"New Garage Punk Discovery: Eight Knives"

"Stomping Around with Eight Knives"

"Maiden Names is...just a good old fashioned rock record, filled with energy and just a hint of twang. Seeing as the whole of Tennessee is tearing things up right now, you best keep your eye out on this Chattanooga band." - Austin City Hall

"BandSoup's Soup of the Day"

"Some have described Chattanooga rock and roll outfit Eight Knives as Jack White meets Vampire Weekend, but we’re going to skip the hyperbole and say they sound like a blues rock influenced band that’s ready to take the next step.

“Levels & Lovers” proves just that, giving fans a glimpse into their debut full length album, Maiden Names. With its energetic guitars and catchy woah-oh-oh chants, “Levels & Lovers” is a solid lead single that sounds like one of those infectious tracks that gives a car commercial instant street cred or a song that you’d Shazam expecting it to be the new single from an already established band, but are shocked when you find out it came from a small, rising star from Tennessee." - BandSoup

"So Kings of Leon and Jack White Walk into a Bar…"

"It’s almost as though Kings of Leon and Jack White walked into a bar and created Eight Knives. Yes, I’m willing to say it’s THAT good. 8K has found the perfect combination between White’s distinctive, back-to-basics/ too-good-it’ll-never-be-on-the-radio rock and KOL’s also-good-but-radio-ready rock." - GotDott.com
