"New Horizon sees the band at the most stripped down and intense. This is pure overdriven rock 'n' roll with absolutely no frills in sight. It definitely rocks!" - Kerrang, Sept 2013
"New Horizon is a blistering return to form and bulges with the kind of blues infused and euphoric hard rock that first made them stand out from the lazily retro hordes. New Horizon sounds utterly fresh and relevant today" - Metal Hammer, October 2013.
"New Horizon delivers in style and Neeson's gravel-gargling vocals are stunning throughout" - Classic Rock 2013
