Biography

Brothers Jared and Dominic Cortese consciously construct songs that are gritty, raw, and honest.  Their live shows are athletic events as the two brothers feed off of each other's energy, dancing and singing along with their fans without reserve. The brothers current goal is to jump into a sea of screaming maniacs, and they continue to make records that inspire madness in their audience, hoping to make this dream come true.

The Jesus Rehab's sound showcases powerful vocals and driving rhythms that have been compared favorably to Jeff The Brotherhood, The Kills, and most often Weezer.

In the last two years, theyve rocked their way through Seattle with gigs at mainstays including The Tractor Tavern, and Columbia City Theater. They have also toured the West Coast multiple times, played shows at SXSW in Austin, TX (2011 and 2012), Noise For The Needy, and the Big Ass Boom Box Festival in Portland, OR.  This past year, The Jesus Rehab toured the Midwest, East Coast, and select cities down the West Coast.  They are releasing a new record in the Spring 2014, called "The Zoo At Night", and plan to tour extensively including stops throughout the western United States in March 2014, including a return to SXSW.  This will be the band's third official release, and first LP since 2010.

Lyrics

1 Foot On The Floor (Scatterbrained 2007)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

I can't let this feeling go
I won't allow it to lose control
I like the morning
Unless I'm kneeling
Ahhhhhhhh

Got a little bit of life left in me
A little A little bit of life in me
All the things I've left to see
I can't give in yet

I put one foot down on the floor
Didn't mean to start a holy war
I like the morning
Stare at the ceiling
Ahhhhhh

Got a little bit of life left in me
A little A little bit of life in me
All the things I've left to see
I can't give in yet

Get up
Get up
Ahhhhh
Get up
Get up
Ahhhhh

Got a little bit of life left in me
A little A little bit of life in me
All the things I've left to see
I can't give in yet

Get up Get up Get up Get up Get up

If It Feels Good It Is Good (THH&TLL 2010)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

I'm on the up side
I got you begging me please
And when you're up high
I'll push you down on your knees

You're fallin'
You're fallin'
You're fallin'
On your own

It's just a stripped, down, attitude
It's a big mistake
But it feels so good
So it must be good

And when you're up high
And you've got nothing to lose
You try and fake it
But it just feels so damn good

Breathin' in
Breathin' out
Got it all
Figured out

It's just a stripped, down, attitude
It's a big mistake
But it feels so good
So it must be good

She'll take your money
She'll take your money
She'll take your money
And run nah nah nah

It isn't easy
It won't be easy
There's still so much to be done
Ohhhhh

If we try
We could get by
Although your hands
Are tied and bound

It's just a stripped, down, attitude
It's a big mistake
But it feels so good
So it must be good

Seattle (THH&TLL 2010)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

Maybe
We don't have that much in common
Maybe
You were sad cause I was selfish
I don't know
But I know
It hurts like hell

It wasn't what it was
Like it was
In Seattle
It wasn't what it was
And it doesn't even matter
I don't know
But its cold
And it hurts like hell

Repeat

It wasn't what it was like it was in Seattle

Repeat

It's all about
What you're doin'
What you did
Who ya done
What you done
Why'd ya do it
It's all about

Repeat

It wasn't what it was
Like it was
in Seattle
It wasn't what it was
And it doesn't even matter
I don't know
But it's cold
And it hurts like hell

Show Me The Door (Scatterbrained 2007)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

Sit, stand, wait in line
Second guessing
What's become of me
Where, when, why
Where's it gonna lead me to
The arms of love
The fate I dream again
Each time I close my eyes
Can't get around it, get around it, oh

Show me the door
Show me the door
Step out of line
And take a stand
And give me some space
And you'll find
You'll find
Yeah you'll find
What you're looking for

Senses come alive
When you strip yourself
From watching your tv
Assembly lines
Of people here for me
It sounds like traffic lines
And talks about
The madness that we see
And taste each bite before
You chew and swallow,
chew and swallow
Chew and swallow

Where did I go
Where didn't I go
Just point your finger
And pick a spot
It's time to remain
And you'll find
You'll find
You'll find what your looking for

People up above us
Commenting on what they see
They'll shout at us and judge us
Blind to what we need
So fucking waste your time
Cause life is just a story line deep
Those things seem crazy
Only if you are crazy like me
Ohhhhhhh

Death To Fredd (Scatterbrained 2007)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

He had no money
He had no sense in his brain
He wasn't funny
But that didn't get in his way
He was a blind receiver
On a wall of shame
But all the people joined in
Cause they liked how he swayed
And he swayed like this

