Hospitality announce European tour dates

Hospitality announce European tour dates:

With their brand new album Trouble due out on 27 January in Europe on Fire Records, Hospitality are delighted to announce their first ever European Tour which will take place throughout the month of May 2014.

The band have built up a formidable live reputation from constant touring in the US, sharing the stage with the likes of Eleanor Friedberger, Wild Flag, The Love Language, Here We Go Magic, and Tennis. With festival appearances at 4Knots, SXSW, Roskilde, and Sasquatch!, Hospitality reached its first apex with many more heights to come. From their modest debut in a Brooklyn row house, the band has evolved from four-track low-fidelity to a luxury five-star future.

Trouble follows their glowing 2012 debut with a darker, richer collection of eclectic avant pop. Taking unexpected yet satisfying turns, the new album sees the band offer up a moodier palette, with more instances of space and silence, looser arrangements and more open production.

"Sweet at the core but pleasantly dark around the edges." Uncut

"Like Sleater-Kinney reimagined for synth-pop teens." Mojo

"takes a different direction from what was heard on the debut, embracing dark, dour synths and vocalist Amber Papini's slightly growling lower register." Pitchfork

“Papini’s lyrics are witty, and if you let her songs—which range from toe-tapping power pop to amped-up folk—into your head, they’ll stay there.” —The New Yorker
