The first Puke Rock band to ever rise from Albuquerque, New Mexico!

Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bernalillo County — Friday, February 7th, 2020 — Katarak Attack started out like two high school kids who sat together in Spanish 2 and had a dream. With the lead singer’s Smashing Pumpkins influence, and the drummer’s Porcupine Tree, The Raconteurs, Foo Fighters, and American Football influences, the two would go on to form the band.

Since the band dropped their debut EP in July of 2019, it garnered multiple listens over the course of that month and the following and became a hit among their high school community. As of now, their music sits on all forms of digital music like Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, etc.

Never give up. No matter how far south things can go, always look to the north, and you and your mind will be in a better place.

Katarak Attack is Albuquerque’s first Puke Rock band to come about. They formed in September of 2018 at Eldorado High School. The members currently include Riain McClanahan as the lead singer/guitarist, Jack Rains as the bassist, and Stuart Cole as the drummer. As of right now, they have an EP and a single out on all platforms but will be coming out with a demo album as well as a full-length album sometime soon.
