Meansteed / Press

“Well this be the band they call MeanSteed. Three guys an a gal who stuff attitude, cattitude an’ whatthehell’sthat-ittude into a landfill of riff’n’lick stomp‘n’pomp stink. The tongue’s so deep in the cheek pick you can pick out the tastebuds. And this? Well this be the EP they call Cabin Fever. [Soft Break][Soft Break]It kicks of in a blaze, whips up a storm, all thunderin’ drums, warrior howls and ya got me hooked hooks. The opening seconds of the first song that comes (that’s ‘Idiot Without A cause’ to you an I) piledrives an penetrates like no good goodgirl should and it just don’t let up. And why would ya wannit to? It’s quick short sharp shot of hardthing adrenaline that quits where it should leavin you wantin more.”

“Meansteed are a band blessed with both technical grace and unfaltering fury and with this new batch of tunes and the much improved production 'Cabin Fever' will stand them in good stead when it comes to turning heads in their direction. Live their music explodes in your face like a confetti bomb laced with tequila worms and a nice sized slab of that delivery has been captured here on these four cracking tracks. Brash, furious and instantly addictive 'Cabin Fever' is a fine example of exuberant metal for a new generation of old schoolers.”

“Meansteed started things off with a high-octane, uncompromising rock 'n' roll show and riffs that made the crowd go wild! These guys know how to rock out and give the audience what they want; I will definitely be keeping an eye on Meansteed!”

“Meansteed go down very well with tonight’s audience who all get into it, with fists pumping high and getting increasingly sweating in the hot, sold out Borderline.”

“Meansteed was the last support act of the night; they brought their ballsy hard rock music and stage prescence that was very well recieved. Their stage moves such as the guitarist on the roady's shoulders and the frontman rocking out on the table tops of the bar will definitely be remembered in years to come as a rock band. Their tunes were fantastic; lots of great guitar riffs and 80s like blew me and the rest of the crowd away.”

“There’s something really cool about this music, I think it’s the simplicity of what they’re doing which works so well, no frills or complications just downright dirty rock n roll!”

“...Meansteeds arena aspiring rock cookout - marinated by the simple poetry of Engage The Rage.”

James Hickie - Kerrang

“Introducing: Meansteed! Sounding like a cross between Thin Lizzy and AC/DC, Harrow’s Meansteed arrive on the scene armed with an entourage of foot-stomping, hand-clapping anthems. Good ol’ fashioned Hard Rock’n’Roll that Airbourne would be proud of.”

“Their debut EP ‘Engage the Rage’ is a fucking killer of a release. It’s all tight jeans, long hair and black leather sounding but crank this up and before you know it you’ll be playing air guitar and swigging Jack out of the bottle. This is party music - music to fuck to, music to fight to… Music to take you back to a simpler time when rock stars were idols and not whining about the plight of something or other because caring sells more records.”
