Canadian rock outfit Attack in Black was formed in the early 2000s in Welland, Ontario, Canada. Early comparisons of their music were made to aggressive post-hardcore bands like Gainesville, FL's Hot Water Music, but the quartet later integrated more of a folk edge to their punk musings and claimed as much influence from acts like Neil Young as they did Refused. Attack in Black consisted of vocalist/guitarist Daniel Romano, his drummer brother Ian Romano and vocalist/guitarist Spencer Burton; Ian Kehoe replaced original bass player Matt Ellis following the release of a self-titled EP. The band signed to Toronto-based label Dine Alone Records in the spring of 2006, joining a roster that included artists like Moneen, City and Colour, and Bedouin Soundclash. (In fact, some members of Attack in Black served as part of the backing band for Alexisonfire guitarist/singer Dallas Green's side project City and Colour.) The Widows EP and Northern Towns 7" both surfaced before Attack in Black issued the full-length Marriage via Dine Alone in July 2007, which featured a healthy mix of rock, folk, and yes, some punk. The Curve of the Earth followed that fall solely as a digital release and limited-edition vinyl. ~ Corey AparPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
