The Billboard
The Felix Culpa (loosely translated, "the fortunate fall") have been cranking out critically-acclaimed progressive indie rock since 2002. With Alternative Press touting them as one of the "100 Bands You Should Know," and honoring them with "One Of The Top Ten Songs Over Ten Minutes, Ever" ('I'm Still Learning" off of the Commitment LP), you might think all of the success would go to their heads. Instead, in 2009 the band pulled a Radiohead and released their SoSoRemission EP with the option to either buy it or download it for free.

Now, as we prepare to usher in a new decade, The Felix Culpa have opted to mark the occasion with a new full-length album entitled Sever Your Roots.


PRESS - SEVER YOUR ROOTS, self released 2010

Alternative Press - 4.5/5 stars
An early contender for best album of 2010. Don't sleep on it.
Issue 260, March 2010

Sever Your Roots has that "no one is making music like this anymore" impact.
...a bona fide post-hardcore epic... the album runs the gamut in terms of textures.
Above all, there's this overarching aura of importance emanating from just about all of it, commanding your attention and demanding that you take heed... (Sever Your Roots) is an example of near perfect execution.

The Felix Culpa have done it again, and if this isnít enough to push them into the limelight, Iím not sure what will be. Call them stunning, call them amazing, call them refreshing, but at the end of the day, The Felix Culpa are something original.

Alter The Press! - 5/5 stars
This album is packed full of those hair standing on end moments... so please if you're into dynamic and ambient post-hardcore you have to check this album out!

Independent Clauses -
Sever Your Roots is the pinnacle of musicianship, lyricism and songwriting to this point in post-hardcore... every second is packed with rhythms, riffs, melodies, lyrics, poetry, and passion. There is zero filler. And on a sixty-eight minute album, thatís absolutely unheard of. If you like anything even resembling rock, emo, post-hardcore, or hardcore, you need this album. It is that simple.

Drive Wayfarer Drive -
(Sever Your Roots) has come out of nowhere as the first breakout record of 2010... the type of album that could finally cement The Felix Culpa as one of the great post-hardcore bands of the last few years.

Reviewsic -
...the simultaneous variety and cohesion between these songs is impeccable. Thereís a new kind of assertion behind the vocals, a power that accompanies Hladishís voice as it cracks and shifts, showing fault without seeming weak.

Travis Faulk - 4.5/5
(The Felix Culpa) are not going to disappoint you. In all this is an amazing album. You really need to check it out.
