"The EP Hotel War released earlier this year, Rebels Out of Time, provides a great snapshot of their musical direction. It captures their timeless rock and roll attitude perfectly. The opening lyrics even prove it, with Apwisch singing “I feel wild and crazy / I feel so amazing/ wild and young and wasted."
“Columbus’ soulful swamp-blues outfit Hotel War announced their own vitality last month with Rebels Out Of Time, a five-song EP of their strongest, most focused material yet. To arrive at a sound this hard-worn, you’d be right in assuming the band has weathered a few ups and downs along the road. Their bare bones beginnings are the stuff of true basement-rock lore.”
