The best kept secret in music


Self-released debut 7 tracker from these NJ rockers. They stray pretty widely from punk to garage to new wave. I prefer it when thy 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. ASOBAL hangs menacingly below the explosion line, constantly teasing the listener with brief tantrums, but retreating before we are exposed to anything more than the tip of the iceberg. That mysterious quality embraces the listener and won't let go until the records over. - Origivation Magazine

The Frantic is a New Jersey-quartet whose sinewy blues bitten alternative rock shuffle reigns over A STORY OF BETRAYAL AND LUST. Going two steps beyond bar band fare with their inventive songwriting, drama-building dynamics, and hard rock backbone, songs like "Ver 2.0" are transported from the garage floor to the stage with ease, while the title cut shimmies with shameless rock 'n roll spirit. 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, giving fans of fist-pumping rock something to cheer about. - Ear Candy Mag

Feeling a bit camera shy


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.
