Early reviews are praising Badflower, who collectively co-wrote all of the tracks on the album:
“Unsentimental, chilling, evocative, and real…” – iHeart Radio News
““OK, I’M SICK is a collective, bold statement for the band that cries out, “We’re just getting started, and we aren’t going anywhere!” You will be heavily impressed by the debut, high-energy album: there is enough diversity in the tracks yet the record consistently flows with the overall sound. The stories and confessions hold the listener captive, and will make each person want to unleash any best kept monsters and purge all sins..” (5 out of 5 stars)
– Cryptic Rock
“OK, I’M SICK fits in perfectly in today’s rock scene. From start to finish, the album takes you on an emotional ride jumping from hit to hit. The strong percussion presence partnered with hard guitar sounds place them at the top of the game. I am confident you’ll be hearing their name in the future of rock music.”
(5 out of 5 stars) – Substream
“[debut album] OK, I’M SICK is definitely a promising start…well-crafted, glossy angst” – Newsday
“OK, I’m Sick is an intensely emotional and jarring journey of riff-filled, primal hard rock and a blatantly 21stcentury rock record covering a range of topics more modern than the average top 40 charts can handle and doing so with an unnerving honesty and vulnerability.” – High Voltage Magazine
“Smooth vocals combined with a heartbreaking message of lost love and youth make for another strong single from Badflower’s upcoming album, OK, I’M SICK.” – Alternative Press
“Good, old-fashioned rock n’ roll may have just made a modern comeback.” – NYLON
“Badflower is one of those bands you listen to and immediately know they should be huge with their pure-rock sound and riff-driven tracks.” – Radio.com
Nominated for an iHeart Radio Award for Best New Rock / Alternative Artist, Loudwire has proclaimed “Badflower could be one of rock’s next biggest bands.” Their lead single “Ghost” hit No. 1 at Active Rock and Forbes declared “’Ghost’ has connected at the absolute core of where music hits fans.” Landing at No. 7 on Billboard’s 2018 Year-End Mainstream Rock Songs Chart, the band recently performed a stripped down version of the song, along with current single “Heroin” for fans on Billboard Live.

The rising hitmakers also debuted this week a live video for current single “Heroin” which is Top 15 and rising at Rock Radio. Filmed in Nashville, the moving black and white video is the perfect companion to the powerful single about the highs and lows of a toxic relationship.
