Fresh off the announcement of The Hotel Year signing to Tiny Engines (Dikembe, State Lines, Run, Forever, Signals Midwest), the band is set to embark on a Winter Tour starting February 26th in Easthampton, MA. The band will finish up recording for their sophomore full-length before leaving for tour and Tiny Engines will release the new LP on 12″ vinyl in the Summer. The album will be the long-awaited follow up the band’s 2011 debut, It Never Goes Out, which is available for a name your price download HERE.
Residing somewhere loosely between pop/punk, indie rock and emo, The Hotel Year exude a certain charm and romanticism that exceeds their relatively young age. The band’s quirky style immediately brings to mind the geek rock heart and soul of Piebald and Harvey Danger while recalling the playfulness of The Promise Ring. Reminiscent in spirit with the confrontational poetry of The Weakerthans, The Hotel Year showcase a genuine maturity that pushes the band beyond genre stereotypes and firmly into their own stratosphere.
