"A high energy animated offering... 'Freakshow' is sizzling ripe bait for the new EP, underlining the band’s penchant for dramatism and mastery in uniting creative elements one would not otherwise conceive could be combined" - The Spill Magazine

"Successfully blends several sub-genres of music with a raucous vibe and warped themes... infectious high-energy music, capable of boosting your blood pressure and exploring themes that are simply unparalleled" - The Record Stache

"Fast, loud and gruff "circus punk"... the imagination that went into this EP – from fantastical concept to composition and delivery – is so much greater than anything produced by most modern bands" - Stereo Embers Magazine
