“...The debut EP from this 4 piece band from Trenton, NJ is without question one of the best offerings I’ve heard from a rock and roll band that still has yet to find a home on a record label...” - Next Gen Noise

“...They stray pretty widely from punk to garage to new wave. I prefer it when they stick to the latter, with an appealing, dark, fuzzed out guitar, and frantic vocals. They could mature into something real interesting...” - Amp Magazine

“...The Frantic’s brand of rootsy rock and roll is overwhelming in its brooding patience. ‘A Story of Betrayal and Lust’ hangs menacingly below the explosion line, constantly teasing the listener with brief tantrums...” - Origivation Magazine

“...Fully in tune with each other and how to rock, The Frantic’s simplistic yet rich melodies are stapled all over this smart seven-track disc (debut EP), giving fans of fist-pumping rock something to cheer about...” - Ear Candy Mag

“...For those of you who figured garage was strictly the domain of
Williamsburg and perhaps Jersey City, here’s Trenton with all three of its chords... the one thing they do have that separates them from the skinny-tie-and-mess-cut crowd is the one thing that the town that brought us City Gardens can offer -- a nice punk foundation...” - Hush NJ

The Frantic is a rock and roll band from Trenton, NJ. Formed towards the end of 2003, the band started as an energetic garage/punk band, but has since evolved into something more unique. They have been compared to legendary bands like the Jesus and Mary Chain, the Stooges, and the Clash, as well as modern day bands like the Hives and B.R.M.C. Although the band draws its inspiration from styles of the past like garage, new wave, punk, and early British invasion bands, they fuse it all together to put out a driving sound brimming with urgency that is all their own.

They've toured up and down the east coast, as well as a mini tour of the UK in the summer of 2006, and played with the likes of the New York Dolls, Supersuckers, the Chesterfield Kings, the Charms, the IV Thieves, the Dead Trees, and many more. They've recently recorded at the legendary Water Music in Hoboken NJ.
