In the summer of 2011, the band released a self-titled 5 song EP. The record was listed among Cincinnati City Beat's Top Local CDs released in 2011. In the fall of 2012, the Sound Images studio in Cincinnati was overflowing with creativity leading to the recent release of the full length album Extinction. The record has been aired by various local and internet radio stations and programs. The album was also listed as a top 2012 release by City Beat and has received rave reviews. Extinction has launched the band to shows at top venues and festivals.
"With a mix of Modern Alt Rock and some vintage Rock & Roll undertones, Extinction has a crisp, big sound that showcases the excellent vocal work of Curtis Dressman. The songs are creatively constructed and have a Pop element (and occasional New Wave synth quirk) that would make them a perfect fit for the playlists of most big “Alternative Rock” radio stations, but the songs are never pandering. There’s some great guitar work on Extinction, as well, bringing to mind a mix of Chevelle and Kings of Leon. It’s well-crafted, pleasurable Arena Rock without all the pomp and circumstance and points to even greater things in Big Rock Club’s future. "(bigrockclub.com) CityBeat Cincinnati - Mike Breen
