Latest Attika 7 News
Below is our complete Attika 7 news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Attika 7 - led by vocalist/bassist Evan Seinfeld (founder of the legendary Biohazard/star of HBO’s Oz) and guitarist Rusty Coones (FX's Sons of Anarchy) - is wrapping up work on a new full-length album, which is set for a mid-2015 release.
Today a vicious new track titled "Darkest Day" can be heard with an accompanying lyric video below, courtesy of Revolvermag.com.
Evan Seinfeld states: “Attika 7 is proud to release 'Darkest Day’ to the masses. This is easily our heaviest track to date. We think a lot of people are going to be very surprised about the sound, the energy and the musicianship. We have been working harder than ever to take our music to the next level.
“This is the ultimate revenge song about the wheel of Karma coming full circle and the hand of fate, whether by our hands or yours delivering some real justice. Too many people think there are no consequences to their actions, and revenge, a dish best served cold, can taste so sweet. When someone has done you wrong, you don’t always get to pay them back and when someone takes something from you, something must be done! The weak will beg for mercy and receive NONE, if Attika 7 has anything to say about it."
Coones further comments: “Attika 7 is an alumni of Rockstar Mayhem and Uproar festivals in recent years. After touring season ended in 2013 we took a hiatus. We wanted something new, something different. We didn't know what it was gonna be, but we weren't gonna stop till we found it. We decided to experiment with new sounds and influences. No rules, just strive to develop something epic. These new songs are the beginning of this journey, not the end." More...

Honor-Respect-Freedom-Passion.”

In 2011, a shattering force comprised of diversified heavy metal veterans arose amongst the hills of California, rapidly emerging as new, refreshed musical project Attika 7. The fan-dubbed “super group” is set to release debut full-length album, "Blood of My Enemies" on July 31st, 2012 with Rocket Science Ventures in the United States.

“As I embarked on my journey of musical and personal reinvention, the first step was to put together a band of incredible players, with diverse styles and a unified vision to write, record and perform timeless heavy metal, backed by an authentic outlaw lifestyle,” states vocalist Evan Seinfeld. “Second, was to write and demo songs from our hearts and then to align ourselves with an amazing team in Rocket Science/THC for our debut release. Between Kevin, Thom, and the whole RS family, we feel such a strong sense of support and commitment from the label and we are stoked that we have real partners in helping us to launch the Atika 7 Army.” More...
Attika 7 is a brand new force in the ever-evolving heavy metal world, featuring Evan Seinfeld (formerly of Biohazard), lead guitarist, songwriter and famed motorcycle builder Rusty Coones, bassist Tony Campos (founding member of Static X, who also currently performs in Soulfly), and drummer Dustin Schoenhofer from Walls of Jericho and Bury Your Dead fame. Attika 7 will be releasing a debut album later this year and is currently working on a first video for the single "Serial Killer."
Evan feels that Attika 7 is the beginning of a new chapter. “As much as Biohazard has been the biggest part of my musical past and my main musical focus for more than two decades, it is time for me to do something new. It is time for me to cement my musical future. I continue to stand behind the ideals projected in songs I wrote like ‘Down For Life’... and philosophies like standing up for what you believe in no matter what and sticking by your true friends and family to the end! I have so many creative ideas that needed a new home to flourish and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a member of Attika 7!”
“It is time for me to go on to something exciting and fresh to pursue my dreams and expand my horizons in a more positive situation for me,” adds Evan. “Biohazard is a band that I personally conjured and founded in 1987 and helped me to realize many of my dreams, see the world, and connect with many fans everywhere. I hope to keep the memory of Biohazard where it belongs, in a place of dignity and respect!”
