Kill Rockstars


May 26, 2018

“Mating Surfaces is easily one of the best releases this year.” - Bandcamp

“The band’s genius lies not only in the idea of doing so much with so little, but also creating an immersive experience with such serrated edges.” - KEXP

"Elevating promise to certain brilliance, Aubrey Hornor’s languid vocals are fully present yet deftly unemotional on ‘Mating Surfaces’’ dozen combustions." - Loud and Quiet

“it's easy to see what's special about Lithics. They are intense.” - NPR Music

“For the sake of repeating ourselves, Lithics could just be the best post-punk band of this generation” - Post-Trash

“Lithics are one band that you would be a fool to ignore.” - Louder Than War
