Hospitality will embark on a month-long national tour, armed with copies of their new full-length Trouble, out January 28th.
Trouble unfolds like a walk on the beach or a journey to a place you didnt know you were going. Perhaps a darker sound overall, but Trouble begins with the trademark Hospitality pop then unfurls to reward the listener with the more expansive stripped-down instrumentation of side B. If you listen closely, you can hear a band pushing against their own boundaries and limitations until they find the very air around them subtly but perceptibly changed.
Fans can get a taste of the album with the stream of I Miss Your Bones, a sprawling epic that finds singer Amber Papini mourning everlasting loss with such sad lines as, All the stars will twinkle in the midst of a sea/ Black and lonely. Behind her, the band builds from a sparse power-pop stomp to a noisy, psychedelic freak-out.
