“SPLNTR is a local band from right here in Orange County. You might recognize their name from their contribution "Here Comes Santa Claus" from the Santa and Satan: One and the Same? compilation. From the moment I heard their track "Grind"-- I knew I was in for a ride. While songs such as "Drive" and "Wonder Why" echo the fast, hard-yet-melodic sound of So Cal punk rock, they really show their diversity and outstanding song-writing ability with the slower tune "Night Clubs." I'm happy to see the founding members reunite and reform in recent years, and look forward to what this solid lineup has in store for us next. -Nordy (Sick Boys Radio)”
“review of Drive by fungalpunknature.co.uk, SPLNTR opens with 'Drive', a nasty piece of searing putrescence that drips forth and duly fouls the listener’s initial anticipations. Beginning with spoken gobbage and a grumbling bass the song soon dissolves into an unstable bout of furious aggression that is a one way train headed to oblivion. Wired up the wrong way, freaking out with too much tension this is a crazed opening gambit eased by the brassage that begins the fine repeater”

““SPLNTR has returned to the Orange County music scene punching and kicking. With the addition of Dean Deal, and Neill Bedgood to the original members Erick Armeson, Paul Lieu, and John Aeder, the bands new verve is full of kicking bass, driving guitars, and punch-you-in-the-face lyrics. Adding new songs to the old library, SPLNTR is now a force of nature and the one to watch in the rebirth of Orange County punk rock.””

“FACTOR X SHOWCASE COVINA CALIFORNIA SPLNTR is a band you'll either love or hate, If you're into the heavy punk scene, then you'll probably think this is the best band that's come onto the local scene in years! I admit that the band is hot. Th...ere is so much energy on stage that if it dosen't trigger some kind of response, then you should consider seeing a doctor to see if you're still alive! althougn the band preformed a somewhat short set, they were obviously in control the whole time. These guys know what they are doing, they know what they want, and they know how to get it! It was amazing to see a band like this get such an overwhelming response without even forming a pit! SPLNTR is a band that I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot about in the near future. KATI-ST. JAMES ”
