“Like hometown pop/punk heroes Alkaline Trio, The Frantic’s music has found that fragile balance between pop and punk that can simultaneously cause a nose bloodying circle pit and mass sing-alongs.”- Amazon.com
“Say hello toÂ The Frantic, an honest-to-goodness high school rock band with crafty punk leanings so close to Rise Againstâ€™s early days itâ€™s scary.…”- BeepÂ
“26 minutes of fun, snotty, sing-along pop-punk, more reminiscent of classic Screeching Weasel or NOFX than the sort of super-slick dross you might expect….these pretension-free songs turn on snappy choruses and boppy rhythms that will bring summer to your stereo long into winter.”- Daily Herald (Chicago)
“There’s not a lot of real punk music left anymore – not punk music with passion….but The Frantic have created a record that encompasses these qualities, while still feeling like a good old-fashioned party…These young ChicagoansÂ combine the raw power of The Sex Pistols with the hooks of Set Your Goals…. Audio & Murder bursts into action with a shout of “We’re the Frantic! Who the f**k are you?!” and Ramones-esque “hey hey hey”s over pounding drums and stuttering guitars….”- Absolutepunk.netÂ Â
“With a foundation cemented in straight up punk and a shell accented with catchy hooks and just enough mainstream flair, The Frantic are sure to be another Chicago-spawned phenomenon…”-Â Popularunderground.comÂ Â
“The Frantic is a relatively young pop-punk band that considers every track of their record a chance to make you jump up and dance down and scream your head off. Incorporating solid drumming, power-chord chugging, synthesized keyboard accompaniment and gritty sing-along lyricism, The Frantic is a fun way to get your daily dose of punk rock.”–Synthesis
“Itâ€™s hard to listen to Audio & Murder without enjoying yourself. The high-energy guitar and drums sound almost anachronistic, hailing back to a Ramones era of jumping and yelling wildly in a fast-paced chaos….”- UR Chicago