Hey

In a moment
You can catch it
Should we chance it
Cause you can never go back

A master weaver
He pants like a dog
Kickin'n shakin'n movin' his legs
To beats in the fog
He had his whole life
He had it on a stick
A bubble bath
Pass me a comb
Repeat it all twice
If you want us all to sing sing'n

Hey

In a moment
You can catch it
Should we chance it
Cause you can never go back

The Highest Highs & The Lowest Lows (THH&TLL 2010)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

Things come and go
There's up and there's downs
There's highs and there's lows
Once hot now cold
Sometimes you just gotta let it go

You get a taste then you spit me out
My colors flowin' out of your mouth
I tried so hard but I'm just one man
You put me in my place
And you tied up my hands
My hands my hands
They've got a mind of their own
Sometimes you just gotta let it....

Let it out
Let it go
Turn away
Or just let it show
I get strength
From my silence
No more talking
No more violence no....

I feel pain
I feel broke
I feel scared
Cause I know
Just a word's
All it takes
To bring me back to the place
Where my vision is blurred
And I become nervous
My inner most wounds
They rise to the surface
You push and you poke them
But you hurt when I feel them
And I wouldn't want you any other way...

And there's somethings out there
That we don't understand
In front of God and everyone
I'm naked

Let it out
Let it go
Turn away
Or just let it show
And these moments that matter
They keep me off balance
Without them I long for the romance
Of it all

Memories Are Better Than Photographs (THH&TLL 2010)

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

Just 'cause we can
It doesn't mean we should
But we just might
But we just might

Yeah I miss you
Oh I miss you
In case you didn't know
Well it's only been a little while
But God it been so long

Just 'cause we can
It doesn't mean we should
But we just might
But we just might

It was good
A smooth refreshing start
Not like the ones that make your stomach sour
Poisoning your heart
And I refuse to blame the alcohol
I refuse to admit
No it wasn't just the alcohol
So don't you cheapen this

'Cause you were weird
So naturally
And I was weird
So naturally
And in our sleep
Our body heat
Melted you
Into me
Ohhhhhhh!!

Ohhhhhhh!!

Just cause we can
It doesn't mean we should
But we just might
Because we want to

And you said
Why
Why
Why
Why
You said why
Because I want to

No More Tears (For Me)[Single]

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

In my life
There've been moments
That I've cried

I can't take you home with me
I can't take them along with me
Believe me it is agony
But I'll keep going on smiling

Well I put my foot down
I put up a fight
Said it wasn't right
No more sighs and sorry's
Gonna let em fall
Cause I'm just lookin out for ol number one

No more tears for me

Would you remind me why
I left the warmth of home
And all the things that shaped my life

I can't take them along with me
Believe me it is agony
But I'll keep going on smiling

It's time I put my foot out the door
To strip myself of what I was before

No more tears for me

Carry You

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

Your heart
Is sweet 
You swept me 
Off my feet
Its nice to have met you
Finally

I want to carry you X 2

And as things
Unfold
We've begun to 
Speak in secret codes
When nobody knows
You still know what I mean
Connectin' the dots 
With bright sun beams

I want to carry you X 2

I've walked a long long road
And felt so completely no where
My world was always just beyond
Then you reminded me how to cry
Like when we were babies
Oh girl you made a man out of me

Do do do

Someday 
You and me
We'll have a family
And a house with a dog
Where we'll sing all our songs
La di da La di da La di da La di da

I want to carry you X 3

Night Terrors

Written By: The Jesus Rehab

We come like troubadours
We take what we need
We'll travel all our lives
Through land and air and sea

In the middle of the night I was up and
I was startled by my life and I was petrified
All the creatures of the night they were up and
They were wondering why I'm still hiding

We'll walk through streets of stone
Well come on come on we'll find
A forest all our own
Well come on have you lost your mind

In the middle of the night I was up and
I was startled by my life and I was petrified
All the creatures of the night they were up and
They were wondering why I'm still hiding

We come like troubadours...
And we'll take all we need

In the middle of the night I was up and
I was startled by my life and I was petrified
All the creatures of the night they were up and
They were wondering why I'm still hiding
There were babies
They were crying
Adults screaming like they're gonna start fighting
In the middle of the night I was up and
And the silence
And the silence

Set List

We can play up to 3 hours of music,  and we are willing to play more or less if needed. We normally play all originals, but have been known to throw in a cover here and there. We normally play high energy electric sets, but we can tone it down for a chill setting like a coffee shop or record store. We are a duo, but with the wonders of technology we can make a big noise.

All of our current recordings can be heard @ www.thejesusrehab.bandcamp.com
