Sonic Attack is the eleventh studio album by the English space rock group Hawkwind, released in 1981.  It spent five weeks on the UK albums chart peaking at #19.  The album was produced by Dave Brock and recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales.  The album features a more heavy metal-influenced sound than previous Hawkwind albums.  The title track, "Sonic Attack", is a re-recording of the Space Ritual spoken piece with a new electronic backing.  "Virgin of the World" is credited as being from Church of Hawkwind, and it appeared on that album in a different form as "Experiment with Destiny".  "Angels of Death" was released as a single backed by the non-album "Transdimensional Man".
The group undertook a 28 date UK tour in September and October to promote the album, with support from Mama's Boys.

The album was well-received by critics and fans alike, and it is considered to be one of Hawkwind's classic albums.
