Mars Attacks

Mars Attacks


Formed in 1998, this Austria/Swiss based band released their debut CD/LP "...Run For Your Life!" in 1999. They later released "Snatch It & Grab It" in 2000 (4-track vinyl EP), "Dirty Tricks" in 2003 (CD/LP), the concept album "Circle of Love" (CD/LP) in 2006, followed by their 2008 release “Follow Me!” (CD/LP on Blue Lake Records). The new album “Recaptured!” is out since April 2011 (CD on Part Records)!

Over the years, the boys have been rockin' all over Europe in France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Ireland, Croatia; and even rocked the house in Moscow/Russia. They've also made appearances at Hemsby Rock´n´Roll Weekender (England), The Rockabilly Rave (Camber Sands UK), High Rockabilly Spain, Summer Jamboree Italy, Tear It Up Festival Croatia, Bedrock Weekend Denmark, Rockin' 50's Fest II & III (Greenbay, WI, USA), Rhythm Bound (Los Angeles, CA, USA) and toured the U.S. 5 times, from the south to the mid-west, east coast to the west coast.

They've backed up SUN Records legends Sonny Burgess and Billy Lee Riley, country/rockabilly acts Narvel Felts, Rosie Flores, as well as Specialty Artist Roddy Jackson and also Nick Curran.

The hot stage show and varied program – mostly made up of self-composed songs (including the meanwhile famous trumpet songs) and a well-chosen selection of rockabilly classics - transform each live performance into a special encounter – or should we say a special encounter of the third kind... grab your children, grab your wife, Mars attacks, run for your life!!
