Passive Attack are cultivating their own idea of progressive, beat-prone rock in the musically fertile (under-) ground of Vienna.

Passive Attack live @ Filmcasino Vienna

October 29, 2011 by passive attack

In line with the premiere for vienna´s first medieval-horrorflick “Kendrick – A Grim Tale Of Hatred And Revenge”  we played a  short aftershowset in one of the loveliest settings to be known: a big screen in the back, an very attentive audience in the front and us rocking in the middle, just tasty!



By the way: the soundtrack for that motion-picture was composed by our drummer (Simon alias senor seccharetos) and is available now on CD @


(created by Christoph Gerhard alias “yetifilm”productions , produced by Danila Neuwirth alias “diecheckeria” productions)

Mother’s Cake / Passive Attack @ B72

October 11, 2011 by passive attack

It´s been a night of fun, anger and delicious beer. Due to illness Milk+ had to cancel their attendance. After we paid B72 for their kindness, we were allowed to enter the stage. So we did our thing and had an awesome time watching Mother´s Cake afterwards.

We had a very nice gig before the summer-break together with „The Lucid“. Many thanks to Andreas Bischoff for shooting us! Check out more photos on facebook.



Surprised?! So were we!

May 22, 2011 by passive attack

In May 2011 we were supposed to play a support-gig for the Norwegian stoner/punk-rock band „Sønderknust“ at Ernst-Kirchweger-Haus VIENNA. We felt very excited to perform at this famous and quite familiar location.


But when we arrived there for stage setup we heard that „Sønderknust“ would cancel and the house would be quite empty that night because of a big party at the squatted wagonplace next to Wiener Prater. EKH´s stagemanager Maggie asked us if we were interested in playing there. So we started packing our stuff looking forward to at least have a good party.




In the end we got on stage at around 2 am and had lots of encounters with many nice people, some old friends, a bottle of delicious honey liquor (thanks to Magnar from „Sønderknust“) and an open-minded audience.


Thanks and Greetings to EKH, the wagonplace community, „Sønderknust“ and „Curva Apparata“. We had a great time!
