“A New Breed Of Monkey are a cool, dirty indie band from Burnley . Their songs are sometimes melodic, sometimes fast and grimy, but never miss-fitting. The band play an upbeat, sweaty set, proving they are one of the top contenders tonight!”
- Surface Unsigned Magazine (May 06, 2008)

“I Only caught the last two songs but that was good… If bananas are the fruits of love then I’m a Northern Monkey”
- Mike Joyce, Quote (Apr 12, 2008)

“A New Breed of Monkey have built up an impressive following over the past couple of years with their dynamic live shows and catchy songs.”
- unnamed, Burnley Express (Aug 10, 2007)

“Their professionalism and showcase of songs proved why many regard these 4 local lads as the finest Indie Band in East Lancashire. Having self released two LP’s in as many years, Joe, Jordan, Matt and Jamie have earned respect by writing well constructed, varied and instantly catchy songs.”
- John Winstanley, A3h Promotions (Jun 12, 2007)

“A New Breed Of Monkey were something of a revelation as I hadn’t heard them before and the first track took me back to Killing Joke’s heyday. This band is incredibly tight and with an excellent vocalist I’d heartily recommend them if you want a great night of post-punk inspired original music”
- unknown, Strummer Magazine

“I’m not one for w**kfest guitar solos but the solo in Can’t Stop Thinking Of You sent a shiver down my spine. Not only does it compliment the (marvellously) catchy song, but it has a lovely warm tone to it and doesn’t head off into the realms of soloing for the sake of it”
- John Winstanley, Lincolnbands Webzine

“… A New Breed of Monkey were were well received by the audience. A few silky-smooth riffs and airy instrumental numbers displayed how well composed the band were as the instruments and vocals melted into one clean-cut sound.”
- unknown, Surface Unsigned Magazine (Jun 20, 2008)
