What others have said about DAYTRADER:
“Initially conceived as a collaborative effort between bassist Gary Cioni (ex-Crime In Stereo) and drummer Pat Schramm (Bridge And Tunnel, ex-Latterman), Daytrader drip with enthusiasm for an era of punk not long gone from the minds of these two dudes… Sounds like five guys trying to recreate something pure, fast and enjoyable from their youth—and totally succeeding.“- Alternative Press
“Dismantle pop-punk’s funeral. Tell the eulogy singer that his work here is done and send the pallbearers on their way. Yes, 2011’s Last Days of Rome is here, and pop-punk is alive and well as ever.”- SputnikMusic
