“Consider this their best album yet, and one of the first must-have records of the year.” - Tom Haugen, New Noise Magazine

"From start to finish, over and over again, this record has been worth my time, and “Stereo” has become my anthem for post-pandemic ennui, validating my compulsion these days to do only the barest minimum of shit I don’t like, so thank you, gents!" –The Lord Kveldulfr, RAZORCAKE

"their take on this mishmash of genres is so electric. 4/5" - Catherine Dempsey, Dental Records Music 

“500 miles to Memphis is a great American rock band that has been making infectious roots and punk music for years while managing to stay under the radar of the mainstream. This new record is everything that is good about rock ‘n’ roll.” - Ryan Smith (Soul AsylumThe Melismatics) -

“We simply love their sound and every song on this fifth studio album works and deserves industry attention, both from radio and music supervisors.  Just from the energy, we can hear in their music, we bet they also put on a hell of a live show. We also love the two songs that feature Philip Peeples of the Old 97’s.  Run, don’t walk, and get this one immediately!” -

"They don’t sound like anyone else. At all. Or at any point."

"500 Miles To Memphis have constructed something wonderful here.  “Blessed Be The Damned”? Hell, yes. The Devil always has more fun, you see, and damn me, this is good." - Andy Thorley, Maximum Volume Music

"this bunch blows their sound wide open as this sounds nothing like the last 4 entries. Aggression is always in fashion and the malcontent vets brought in as ringers here know how to turn it up to 11." -MidwestRecord

“This record rocks! Tons of energy and great hooks. 500 Miles to Memphis delivers yet again. Can't wait to hear these songs live!!” - Bryan Weber(Indie on the Move founder, Zelazowa, Everthing Turned to Color) -

"If you like country-punk, these guys are the reigning kings." - Stephen Carradini, Independent Clauses

"Blessed has so many catchy songs, it’s easy to find yourself tapping your feet along with the groove instead of taking notes or writing a review, and nearly impossible to find a favorite. In short, if you like rock, you’ll like this album. The mean mountain riff of the title track, the 90s punk of “No Doubt About It,” the bluegrass-cum-cowpunk of “In My Chest” – the album is just good from front to back and might be 500 MTM’s best yet." - Brandon Wheeler,

"Bridging the spirit of sweaty punk and old-school country, 500 MILES TO MEMPHIS is irresistible." - CiN Weekly

"Malott and the band have blended evolution and revolution, creating a combustible sonic mixture that explodes with a blistering twang and Punk energy. " - Brian Baker, CityBeat

 "Incredibly dark, sinister and unbelievably brilliant..." - Dayton City Paper

"An exercise in American Eclectic: gritty, dirty and damn good." - Independent Weekly

"expert songwriting that is both incredibly situated and widely diverse" - Stephen Carradini, Independent Clauses 12/11/2014
