Leading school assemblies followed by evening, full-production concerts coast-to-coast, Indiana-based pop/rock band Attaboy releases its sixth full-length and first Radiate Music album, WILD, today (Sept. 13). Available now at Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and more digital retail and streaming outlets globally, WILD channels infectious pop music that has landed Attaboy radio success and sustained years of full-time touring.
With all songs written by Attaboy band members Ryan Payne (vocals/guitar/piano), Jeff Edgel (guitar/piano), Melanie Morris (bass/background vocals) and Christian Morris (drums), WILD was produced, engineered and mixed by Doug Weier (Anberlin, We Are Leo). The album features the Parade.com-premiered anti-apathy track “Waking Up,” courage-inspiring single, “Fearless,” along with songs of surrender (“Let It Go”), determination “Dirty Lie (feat. Beacon Light),” commitment (“Never Going Back”), forgiveness (“Giving Up the Fight”), loneliness (“Disappearing”) and more.
Witnessing a ubiquitous longing for authentic social and spiritual connection, Attaboy is taking its relevant, energic new music, fan favorites and hopeful messages to school assemblies, youth conferences and other events coast-to-coast. Attaboy’s fall 2019 schedule includes stops in Michigan, Ohio, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri and more.
During its school assemblies, the band uniquely combines its energic and relevant music with a positive message for students, sharing personal experiences of taking a stand for what is right and encouraging students to make their own decisions. Topics they cover include not judging others based on appearance, rejecting the negative labels placed by others, making wise decisions and not letting the past define the future.
