The Burning Motels - Novels LP Drops Today!
Forged under the inspiration of post-punk and angular melodies, the Burning Hotels cut through modern rock with driving sounds and propulsive rhythms. The band made their recording debut with a self-released EP titled Eighty Five Mirrors, licensed by Razor & Tie. This EP won the Fort Worth Weekly’s Album of the Year and 3 of the Top 10 Songs of the Decade. Today, the Burning Hotels will release their debut full-length LP, Novels, mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Bloc Party).
The Burning Hotels was a mutual project of Chance Morgan (vocals, guitar), Matt Mooty (vocals, guitar) and Wyatt Adams (drums), as the three began forming their ideas in the attic of a garage on a desolate farm. Following the addition of Marley Whistler (bass), the Burning Hotels were finally christened as a working band. The group has all of the pieces for indie-rock stardom in place. Described by the FW Weekly as “One of town’s coolest bands period,” they create a driving sound, strongly founded on dark thoughts, dynamic rhythms, youth and, of course, the hipster look that’s all together.
