"A heavy album from Columbia, MO. New Tongues' latest release, 'We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For', brings on lots of reverb, rock, and lots of instrumental parts - making it to just shy of the 40-minute benchmark. The three-piece has been playing for over a year, composed of musicians; Justin Nardy, (bass and vocals,) Mike Quinn (drums,) and Shane Johnson (guitar, vocals.) New Tongues pulls at the minimalist approach to making their compositions with many dynamic musical strains. They're interests in heavier rock, the band lays a lot of weight on the downbeats and not afraid to let a clean, whole note ring. The group has knack for pulling off steady, tight jams while still largely maintaining a loud, louder, and a very, very louder sound. Come check out the forms of more progressive, louder, noisier sounds of what stoner rock has had to offer. It's New Tongues' 'We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For.'" -Ray Jackson, Already Dead Tapes, 2013

"Perhaps the finest trick New Tongues have in their repertoire is their weird ability to be instantly evocative of several rock bands without ever sounding much like anyone. Sure, they lift a couple of riffs from Black Sabbath here and there but which heavy band worth their salt doesn’t? There’s a tasteful amount of reverb but it’s not really stoner or psychedelia, though there are little hints of both around the edges. There’s certainly an appreciation for the work of John Reis and Rick Froberg’s collaborations in bands such as Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes, though it’s significantly less busy than anything the San Diegan legends have committed to tape. Some of the dynamics are a touch reminiscent of long forgotten fellow Missourians Shiner, plus a nod or three to Chicago miscreants The Jesus Lizard. It’s such a hodgepodge of influences that for the most part the group defies easy categorisation. Most of their songs sound as though they are primarily constructed out of steel girders but there’s also a sly wink thrown in for good measures"
