"Alpha Male Tea Party have quickly become one of my favourite bands, ever" - Alex Baker, Artist of the Week: Kerrang! Radio (July 2013)

"Riffs skewed to ear-puncturing angularity? Time signatures like a bathtub hoofed down a lift shaft? Check." - Kerrang! Magazine

"soaring riffs clash with grungey undertones and swooping choruses to culminate in the most exciting band we've heard in a long time." - Front Magazine

"Math-rock as an additive-induced technicolour rampage, this five-tracker is a gaudy, often glorious burst of juddering grooves, radiant riffs splayed at all angles, and stroppy, nasal vocals caught huffing sherbet." - 7/10: Metal Hammer

"Mr Bungle taking magic mushrooms with Primus. Be afraid!" - Metal Hammer [cover mount featured artist]

"hearty riffs, zany rhythms and nutty titles make up this tidy EP" - 4/5: Nuts Magazine

"This lot's philosophy includes a heroic approach to, well, fun." - Rocksound

"On 'Taste Like Dog', the band hit upon a satisfying - if sugary - heaviness" - Band of the Week: Rocksound (Aug 2013)

"Alpha Male Tea Party barely put a foot wrong on [their] new EP... they were perhaps ones to watch beforehand, they are now ones to follow closely." - 8/10: Already Heard

"[On] 'Taste like Dog', the hefty riffs that are the Liverpool trio’s forte rear up, with erratic rhythms showcasing the band at their most ‘math'... 'Go To the Ant, You Sluggard' [is] more vocal-led [and] the track most likely to enlarge their fan-base thanks to a sleekly accessible chorus." - The Skinny

"It’s my #1 EP of the year and you can quote me on this... the type of honest, loud rock we need right now." - Sloucher

"As ever, Alpha Male Tea Party have showcased their ever improving game and utter fearlessness… 20mins is the perfect running time. A snap shot, a cold fish slap-to-the-face view of the colossal experience that is Alpha Male Tea Party." - Musical Mathematics

"These AMTP cats take the precise complexity of the math rock genre, which we happen to really like round these parts, and mix in the pounding, roiling grunge of industrial and metal... As a HUGE fan, I can tell you that I am ready for more already." - Echoes & Dust
