Attack! Attack! UK has already made quite an impact on the independent UK music scene. Since the release of their self-titled debut album in November 2008, the band has sold over 7,000 copies and counting. Their new single “You and Me” is one of their live show favourites, which showcases their upbeat, melodic and live energy.
MIDEM 2009, which ran from the 18th to 21st of January, is seen by music professionals from across the globe as a place to discover up-and-coming music superstars and meet with the music community at large. During MIDEM 2008, Irish band, The Answer, was discovered at a similar Guitar Hero Listening Session, resulting in one of their popular tracks appearing on Guitar Hero® World Tour's set list.
“It's generated unbelievable exposure for the band.” Commented The Answer's frontman Cormac Neeson “In this day and age its one of those priceless mediums to get our music out to people who wouldn't normally be discovering us.” The Answer are currently on tour with AC/DC.
