Belfast, County Down
"Belfast's Abandcalledboy have lived by the mantra of heavy riffs, big hitting sound and an admirable attitude to play every gig like it may be their last. As such, the power trio have (in reality very little time) worked their way into the capital cities hearts as one of our funnest and most energetic outfits...perhaps we should be surprised by the raw genius and beautifully original concept behind their latest single, 'Cliff Richard', but, to be quite honest, we're not." - Taylor Johnston, EncoreNI
"This Belfast trio are now among my favourite bands of the moment" - Chewyourownfat.com
"These three lads put on probably the best live show we have seen from a new band ever. Exhilarating, dangerous and downright entertaining. " - All Gone Pop
"...uncompromising live presence with fearless youth energy bolstered by the kind of raw noise that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Albini-recorded Sub Pop compilation." - Daniel Robinson, Live4ever.co.uk
