The Attack Announce Multi-Language EP

Posted by - 02:07 PM on 05/15/14
The Attack will release their multi-language EP, Under The Gun, on June 13th. By enlisting friends and fans from all over the world to help with the translations, the band will be releasing five versions of the new EP, each with a lead track in a foreign language, and available through iTunes in all the territories where the foreign language featured on the track is spoken - example, Spanish version will be available in Spain as well as South America. Including tracks sung in Italian, German, English, Spanish and French, the band recruited help for languages, sent the music and transcribed lyrics, and then received a written translation and a voice recording for pronunciation purposes. Frontman Charlie Bender learned and recorded each track which was then sent back to the translator to check for accuracy.

Track Listing:
Side A: Under The Gun (English)
Forecast
Side B: Wake up World
Under The Gun (Spanish)

Wouldn't it just be easier to have a version with only instruments, that way the universal language can be spoken without having to release five different versions of the same thing.

I dig the idea but it might be more successful on paper than in practice.

Will they use two languages on one of these songs ?
"Including tracks sung in Italian, German, English, Spanish and French" : Five languages ; four songs.

Still an interesting idea. After all, why not ?
I just hope French will be understandable.

Always glad to see FR is still part of the "main occidental languages" after all.

pretty sure it means they recorded the same four songs with five different vocal tracks; one in each language

Yeah. I have a weird obsession with the language and am glad it somehow makes it to every DVD dub.

Don't know this band but commend them for realizing English isn't the only language in the world - wish more bands would sing in their native languages, fuck the Anglophones who are too staunch to listen to a different language.
