Praise for Big Ups:

"Big Ups are the punk band to watch for 2013." - Noisey

"There’s a new noise coming out of Brooklyn these days, a heavy, chaotic, and unrestrained blend of punk, hardcore, indie, noise, and post-punk that sort of vomits in the face of all that’s pleasant. Leading the joyously filthy pack are Big Ups, a quartet who encompass the true spirit of punk, demolishing audiences with an abrasive mixture of intelligent riffs, rhythms, and manic shouts that toe the line between terrifying and oddly charming. Witnessing them live is a must. The quartet quickly become unhinged, delving into the debauchery as a genuine extension of the music they create." - Exploding In Sound

"NYC's Big Ups are a completely fun and instantly likeable band. They play high energy ramshackle punk rock that you'll want to get messy and sweaty in Texas to. See Big Ups when you feel like mixing it up. But in a pleasant way. Be nice. Stay cool. Have fun. And Long Live -- Punk Rock." - Oh My Rockness: 13 Bands You Should See at SXSW
