"It should surprise no one when Painkiller Hotel is finally named a VH1 Artist of the Month" The Trades Magazine "Painkiller Hotel seems like a band that's ready to jump to the majors and start filling arenas and mugging for VH1 any minute" ALL MUSIC Magazine "On the dawn of their big break, they are prepared with radio-ready songs and experience" - The Beacon News "For the debut release, their record holds up stylistically, sonically, and song for song to anything you would hear on main stream radio today." - Suburban Nitelife Magazine "Drawing comparisons to 90's rockers Pearl Jam, Matchbox 20, Tonic, and Live with the sentimental songwriting style of John Mayer, it seems Painkiller Hotel has found it's niche in the music community. Performing a tiresome jam packed schedule of 100-120 tour dates a year over the last few years, the group comprised of bassist Adam Harker, guitarist Klaus Luchs, and drummer Jeff Kissel is putting on a live show that is a MUST SEE." - Suburban Nitelife Magazine "The songs are screaming for big-time attention" The Trades Magazine "With strong guitars and great vocals, Black Roses is an album that sticks with you. As one of the best albums of 2010, this album is a sign of good things to come in the music business" Lumino Magazine "Chicago rock quartet Painkiller Hotel, led by singer/guitarist Kevin Presbrey plays melodic mainstream rock of a sort that, when marketed well, often sells in the millions" ALL MUSIC Magazine.
