"If there is anything that rock 'n' roll needs right now, it's bands that maintain that steady course to rock 'n' roll glory no matter what the obstacles, and ACIDIC has done just that with three albums and an electrifying live set that they have taken all over the country. The band's third album CREATURES is their most ambitious album to date with their natural hard-rock inclination melding flawlessly with electronic flourishes."

ABOUT ACIDIC AND THEIR NEW ALBUM, "CREATURES"
The hardest-working, hottest young rock band in Southern California - ACIDIC - is at it again! Their new album CREATURES features songs that have wowed the crowds at such recent major events as the 2014 Vans Warped Tour as well as their sold-out show at famed West Hollywood music venue, Doug Weston’s Troubadour. CREATURES is ACIDIC’s third collaboration with multi-platinum award-winning producer John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers), and the follow-up to previous albums, 2013’s “Copper Man” and 2011’s “Chronic Satisfaction".
2014 proved to be ACIDIC’s biggest year yet, full of inter-connecting triumphs. Their summer homecoming at L.A.’s landmark Troubadour was captured in an electrifying new video just added at over one hundred Hard Rock Cafes in sixty countries. Fans flocked to the Troubadour from four Warped Tour dates: Pomona, Ventura, Mesa, AZ, and Albuquerque, NM. ACIDIC’s performance on the Warped Tour's Hard Rock Kevin Says Stage at earned them their first mention in Billboard magazine. ACIDIC also scored as first-time tour headliners, with great accolades - “Best Wednesday night in a year” (Herman’s Hideaway, Denver); and “Best Monday night ever!" (Machinery Row, Great Falls MT).
Critical acclaim continues for ACIDIC for both their albums and live performances. BLUERAIL.com: “Frontman Michael Gossard is a force of nature, connecting to his audience and his band-mates in ways that make an ACIDIC show highly electrifying.” RUKUS magazine: “These guys aren’t afraid to rock out. Gossard can really wail with his vocal at times and the band is full of energy.” PERFORMER magazine: “Straight from the get-go, ACIDIC brings forth its frenetic energy and passionate sound in waves of indie alternative delight.” DallasObserver.com hailed Gossard as “gleefully demented”!
