Always April / Press

“Seriously listened to Always April on my way home tonight........such an amazing piece of work! Got into new tracks like "Blindsided", Wavelength, Dry Mouth, and more I can't remember titles for...........I need to go over this and get correct titles for all 7 tracks I heard, too good not to shop.”

Ron Geslin, Vigilante Music

“What can I say about a band that just ROCKS!? While listening to this CD I felt Insane, hyper and out of sorts... I LOVED it! Charmaine on vocals has the Bluesy reincarnation style of "Gits" front Lady Mia Zapata and guitarist Josh Coker rocks with intensity and raging loudness like 7 year bitch. Extremely Grunge and brutal it makes one reminisce about mosh pits, patchouli oil and B.O. a passionate band, full of energy and raw instinct I fell in love with them immediately. Visions of stage diving and ratted,dirty hair come to mind when the song "ELVIRA" starts up! Rich guitars, heavy bass,dark drums, insane lyrics what more can one ask for in a post grunge/progressive rock band? Then there is "Variation," the teaser I like to call it. It starts off slow, almost beautiful with nice, soft pristine vocals then starts up the heavy guitars once again then back down. Almost a manic depressive,moody song. Brilliant,gritty and edgy this band is one to check out and throw your deodorant at!”

“As a self professed cross between Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, The Pixies, Fugazi and Incubus, Arkansas' Always April certainly have a shroud of mystery around them. Their glam tinged fuzz rock has a special sound to it, something that is almost impossible to pinpoint. Perhaps it has something to do with the way the band just puzzlingly formed. "We have all been playing music in different bands most of our lives and all have come from different big cities around the nation to Salem, Arkansas for completely different reasons," the band states. "We met by sheer coincidence within a two week span and realized that we could make a good band, and the rest is history." For some reason, almost everything about this band has at least some type of cloud surrounding it, but that might have more to do with the bands members than anything else.”
