Bio

Punk Rock’s Not a Fashion Show.

Attack Ships On Fire plays intense, angry songs with a sense of humor. Firmly rooted on a foundation of punk rock, and with an impressively sarcastic wit, the attitude is clear: powerful music doesn’t have to be depressing. ASOF isn’t looking to redefine punk rock but wants to take it back from the people who just don’t understand that music is about sound and not image. “Punk rock’s not a fashion show” isn’t just the chorus from one of their songs it’s who they are. The music scene has become ‘The Scene’ and it’s more important that you stand out by looking and sounding like everyone else. ASOF does’t. ASOF won’t. These guys want to have fun, make some ears bleed, and see smiles on the fans faces when they’re leaving the show.

Attack Ships On Fire was formed in 2003 and, after much turnover on every instrument in the band, ASOF was truly born in 2007. Vocalist Mike Bell was joined by drummer Allan Carter, bassist Kevin Cameron that year, and guitarist Dave Boyle came aboard in 2009 to make the band, at last, complete. With the lineup in tact ASOF quickly got to work getting out the word and garnering attention. There were the ‘victories’ in battles of the bands, countless club gigs throughout Oregon, multiple tours through the western states, [which always end up at the Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, ("The new CBGB's" (Blender, Sept '07),)] RollerCon 2007, 2009 and soon 2010, showcases, Emerson History X, (a Portland radio icon’s 10th listener party,) the beginning of the side-project, Hit Me Baby, (‘The Only Punk Rock Britney Spears Tribute Band You’ll Ever Need,”) all culminating in the May, 2009 release of the band’s second full-length album, Punches Are Free, with an album preview show at the Double Down in Vegas and the official release party at the Red Room in Portland, OR followed by another trip to the Double Down in Vegas a stop at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institute in Pendleton, OR.

ASOF is currently lining up the summer tour, complete with an anchor date back at the Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, for RollerCon 2010.

Real music isn't pretty. We are not models. Punk Rock’s Not a Fashion Show.
