From Novembers 2016 Vandala Magazine 

There is no sense in trying to be eloquent in describing this album, it is anything but. Take Control is a full fledge angst-ridden pure British punk album. Produced by Beastie Boy member Mike D (who also makes an appearance on the track “Consume Or Be Consumed”) this release is loud, trist into the world of punk rock music. The songwriting is top notch and pulls you with a very catchy rhythm section, and before you know it you are hit in the face with the aggression and cheekiness of angered irate youth. On this release, the band was looking to have a policy all lyrical theme hoping to inspire to have an opinion and let it be known, which is made quite clear in the opening track “Spit It Out”. This is an album definitely one of the most exciting and energetic punk fans should have been waiting for, and albums to come out this year. Music that will make you opens your eyes physically, mentally, and possibly politically.
