“SOUTHSIDE ON THE TOWN "This reviewer was literally blown away by the band's guitar rhythms and riffs pounding her ears. You could feel the excitement and electricity surging from this band's unique country/alternative/rock combination that will get your feet moving."”
Southside from Fearless Radio Chicago
““…riffs that check everything from Guns N' Roses to Led Zeppelin in Stooges-styled distortion…Philpot ensures rock isn't dead”
“Dig It: The classicism of The Beatles, Doors and Led Zeppelin and the neo-classicism of Blur, R.E.M. and Oasis.”
Cincinnati City Paper
“HOTT BAND OF THE WEEK: “…aggressive but thoughtful rock. Young and full of great ideas.””
““These guys are years beyond their age in talent.””
— Ear Candy
““Hate Writes Better Than Love" is an uncommon release in a sea of excessively common releases. Being able to mesh melodies from the ‘60s with hard rock from today isn’t typically the recipe for success, but then Philpot isn’t your typical band. Good show.””
““…tight chops, fresh and memorable melodies and choruses, never guilty of rehashing their predecessors.””
““This Nation’s Son” – Political Song of the Week”
— JSI Top 21
"…go ahead and knock yourself out on this one!”
— Metal Rage
"I have jock ear. I feel like I did when I encountered Freddy Mercury or The Beatles."

"…Philpot could be the next “it” rock band.”
— Third Coast, Chicago
"rocking, bluesy, and emotive music. Songs that hit squarely in the sweet spot. Sounding like a cross between Liam Gallagher and Kurt Cobain, Ward invests his soul and makes every note of these songs count."
"These kids play kick ass rock and roll with a technical virtuosity that is nothing short of astounding. Kentz Ward is the most charismatic frontman since Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain."
“On Hate Writes Better Than Love, the young Indiana band Philpot muscle through full-bore, no-frills, gut-punch rock, full of snarling guitars and singer Kentz Ward's raspy, classic rock howl.”
All Music Guide
"These Indiana-bred rockers play as if the '70s and 80s never happened - a bridge between Led Zeppelin and Pearl Jam, and yet most of the band was barely walking when Cobain died, let alone Bonham."
