Vicious sweet dirty pretty

The Assault are an all girl power-pop trio from Brooklyn. Their origins go back to when Margot Bianca (guitar, lead vocals) and Laura Leontine (bass, vocals) met at the tender age of 17 and proceeded to get in all sorts of trouble together! As they matured, they embraced their shared passion for sound and embarked on an adventure together to make their own music.

They quickly made a mark! In 2001, they became a 3-piece and just over a year later, they were invited to play CMJ Music Marathon and Ladyfest East. In early 2003, Julie Pop (drums, vocals) joined the band, and they haven’t slowed down! To date, they have played to fully crowded venues with The Gossip, Tracy & The Plastics, Semiautomatic, Northern State and others.

These are three special ladies we should all keep an eye on. They’ve got what it takes to steal the hearts of the masses, rainbows, unicorns and pop culture references in tow.

p.s. have a look at the note The Assault sent in with their press kit & CD.
