“Formed only a few months ago by former members of Everything Zen and the Thrifters, Mentor's Call Us Kings storm out of the gate with the six-song EP Nut Up or Shut Up, which features some tight pop-punk harmonies that suggest the band locked in quickly. The rollicking "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Dice" features a crunchy guitar riff and sweet harmonies; the ballad "Reality Check" wouldn't sound out of place on a teen-themed TV show or movie.”
"That Was Then (This Is Now) is sure to get picked up by radio all over the USA. This is an infectious, fun tune that I can hear kids singing over and over again. First time I listen, it stuck in my head and all I could do was try and sing the chorus. Call Us Kings is definitely a band on the rise and one to look out for in 2010"
