Attack Attack! release debuts at #1 on the independent music chart

Attack Attack!, the Columbus, Ohio outfit known for its frenetic sound, debuted at #1 on the Independent Music Chart and scored the #26 position on the Billboard Top 200 chart with its brand new self-titled release which sold well over 15,000 copies right out of the box.
The #6 Top Current Rock Album in the country marked the best debut week in Rise Record’s history.

Rise Records officially started in 1991 when founder Craig Ericson was still in high school. It then took an 8-year hiatus and started releasing vinyl in 1999.
The Portland-based label’s first official CD release was in 2000 for the band One Last Thing. Since then it has been releasing a steady stream of in-your-face, unrelenting rock, culminating with the recent impressive Attack Attack! debut this week.

In a recent interview with Substream Music Press, Ericson noted: “2010 is going to be a busy, busy year. We’re gonna have a lot of great records. I think this will be the year we really shine.”

With four Rise bands already confirmed for the Vans Warped Tour, including Attack Attack!, it seems Ericson (who was recently selected as one of 2010’s “Innovators” of the year by the editors of Alternative Press Magazine) is more prophet than promoter.

Fans that show proof of purchase of the new Attack Attack! release (6/14/10 and onward) can be entered to win an Attack Attack! Golden Ticket which will get the winner and a guest into any Attack Attack! show forever.

Fans need to email proof to goldenticket@riserecords.com.
