Attaloss New Hope For Tomorrow On Debut Album
Even in these tough times, we must have hope for a better tomorrow which will be on April 10th. On this day the rock band Attaloss will release their self-titled album via Rock Ridge. The album should showcase their diversity. At one side high energy blown out rock and the other stripped down acoustic music.
All over the country fans have made their voices heard by tweeting for them to play in their city. Next week the band will be headed out on tour to West Hollywood. Their schedule is already filled till April 20th and more dates will be announced shortly.
"The fans have been amazingly supportive. This journey has been a real roller coaster ride but we have come out of it stronger than ever," continues Danny. "Hopefully that message comes across and inspires people to continue chasing their dreams. Today is an 'Open Door.'"
Release date: 04/10/12

Danny, Chris, Lorenzo, and Dakota all left their respective hometowns and moved to Los Angeles to chase their rock and roll dream. Once they decided to join forces together they began the arduous task of trying to come up with a band name. After kicking around hundreds of potential names, they got news that their rehearsal studio was broken into and all their music gear was stolen. “Getting news like that was such a kick in the gut that we literally were at a loss for words. We realized in that moment that we had our band name,” said guitarist Chris Johansen who immediately began tracking down the thief. With Chris’ help police apprehended the suspect a few months later and the band’s gear was recovered mostly intact. Instruments in hand, they recorded the first five songs on the album in early 2011 and set out on tour around the country playing shows with such acts as Neon Trees, Smashing Pumpkins, and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Realizing they weren’t quite capturing their recorded sound live, they added guitarist/vocalist Matt Geronimo and headed back into the studio to record the acoustic half of the record as a five piece.
