“American Catapult is a band that truly has the soul of the American landscape running through their veins... In an age where quality, accessible rock is difficult to uncover, perhaps the world needs more bands like American Catapult. The band is likely to resonate with a wide demographic and cross section of music lovers—and rightly so.”
“American Catapult is a good alt-country band giving you the past and present in the same chord progression; American Catapult knows its heroes, and is on the road seeking new ones to pass on.”
“Even with their limited distribution means, American Catapult's Trees of Mystery is an achievement many well known groups have yet to accomplish. In many ways, American Catapult is like a mysterious tree one might see on a road trip — weathered a bit from climate changes, but still able to bare some intensely delicious fruit.”
