to hear it!"
Produced, engineered and mixed by Roddy Macaudio in Glasgow, Scotland and mastered by Mike Tucci at Masterdisk, New York, the album is a diverse collection - 14 tracks of classic hard rock grooves, blistering metal riffs, powerful ballads, blues-infused biker rock plus a few extra surprises along the way, including guest performances by alternative blues artist Dave Arcari and singer/songwriter/cellist Christie Connor-Vernal.
