Launch June Headlining Dates Following
National Tour with The Thermals
“Summer Cannibals got its name from a song by Patti Smith and Fred “Sonic” Smith. Like Patti and Fred, the band does not shy away from tackling big issues in its work.”
— NPR All Songs Considered
Recent Kill Rock Stars signees Summer Cannibals expertly balance flame-belching Mad Max riffage with lyrics frankly exploring questions of codependence and need.
“The album’s title track is exemplary of that control, with alternating sections of calm and mayhem reminiscent of early Sleater-Kinney. It’s a jagged, blistering three and half minutes of intertwining, rhythmic bass and electric riffs and smashing drums.”
“There are shades of late 90s Sleater-Kinney in the loud-quiet-loud of it all, not least in Boudreaux’s voice, snarling at all the right moments.”
“The band’s latest zooms in with a series of robust guitar chugs, sharpening its already metallic edge.”
“ …refine the fuzzy garage-pop of its debut into something sharper, tighter, and much more difficult to shake off.”
— Entertainment Weekly
