"catchy and infectious... it soon becomes clear that the craftsmanship of these songs belie the punk insensibilities that are to influence. There are no scruffy fade outs or lacklustre intros - every song starts and ends with well measured and often surprising capitulation... keeps you listening to the end... There are plenty of angry songs here with bile, blood and sweat but not too many tears." Gravity Guide

"plenty to cram in... with the hooks to impress serious musos and the melodies to keep the floating fans happy - they have clearly a lot of talent and ideas they want to show off.... filled with experimental sounds, excellent choruses and energy, this is a debut filled with promise." Kerry Eustice (News Shopper)

"The twin vocals and very energetic riff driven punky songs kick a fair old amount of butt here..with a hint of Bloc Party's tandem guitar work, this has wired post punk cool throbbing throughout. Ever so exciting sound these Honeycubers have... Pavement meets The Stooges?!" Bugbear

Honeycube's debut album is released on MHM October 5th!
