"Whoever you are and whatever you’re doing, chances are Groan are having a better time. The UK-based chicanery rockers are at it again…pumping out a thick groove and ’80s metal gang shout hook and every bit living up to their stated “67% true doom” ethic." - The Obelisk

"Those riffs; those wails; I want to laugh, but goddamnit this is going to get stuck in my head." - No Clean Singing

"Although this is just a 5 song EP, it packs more of a punch than most full lengths I have heard this year and I hope this is a taste of GROAN to come because they sounding larger and tighter than ever." - When Planets Collide

"Discard an emptied can of Red Stripe into a time portal set for Monsters of Rock at Donnington in 1984 and whichever stage it lands on you’ll doubtless find that band’s influence in Groan. And yet “influence” is the key word here; Groan are by no means a glorified ’80s tribute act." - Fuzz + Hellfire Magazine

"Okay yeah I guess I do sort of like this." - Cat Jones' mum
