Goat Herder / Press

"When it seems like there’s an overabundance of local bands starting up, sometimes it takes a little more for newer bands to stand out. Luckily for New Haven’s Goat Herder it doesn’t take much for them to make their presence known."

“Ha! Nice name. Four songs. Heavy “mosh” parts (does anyone say that anymore?) broken up with speedy, metallic hardcore parts. It’s a simple formula and it’s done well here. The more I listened to this, the more I dug it. The track “Motive” stands out.”
