Attack of the Mountain Medley is the second official extended play by the Christian pop punk band Eleventyseven.
The EP was released digitally via iTunes on August 12, 2012. It was also released in a physical format, but is no longer in print as a set number of copies were made. The EP segued from the band's usual synthpop/pop-punk fusion genre into folk rock. The topics of the songs include aspects like Mormonism, bumpkin trailer parks, the creation of the earth, and country romance.
Lead singer Matt Langston posted three videos which showcased some footage of the recording process behind the EP, as well as talking about release dates and social media.
Overall, the EP received positive reviews from professional music sites. Many of which noted that the band had gracefully moved from their typical synth-driven punk pop into folk for the release.
Indie Vision Music did note that "Attack of the Mountain Medley isn’t the album for everyone with some not-so-kid-friendly themes and a distinct musical flavor that certainly isn’t Top 40, but if you’re looking for some porch sittin’ music, look no further."
All tracks written by Matt Langston.
