‘Home, Like No Place Is There‘, the breakthrough album from Massachusetts band The Hotelier, released on Tiny Engines, has seen the band ride a wave of firsts and, corresponding to the music they create, pushed uncharted territories.
Amidst a relentless schedule in North America, there were maiden tours of U.K & Europe this year, and now in November and December, the band’s first ever tour of Australia.
The band’s guitarist Chris Hoffman says;
“From the first time I was in a band, the idea of going to Australia has always been, something for the most part, that has seemed unreachable. Now that it is happening, it’s a goal and achievement that feels a long time coming.“
Though the rise in their fan base on the other side of the world is unquestionable, it was an encounter with Melbourne’s The Smith Street Band at a festival in Germany that put the wheels in motion for a much anticipated Australian tour.
“When we were in Europe, we met the members of The Smith Street Band and it was their idea to make this all happen, so we have no idea what to expect when we go there.”
Part of a frontier of young bands challenging the status quo of punk rock in Modern Baseball, Title Fight, The World Is A Beautiful Place… and Beach Slang, The Hotelier have found themselves at the forefront of an emo-revival.
As the hype surrounding The Hotelier continues to grow, as does their international profile, the Australian tour will also serve a chance for fans to hear new music from the band as they have just completed tracking the follow up to ‘Home, Like No Place Is There‘.
Joining them on this jaunt through November / December will be Melbourne’s, Ceres.
