Praise for Proud:

“Overall, if you like the Have Nots’ first album or records like “And Out Come the Wolves” or “The Suicide Machines,” buying this record is necessary for your life. They are a great punk rock band that will make you dance and mosh until you’re exhausted, bruised, battered, and covered in someone else’s beer.” – DyingScene (4/5)

“…the opening track finds John Cauztik wondering outloud if his dad would be proud with him after all the stuff he’s done. After listening to Proud from front to back, all I can say is yes, yes he would.” – ThePunkSite (4.5/5)

“It’s a crime this band hit the scene over a decade past when every kid with a bottle of Manic Panic and a chip on their shoulder would have been writing their lyrics on their backpacks in whiteout pens. However at least this record exists. Proud is a solid blast of intensely memorable punk rock that’s got plenty of hidden layers for listeners who are willing to look for them. Whether or not the modern Warped generation discovers them doesn’t matter. I’ll be dancing my brains out.” – The1stFive

“Whilst it’s not likely to lend itself to mind-bending bewilderment, it’s an album that in its simplest form sounds very good, and it’s hard to ask for much more than that. Have Nots join the genre’s long lineage but are remarkable enough to stand up tall and stand out.” – Punktastic.com
