“The twosome of bassist-vocalist Jared Warren and drummer-vocalist Coady Willis… feel best as a power duo,” said Revolver in a recent article, adding, “The Beast You Are… is another slab of sludgy, gnarly, punky, riffy heavy rawk.” Treble said of the duo, “they are simply better at hard rock than most other bands playing,” while New Noise said Warren and Willis “sound rejuvenated” on the 13-song release.

The album, including vinyl packages, is available now via Joyful Noise Recordings’ webstore (
