"The debut EP by Boston's MEDICATED KISSES combines staggering pop hooks with the most full-bodied, soulful female voice to hit "punk" rock since Beth Ditto. Scenesters will cry mallpunk, but fuck 'em: if you're the type of person with room in your life for a band that combines the best aspects of, say, Panic at the Disco and TLC, well, meet your your new favorite band. Singer Alanna V.'s fanclub already includes the Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer, who calls the band "ass-kicking" and "the real deal." We second those emotions, and bring to the floor a motion to declare the Kisses Boston's next big thing."
-Carly Carioli of The Boston Phoenix
"Set the name and image aside; Medicated Kisses aren't your typical female-fronted rock band. This Boston quintet completely blows the doors off of many unsigned and even quite a few signed bands with their aggressive rock 'n roll sound. Alanna, MK's frontwoman, has one of the deepest voices I've heard in contemporary rock. Is this lofty praise for an unsigned band? Of course, but it's well-deserved. Recommended: "A Wolf Among Lilacs"."
-Tony Pascarella, staff member of AbsolutePunk.net
"Way strong, much-needed female-fronted, ass-kicking, honest-to-god Rock Music. These kids are the Real Deal."
-Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls
"These guys have got it all - powerful, relevant rock and roll that is smart and young and sexy and as a bonus will change the way which women contribute on the musical scene. Somehow they combine the essence of music that we remember from our childhoods with what we hear on the radio today -it is really really good, and I am proud to be a part of it."
-Michael Birnbaum, producer of Coheed and Cambria/The Sleeping/Codeseven

Medicated Kisses is in the process of recording their debut album with Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner (Illair Productions) at Applehead Studios. Illaire has recorded all of Coheed and Cambria's releases, along with both of the The Sleeping's records, Codeseven, Bad Brains, King Crimson, Parliament Funkadelic, and many many more.
"Dark dance" is a term that manages to lasso the persuasive sound Medicated Kisses so passionately puts forth. Formed in 2005, the Boston band quickly fused their pop influences onto an already sturdy rock backbone, garnering comparisons to Coheed & Cambria with front-woman Alannas vocals akin to Christina Aguileras in range and strength. It was only fitting that in 2006 Medicated Kisses enlisted the expertise of producers Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner (Coheed & Cambria, Bad Brains, The Sleeping) to mold the band's distinct melodies into the tracks found on their debut self-titled EP (released April 2007). The restless five-piece has played over 200 shows since the band's inception, making for a veracious live experience that never fails to impress. As the band continues to grow at an exciting pace, we will listen and watch as Medicated Kisses' "dark dance" gets louder and brighter.
