The Hotelier announce US tour

The Hotelier have announced a run of US dates with Runaway Brother, Oso Oso and Spirit Of The Beehive this October, following on from their previously announced tours with The Get Up Kids and Beach Slang.


The band are currently in the studio (and occasionally periscoping their endeavours) working on the followup to 2014’s ‘Home, Like NoPlace Is There’.

Speaking to Christian Holden during their UK tour, he explained that “The voice that’s going to be used on the next album isn’t the voice that was used on ‘Home, Like Noplace Is There’. I’m a constantly changing person, constantly trying to think of how I can write like I talk. I’m actively working on building myself up at all times. Every time I think ‘this is who I am’, I don’t like it anymore so I try something else.

“I want the next album to be good,” he ventures. “If I released a bad album, I’d feel bad. At the same time, if people didn’t react well to this thing that I’ve put six years of my life into – didn’t go to college because of – it would be the end of it growing, and I’ve been really excited to see things grow,” he continues with a sudden sense of vulnerability. “I don’t want this to become a thing where I feel like I’m not super passionate about putting my whole self into.”

“We got a bunch of songs written. I’ve got a whole – not concept – but a flavor laid out. We’re going to record in a couple of months and hopefully it’ll be done soon,” he teases. And the flavour for The Hotelier’s third album? “It’s brighter.”
