“In the last year we have all been taken over by The Heist of one man’s reign on music. Well, by the time Macklemore gets to the end of The Zoo at Night, he will be covering his “Battle Scars” because the title has just changed hands. These brothers may be from Michigan, but they are starting to bleed the Reign of the northwest. Seattle you are all about to be slaves to the Lizard King!”
“The Jesus Rehab, or more specifically brothers Jared and Dominic Cortese, have done something that all good bands do: By sounding like so many disparate sources, they end up sounding distinct. At the end of the day, it might be easy to just call this a rock record, but that’s just a cop-out. How about indiegarmetalcore?”
"The Jesus Rehab are a Seattle two-piece (brothers!) whose power melodies and driving pop are the perfect soundtrack to an all-night party where you a) get drunk and pick a fight with your best friends, b) continue drinking, but apologize profusely, c) end the night hugging and/or screaming "I LOVE YOU" to everyone you know, then d) wake up wearing nothing but your old Weezer shirt. Their new record, The Zoo At Night, focuses on issues such as, "mind-reading lizards, chubby 10-year-olds, and what its like to grow up in a world where no one is as they seem." Duh."
“With songs from Drunken Hillbilly Fight Bar in its pocket, The Jesus Rehab will look at home playing in front of a packed crowd determined to dance, or alone in the dark corner of a whisky-dive bar with a busted PA. And in either situation, The Jesus Rehab will sing and stomp until there’s nothing left but two brothers having a good time as Seattle’s most exclusive club.”
“Their new EP, Drunken Hillbilly Fight Bar is a beautifully crafted and stripped down (there’s just two of them now) project that frontman and mad genius Jared Cortese has been yearning to make. And it’s safe to say that he has nailed it with his own grunged out fuzz pop that is not only rare, but beautiful in it’s own right.”
