ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Combining post-punk inspirations and angular melodies, the Burning Hotels have 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, propulsive rhythms, youth, and, of course, the hipster look that’s all together.

The Burning Hotels is a mutual project of Chance Morgan (Vocals, Guitar), Matt Mooty (Vocals, Guitar) and Wyatt Adams (Drums), that began 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.

Building on furiously down stroked guitar rhythms, circular riffs and charging, impossibly crisp beats, the Hotels proudly wear their influences on their collective sleeve. Equally inspired by the attitude and riffs of Gang of Four, Wire and the Clash, the Burning Hotels were blessed with an enormous amount of buzz before they even played one show. Barely in their twenties by the time their self-released, debut EP, Eighty Five Mirrors, arrived in the spring of 2007, local success wasn’t exactly of the overnight variety, but it still arrived pretty swiftly.

The buzz that broke out before the Hotels’ first gig was not just hype. Bands twice the Hotels’ age aren’t nearly as tight or able. Thus, it’s no wonder, the foursome play with the heart and talent of bands twice their age. The word of mouth about the Burning Hotels\' incendiary live show propelled them to gigs at venues like the House of Blues, the Granada Theater, Stubb’s and the Beauty Bar.

The Burning Hotels\' local acclaim has grown to great proportions over the course of the year. The FW Weekly quickly became their champions, profiling them several times as they won over a devout North Texas following. And, since then, the Burning Hotels have won the FW Weekly’s Rock Album of the Year.
