Keith began his career at the legendary Marquee Club with the hit band “Child” before touring the world with Bonny Tyler, David Cassidy and others.
Atack – Modern rock with classic roots
Atack is the eponymously named new project from Keith Atack, one of the UK’s most in-demand session and touring guitar players. He began his career aged 16 performing at London’s renowned Marquee club with Child, a band that went on to have a string of hit singles and albums. For the next three decades, Keith was the world tour guitarist of choice for acts such as Bonnie Tyler, Rick Astley, Jocelyn Browne, Barry Manilow and many others.
In 2022, Keith decided to return to the classic rock music he loves and called upon some of the hottest names in UK music to join him. From arena band Thunder came Chris Childs on bass and from the legendary Sweet, Lee Small joined on vocals. Bob Richards was recruited on drums after depping with AC/DC on two video singles and on Hammond organ, acclaimed session player and educator Nick Foley finalised the band’s line up.
Focussing on driving rhythms, soaring vocals and exceptional musicianship, the band quickly signed to Escape Music and began recording their debut album. Two singles, “My New Addiction” and “Ain’t Got Nine Lives” have been released so far and received extensive airplay across the UK, USA, Europe and as far as Israel and South Africa. The videos for these tracks have logged tens of thousands of views across the band’s YouTube and social media channels.
The album is scheduled for release in the first half of 2023 and the band is hard at work in the studio finalising the tracks. To accompany the album, the band has also begun accepting festival and concert dates for the summer with many more to come.
