Quotes

“pure punk rock that’s equal parts melodic as well draining heavy chord progressions that strike you like a huge wall of sound.” - Rock Era Magazine

“Real rock and catchy motives of the new songs will bring aesthetic pleasure to any lover of punk-rock and related styles” - Indie Dock Music Blog

“As soon as I hit the play button I was assaulted by this music that hit me straight like a punch in the face. Direct and honest punk rock with no strings attached.” - Edgar Allan Poets

“From the opening seconds to the closing track, Voice of Addiction have not rested to put the best of their work across. With a cannon’s energy and a strafe gun’s capacity-this band has gone out of their way to put forward some of the best punk I’ve heard since I started writing. The worm I cradle in my ear belongs to them. The broken plaster on the walls in my home are their doing.” Sinusoidal Music

“from the first few seconds of the intro to the big encore of “Wrong Turn”. MASTERFUL!“ - Roadie Music

“Great heaviness to this track, while still being catchy as hell. The result is a sound that’ll stick with you” - Kristen Goetz From the Strait

"Every generation breeds courageous idealists who aren’t afraid to question the current status quo, and challenge the mounting social and political frustrations that many working-class citizens are experiencing in their lives. Such bold visionaries make up Voice of Addiction and inspire its latest record." - Shockya.com

"The album is half old-school Good Riddance (ACGTMR era) and half Fugazi, with not-quite-anthem-like melodies. You hear some sprinkles of Graffin-style vocal harmonies and melodies, and it really suits the music." - Bucketlist Music Reviews

"Fast, abrasive yet melodic Punk that is as punchy lyrically as it is through its composition. This is a very well written album, it’s also very bleak and quite sad at times but its determination, its rational belief and thought process are its main selling point so to speak, with its musical prowess a solid bonus." - Musically Fresh

"Their new album, The Lost Art of Empathy, points out a lot of issues in the country and the world with clever lyrics and killer music." - Skope Magazine

"Voice of Addiction sends meaningful messages through a professional, killer sound that is sure to leave you changed...and wanting more" - Indie Spoonful

"The band goes all in to create a cohesive sound, all while a more brooding and emotionally intense sound is enough to ensnare listeners for the long haul. we’ll be playing the crap out of this album through the end of the year." - Neufutur Magazine

"As the band has been around for over a decade, the newest release from Voice of Addiction proves that the band still has plenty to say and the talent to continue making music that lets their voice be heard." - The Rock and Roll Report

"Chicago’s grainy, anthemic punk rock act VOICE OF ADDICTION releases an outstanding new record. Great, energizing listen." - idioteq.com
