“I’m not sure what stage of the game Me Like Bees is in, but their album The Ides is an indie album that stands out. With asymmetrical song structures that can abruptly go from bouncy and light, to slow and heavy and back again, the listener is rewarded with an experience that is anything but dull.” - The Music Ninja
“The first full-length release from these Joplin, Missouri rockers prominently features the band’s tornado-relief single, “Naked Trees,” a surprisingly delicate contemplation of what just happened and what do we do now. The answer is the rest of the record, a rambunctious and adventurous fight for community in a world of individual nightmares” -Dave Marsh / Rap Rock Confidential
“The entire The Ides album from Me Like Bees is whimsical in that all-American rock and roll sense of a Modest Mouse from Joplin, MO, but with hints of the goofiness of a Blind Melon” - Joel Frieders / SYFFAL
“To be honest my favourite performance of the night was openers Me Like Bees. As the support to NeverShoutNever, Bees gave the band a run for its money. As an indie/rock band out of Joplin, Missouri, they put on roots-driven performance that delighted the crowd. It was their first show outside of the US, which I’m sure is only the first of many to come.” - Lithium Magazine, Toronto Ontario.
