about

"Call Me Lightning doesn’t scale down stadium-rock; it squeezes all that bigness and velocity into tiny basements until the roof disappears in a swirling mushroom cloud. It’s incredible that anything—much less the record-label problems that delayed the album’s release for nearly a year—could keep When I Am Gone from running into the streets and murdering innocents with its bare hands before now." -Steven Hyden, The Onion

"Based on the wild art-punk of Call Me Lightning's earliest releases, nobody could have predicted the mighty rock band the group would evolve into. The power-trio's new album, WHEN I AM GONE MY BLOOD WILL BE FREE, is their best yet, a fierce and sweaty homage to The Who's howling rock operas, telling epic tales about ordinary men summoned for greatness in true Pete Townshend fashion. It's an arena-rock record for the basement-show circuit" -The Shepherd Express

"...somewhere between the Who's melodies and the Jesus Lizard's bass-laden instrumental onslaught, with a little Lungfish swimming in the ether." -Jessica Steinhoff, The Isthmus
