about

Rush&Attack is a punk rock band from the edge of the western world: the crazy, awesome, fucked up city of San Francisco. Even though they sound like they came out of the California hardcore scene in the late 70s, two-thirds of the band wasn’t even born in that decade. The Rush&Attack Symphonic Funtime Singalong Band is vegan and liberal, so they write songs about not killing animals, loving homosexuals, and not really digging wars. Although they try to play really fast, occasionally their songs drag on for a full minute and a half.

Considering the focused intensity they display as a unit, the band’s background is diverse. Ryan is from Kentucky, so he’s just as happy sipping bourbon on your front porch as he is talking about the Ramones and playing bar chords. Kevin hails from the mega-metropolis of Santa Rosa, CA, and got his punk rock chops singing vegan anthems with Engage and pounding pleather skins with Siren (before selling out for indie street cred with Aim Low Kid). If you ask Alex where he’s from, he’ll claim Reno. This means he is really good at stealing your money and crushing your dreams on any given night.

Three Ring Records is happy to partner with Rush&Attack for their debut release. This self-titled EP, containing six blistering tunes in six minutes, is presented on limited edition “Black Smoke” vinyl. Adhering to the bands DIY ethics, the hand-numbered, silkscreened sleeves display the original artwork of Brandon Swinehart, and each comes with a hand assembled zine. Though limited to only 300 records, the EP will also be available at all major digital retailers.

If you like your punk rock with the raw energy of Black Flag, the thoughtfulness of Chomsky, and the attention span of the Minutemen, you should check out Rush&Attack. If not, Bible Study is down two doors and on your right.

Track Name: Road Rash
The tracks that took you to and fro
are the ones that took me down.
I had this on my mind
as I picked myself up off the ground.
Dead skin on the concrete
Fresh scars on my knees
I get back on the bike
before I begin to bleed.

Road rash can burn so fucking bad
but it can't slow me down
Places that I need to be,
places they haven't found.
Dead skin on the concrete
Fresh scars on my knees
I get back on the bike
before I begin to bleed.
Track Name: Every Night
Every night every night every night every night
I get mine I get mine I get mine I get mine
I don't care just what you say
Give a fuck what you wanna play

Going down.
Track Name: About Me
You think you know a lot about me
Got a feeling you're about to learn more
Like I don't like being fucked over
But I'm happy to even the score

Don't try to fuck me round

All you do is take take take take
Like a skeleton, you're bleeding me dry
You forgot this blood is pure
I'm fucking revitalized

Don't try to fuck me round

You think you know a lot about me
You think you know a lot
Track Name: Bike
Got two wheels and I'm going fast
So get your four wheels off my ass
Bombing hills and running lights
Drunken bike ride tonight

Go! Fuck! Your! Self!

Feel so good in the Bay air
Doesn't matter, helmet or hair
Grab your bike and grab a beer
Drunken bike ride, have no fear

Go! Fuck! Your! Self!
Track Name: Dreams Do Come True
It's not the night that I wish I had
Feels so wrong to feel so fucking bad
Friday's a dream and Tuesday's gone
Things I thought I was, so clearly wrong

So fuck. This.
I'm sleeping alone
Truth. Is.
This is my home.

And I'm on my own tonight.
I'm on my own tonight.
Track Name: Black Smoke
What did I do to offend you
What did I do to make you think I should die
What did I do so abrasive
What did I do for a bullet between my eyes

Parade Big Boom Black Smoke Coming Soon

My neighbors never did a thing
Oh but their expression of grief and pain
My wife never cried so hard
Now I must dig your country's grave

Parade Big Boom Black Smoke Coming Soon
