Manic Kat Records President Peter James says, “We here at Manic Kat Records are extremely excited to welcome Right On, Kid! to the MKR family. As our label grows and evolves, it is refreshing to continue to find bands that embody our vision for the future. Signings like this reinforce our love of music and are the reason we do what we do. Keep an eye out as we plan the release of their debut EP, Forever Missing Out, and first major tour this May, and you’ll see what we mean…”
Right On, Kid lead singer Zach Rose says, “All of us in ROK are so grateful to be a part of the Manic Kat family. Their team is filled with hard working and talented individuals that are going to push us to be the best that we can be. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. So be sure to catch us in a city near you!”
“Influence from bands like I Call Fives and Forever Came Calling are abundant, but there’s something about the way Right On, Kid! is able to channel them that makes it feel fresh. The track is the kind of scathing and disapproving track that feels primed-and-ready for packed and sweaty venues full of rowdy kids and crowd-surfing.”– Substream Magazine
