Robert Van War leaves ATTIKA – Announces new band and project


Robert Van War, former singer of ATTIKA from Florida US and current singer of ONWARD from Wyoming, US, has sent us some important news and updates.

He announces his department from ATTIKA, he points his main focus on ONWARD and he shares with us all his future plans about a new project and a new band. Here is his message:

“Hello Metal brethren,

Iā€™m reaching out to let you all know that Iā€™m no longer involved in ATTIKA. It is amicable… It was simply something I realized I needed to do.

As you know, I am currently involved with ONWARD. The new album “Of Epoch and Inferno” is killer. My involvement with ONWARD has been a very challenging and growing experience for me. Iā€™m very honored to be working with Toby to help him moving ONWARD into a new chapter.

In between:

I am working with some great artists from other bands on a recording project we call SLIVER. We are excited about this and look forward to hear from our Metal fans. Who knows, maybe we will do another someday!

In the days Iā€™m not working with ONWARD, I will be working on my first solo band called VAN WAR. This band and news will remain under lock and key until the proper time!

Thank you all for supporting ATTIKA and ONWARD.

Rob Van War
