“Lead singer Mike Mantione’s lyrics tackle some tough subject matter: mental illness, social anxiety and suicide, to name a few. Yet he’s not flip or ironic about these things; he doesn’t glamorize them, and at the same time he also manages to craft songs which are neither dire nor depressing. Mantione uses these unlikely tools to craft beautiful, melodic and haunting songs that actually make the listener feel good. You may have to hear it to believe it, but it’s absolutely true, as the band’s swarms of loyal fans will not hesitate to tell you.”

“…one of the most passionate, soul-searching songwriters [Athens, GA] has seen since the band’s inception 15 years ago.”
— Flagpole Magazine | Athens, GA

“Five Eight has made perhaps the most consistent and satisfying rock record of the year.”
— Shane Harrison: Atlanta Journal Constitution (Atlanta, GA)

“Frontman Mike Mantione writes some of the most melodic, heatbreaking rock I’ve heard.”
— Robin Hilton: NPR

“Rock rarely gets more passionate — or real.”
— Charleston Post & Courier

“There’s some kinda weird consumptive Velvet Underground/Neil Young dissipated thing going on here that’s worth figuring out.”

“when it comes to the straightforward, hooky rock blast, the Foos [Fighters] are just about Five Eight’s only peers.”
— Shane Harrison | Atlanta Journal Constitution
