MUSIC RELATED PRESS
"Outstanding..." -The Limerick Post
''Heart-stoppingly gorgeous... extremely intimate and daringly omnipresent.'' - Sputnik Music
''This isn’t comparable to anything you’ve heard before'' Top 15 Albums of 2012 -Murdered by Pirates is Good
''...each track is a work of art leaning towards modern day poetry'' -Flicker Magazine
''A seriously intimate record... a bold statement of intent and musical gesture.'' -Chew Your Own Fat
'' An engaging collection that draws you further into its world with every listen'' -The Last Post and Chorus
WE COME IN PIECES
''A triumph in recorded form...What’s become most striking throughout the album so far has been the guitar work, it doesn’t follow a clear convention and instead changes styles from moment to moment... it’s got that developed feel which most bands don’t achieve until much later in their careers... This is going to be a moment in music which I’m sure people will talk about in future, and you’ll sit back talking about the first time you heard Night Of The Living from We Come In Pieces. To put it simply, this album is a triumph, bravo'' - Loud Stuff
''Probably the hardest working band in Ireland'' -The Point Of Everything
"...brimful of hardcore energy and intelligent arrangements...a rampaginging helping of aggro-metal, with exhuberent vocals battling it out with a relentless band noise...a terrific melody and an arrangement that shifts gears and keeps your ears engaged..." -Hot Press
''...a thundering post-hardcore juggernaut, anvil-heavy riffs collide with powerhouse rhythms, they strip down, pull back and attack again with a furious clarity that recalls Dischord bands like Jawbox and Bluetip in their prime. '' -13th Note
''The real joy, more so than taking in the vast patchwork of influences and marvelling at how they come together, sewn strongly with Limerick accents, is the sheer passion that comes through your speakers/headphones. For a band best seen live (a very frequent occurrence), this E.P. is as close as it gets to bopping around and dripping of sweat, and surely that’s the best thing that can be said about any album'' -Drop-D
''Very exciting...very cool to watch...fantastic musicianship'' -Wired FM
''There isn’t a duff track here, it’s a short sharp shock with a bit of math rock here, punk rock there and a little vintage metal thrown into the mix'' -The Limerick Post
''There’s something about a band who can raise you out of Wednesday glums with a smart battering of upbeat, proper rock tunes and that’s what We Come In Pieces are doing for me here today'' -Harmless Noise
''An adrenaline fueled rush that will save you a fortune in Red Bull purchases. - I Review Rock
A YEAR AND CHANGE
''Effortlessly cool; from their eye-catching artwork to their DIY aesthetics...Pitchfork could be fawning over them this time next year. For now, get ahead of the pack and listen to them before it was cool.'' - Golden Plec
