Carving out a unique slice of the creative underground for over two decades, fueled by a succession of critically acclaimed albums,selling over 50,000 to date.
The band has toured all Europe and North America, Mexico and Asia, appeared at major festivals and had their music included on a number of film soundtracks.
Formed in 1980 by Martin Bowes and Julia Waller in Coventry, England, influenced by a mix of punk ideology and experimental art aesthetics, they emerged as part of the early 80′s UK Industrial scene alongside contemporaries Test Department, Coil, Legendary Pink dots, In The Nursery, Portion Control et al.
Their music is an undefinable marriage of dark and light,of futures and pasts,probing unexplored sonic landscapes with an eclectic marriage of experimental and traditional sound, of electronics and acoustics, of male and female.
"Attrition have always been a nexus of industrial fury, gothic drama, ambient structural finesse and classical chamber orchestrations. Stunning in scope, character and intellect, Martin Bowes has been a paragon of true creative prowess, holding in two hands the past and future of music, and smashing them together with a calculated and charismatic menace.Bowes builds his dark industrial music with all the compassion and attention to detail of a classical musician" [Electroage /US]
On Dec 8th in this year it`s the 30th anniversary of the first ever Attricion Show.
The band will release a best of colletion " Dreamtime Collectors", a 16 track CD album compiled by Martin,featuring many rare versions of ATTRITION classics and a cover designed by Russian artist and film maker Edward 209.
