Attrition: News

February, 2010

“Something that’s old, and something that’s new….”

As we enter our 30th year….(of which more anon)… there have been some major changes around here…. and i would say for the better….
Inevitably there has been some pain as we have metamorphosised into something new…. and such is change….
and such is life…and every day we wake again…
as somebody once said…
Sin has left us….and i wish her the very best as she continues her life and musical journey…
and i am pleased to welcome Tylean, who will be working with me in ATTRITION for the forseeable future… An accomplished singer, pianist and cellist in her own right, she has released several solo albums… Tylean will debut with us at our show in Manchester in April… check out the other tour dates, including our second tour of Russia in march over here.

It has taken 3 years and much work and 24 CD releases….!
but the final two reissues from the ATTRITION back catalogue are out now on our own Two Gods label!….Dante’s Kitchen…with 4 bonus tracks…and Ephemera are out now…
