“overflowing with (quite possibly) the best and most energetic merging of country and punk rock I’ve ever heard.”

“If you like country-punk, these guys are the reigning kings. If you like adrenaline-fueled punk albums, you’ll still like this album. And, amazingly, if you like hot country, you’ll find treats for your ears here. 500 Miles to Memphis has pushed their sound out to new areas and conquered them thoroughly. An amazing release.”

“Malott and the band have blended evolution and revolution, creating a combustible sonic mixture that explodes with a blistering twang and Punk energy.”

“What do Johnny Cash and The Ramones have in common? According to Ryan Malott, lead singer for 500 Miles to Memphis, more than you may think. “Country and punk are both just about being honest, about expressing what you feel in an open and honest way,” he said. Cincinnati’s 500 Miles to Memphis is one of several bands following the recent resurgence of cowpunk, a blend of country, blues and punk rock. The movement has roots in 1980s Southern California, led by groups like The Cramps.”
