Columbus’ Attack Attack!, who launched the “crabcore” movement and received scathing criticism from British newspaper The Guardian and notorious Los Angeles-based music blog Buddyhead when their video for “Stick Stickly” premiered on MTV’s Headbangers’ Ball, will crabwalk their way into the Attic Club in Kettering on December 29.

Recognizing that negative attention is better than no attention at all, the band emblazoned their merchandise with the “Crab Fucking Core” mantra and grew a national fanbase through relentless touring despite detractors. The show precedes the release of the band’s latest LP, This Means War, which was produced by John Feldmann (The Used, Story of the Year, Mest) and drops on January 17 via Rise Records. Known for a distinct style that combines metalcore with auto-tuned singing and techno-inspired keyboards, the band earned themselves a spot on the main stage of the Vans Warped Tour in 2011. The band’s stop in Kettering precedes a national headlining tour in support of the band’s third full-length, which kicks off at Newport Music Hall in Columbus on January 26. Tickets for the show are $20 in advance or $23 at the door. Ludlow Falls, Remember When and Lammes Lane provide support.
