Gavin Butler (The Blackout) Acoustic
Welsh rockers Attack! Attack! have announced they are to split after their forthcoming tour. The decision was made after two members of the band, for personal reasons, reluctantly decided to call it a day. The remaining two members, Neil and Will, have taken the hard decision to put an end to the band.
Singer Neil said “Will and I have thought long and hard for months and months about what to do for the best. Ultimately we decided that we didn’t want to replace Mike and Ryan, it just didn’t seem the right thing to do.”
As this will now be Attack! Attack!’s final tour they decided they wanted a support act that would not only be a great entertainer but someone they have been friends with for along time. Attack! Attack! have played a tonne of shows over the years with fellow Welsh band The Blackout so they asked Gavin Butler who sings for the band to come out on tour with them. He will be playing his solo acoustic material with A!A! on most nights of the tour.
When asked about Gavin playing, singer Neil replied “It’ll be perfect to share the final tour with such a close friend. We want this final tour to be a celebration of all the great times we had and we hope it’ll be a send off to remember.“
