MA’s The Hotel Year sign with Mightier Than Sword Records

The Hotel Year Sign With Mightier Than Sword Records…it never goes out Available Digitally On October 11 Band Streaming ‘Our Lives Would Make A Sad, Boring Movie’ On Facebook

Dudley, MA, melodic punk rock 4-piece The Hotel Year has signed to Brooklyn, NY’s Mightier Than Sword Records. The label will reissue the band’s self released album ‘…It Never Goes Out’ digitally on October 11, along with new artwork. The Hotel Year jumps right into the spotlight with a hook filled record that is not just pop, not just punk, not just indie, but a well-balanced mix of all of the above. The diversity on the record is what makes it so enjoyable to listen to. With similarities to such beloved bands as Piebald and Hot Rod Circuit, The Hotel Year is poised to bring happiness to people’s ears. While the band’s knack for writing memorable melodies is the initial draw, their lyrics reveal a deeper social and personal consciousness that is a refreshing departure from much of the music of their peers. Mightier Than Sword president and head of A&R, R.J. Crowder-Schaefer says, “We are beyond excited to welcome The Hotel Year to the MTS family. The band is a perfect addition to our growing roster of young, talented and hard-working bands, and we’re excited for the world to hear their music. From the second I heard the band, I knew MTS had to be a part of what they’re doing, and honored the band wanted to work with the label.” The band is now streaming the lead track, ‘Our Lives Would Make A Sad, Boring Movie’ at www.facebook.com/pages/The-Hotel-Year/122102214502266?sk=app_178091127385.

Topshelf Records To Release Pianos Become The Teeth’s The Lack Long After On November 1st Band To Tour with Touché Amoré and Seahaven This Fall

Boston, MA indie Topshelf Records will release the new record from Baltimore, MD rock band Pianos Become The Teeth on November 1st. Titled ‘The Lack Long After’, the album was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations Studio, where the band’s previous effort Old Pride was recorded. Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Brimming with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, ‘The Lack Long After’ breathes new life into a once decaying scene. Cover art and track listing for ‘The Lack Long After’ will be revealed soon. Pianos Become The Teeth will be doing a full US tour this fall in support of their new record with Touché Amoré and Seahaven (w/ Circle Takes The Square playing a few select dates as well).
