World War IX / Press

"The best trashy punk band in NYC"

Chuck Foster - The Big Takeover Magazine

"How do you feel about vintage American punk? I’m talking about the stuff that is angry and fun at the same time. I’m talking about early Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Adrenaline O.D., Rich Kids On LSD (RKL), Flag Of Democracy (FOD), Mucky Pup, Spermbirds, Murphy’s Law, et al. I’m talking about guitars plugged straight into amps with no effects, lots of gang vocals, groove for days, beats that just keep on beating. Yeah, me too. Rejoice! World War IX is here for you. For me. For us. For punk"

The Impaler Speaks

"World War IX seem to be on a whole other mission to irritate some people, satisfy the old schoolers looking for something true to the core, and most of all, do it in such a quick period of time that if you love them you want more and if you hate them, they are happy they made you hate them in less than 10 minutes."

In Crowd Zine

"Fill(s) the needed gap for nasty, sloppy, reckless abandonment that seems to have declined with the rise of the Internet. Perhaps what is most interesting is that for all the finger pointing the band does, they don't come across as holier-than-thou, if only, because they paint themselves as a bunch of wasted jerks with a sense of humor."
