"Panic Years may be fairly new to the scene but they came to Philadelphia with a purpose… once you hear them you will know exactly what it is. There is a rare blend happening here."
— ~ Wendy Rollins, Music Director, WRFF-Radio 104.5, Philadelphia
"Panic Years aren’t your indie-rock/blog-rock trendy band of the moment, which make them even more appealing. They’re a straight up alternative & punk influenced band that know how to write some great songs and play like they mean it!"
— Bruce Warren, Program Director, WXPN, Philadelphia
““Not a lot of Philly bands embrace the olde "alternative" tag, but Panic Years do and dammit it works. The pre-emo passionate vocals, the soft-then-loud transitions, the clangy guitar/catchy-melody combo — these guys woulda fit in just nicely between the Posies and the Pumpkins on 120 Minutes.”

"With a sound reminiscent of Silversun Pickups and Pixies, Panic Years puts a contemporary spin on the best of 90’s alternative, centered around Everett’s gritty made-for-rock vocals."

"Indie-rock... refreshing and real. No glitz or nonsense. This 5-song EP won't have Panic Years without a label much longer. Check them out now."
"Sparing us of any sort of hipster trend du jour, this Philly four-piece are actually quite traditionalist, dispelling brisk, churning guitar-rock crafty enough to hover just below the mainstream radar, wielding a modest indie aesthetic. "
