ACIDIC / Press

"If there is anything that rock 'n' roll needs right now, it's bands that maintain that steady course to rock 'n' roll glory no matter what the obstacles, and ACIDIC has done just that with three albums and an electrifying live set that they have taken all over the country. The band's third album CREATURES is their most ambitious album to date with their natural hard-rock inclination melding flawlessly with electronic flourishes."

"Oh man. love the lyrics. cool tune! ("Lost the Will")"

“The Darkness and Papa Roach weren’t the only countdown arrivals this week. Upstart rockers Acidic made their Battle Royale debut with “Chicago,” which took the No. 5 spot, while Sworn In‘s “Scissors” took the No. 8 position. You can see all of the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.”

"Very interesting sound these guys have. I definitely dig this track ('Chicago')! I watched some of their live shows on Youtube and they really do tear up the stage."

Matt Casillas - MadDog Radio

"We received a ton of great feedback from the listeners on this song ('Chicago')...most said they 'liked it and would like to hear it again', a few puffers said it 'had a good groove to it', and a 'good driving song'. Phone calls and texts are usually light on Friday’s but we had a great response on this one. I liked it too!"

John Perry - 95FM WIIL Rock, Kenosha WI/North Chicago IL:

"Wow. I really dig that ('Chicago'). Groovy and hip. That guitar hook is as infectious as it gets. You don't really want the song to end. THAT'S A HIT RIGHT THERE." -

“Southern California rock band ACIDIC was invited to play for the Air Force all over Europe during the 2010/2011 holiday season. They were very grateful for the opportunity to give back, but by the end of the tour it was unclear who was more moved.”

“When Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue tweets out “Digging ACIDIC’s song Copper Man Just picked it as my Sixx Pick,” you must be doing something right (side note: Does Nikki Sixx make Sixx Picks for everything? Meals? Romantic companions?). ACIDIC’s fourth LP Chronic Satisfaction roots itself definitively in the hard rock legacies of the ‘80s and ‘90s, equal parts “Dr. Feelgood” and “Mountain Song”.”

“Acidic There is always room for some stupid and fun hard rock on the Warped Tour and California's Acidic are glad to provide it. Fronted by the gleefully demented Michael Gossard, Acidic play silly music with serious energy.”

““Entrancing, incredible sound and vibe the band gave off… Gossard ran through the crowd while singing soulfully and jumped onto the bar, taking everyone by surprise. Killer performance!””

““Straight from the get go, ACIDIC brings forth its frenetic energy and passionate sound in waves of indie alternative delight, distortion-glazed guitars, dazzling percussion and bass and high-octane rocket powered vocals.””


““Bucking the current hard rock trends, ACIDIC are a treat. At times reminiscent of Jane’s Addiction, Wolfmother and Eve 6, the band manages to successfully combine indie rock elements with bombastic guitar grooves.””

The Beachcomber

“A retro-riff so big and ballsy, I bet Tony Reed, the mastermind behind Stone Axe would be nodding with approval. ”

Racer, The Ripple Effect

““These guys aren’t afraid to rock out. Gossard can really wail with his vocal at times and the band is full of energy. They move all over the stage, enjoying every minute of every song they play.” - Nicolas Bates, Rukus Magazine”

“Rocks Like: Funeral Party, Cage the Elephant, Young the Giant.”

Alternative Press magazine, Dec. 2011 #281

“Having already won the 18th Billboard World Song Contest Award, in the Alternative category for their song ‘Strata Red’, California’s young rockers ACIDIC will surely be out for more accolades in the year to come. ”

"Acidic is a young energetic rock trio who delivers high quality performances every time they hit the stage. These talented musicians are a mix of grunge style punk and classic rock. Their stage performance is magnetic and full of musical talent. The band is a joy to work with."

A. Celina Denkins, National Booking Agent - Whisky a Go-Go

"These guys have what it takes; the youthful exuberance of Green Day with Coldplay sensitivity. They have found their voice and have a familiar yet original sound that will resonate with today's audience."

Damion, pioneering Southern California FM rock jock - Dial Global.net, KLOS-FM, KLSX-FM, KMET-FM

"One of my favorite bands to work with. They have a huge draw, promote like crazy and put on one hell of a live show. Acidic is welcome at the Canyon Club anytime!"

Justin Edbrooke, Booking Agent - Canyon Club

"These kids scream potential!"

Bob Strauss - L.A. Daily News

“Classic rock riffs, nifty fretwork, anthemic vocals (Mike Gossard could very well be Craig Mabbitt (Escape The Fate) in disguise). ”

Music Review

“With hook-laden rock ‘n’ roll they reel you in and don’t let go. But once they do let go? Once the music stops… you may find yourself wondering if you’ve been smiling that dopey-ass grin their whole set. My guess? Probably. ”

“The song ('Uninspired') is impressive, with a chorus that will keep you humming all day long. It reminds me a little bit of Nirvana’s "Lithium" in the way Gossard performs the vocals and in the angst you can hear in his voice. ”
