Statement from the band:
We are ecstatic to announce that we have signed with LA based label, True Grit Records. We have always been a band focused on a keen work ethic and our pairing with the guys over at True Grit fits perfectly with their drive and dedication towards local music. They will be pressing our latest EP, Those Bruises on vinyl along with additional updates in the coming months. Head over to True Grit Records on Facebook and show them some love with a “like”. Our next show will be on December 6th at Aladdin Jr. in Pomona, CA. Thanks to everyone who supports us and keep spreading the word of The Motel Life. We are only getting started.
Statement from the label:
We are immensely proud to announce our first signing. As of last night, the True Grit Records family includes Ontario, California’s The Motel Life! Words cannot describe how excited we are to join up with such a talented, hard working band.
It’s been two years since The Motel Life ‘s debut full length, Retreat, came out to positive reviews. Much has changed since that release for this relatively young indie-rock band. Between sharing the stage with their idols in fun. and heading out on three self-funded tours, the band is back with their most ambitious material to date.
After playing hundreds of shows and going through some turbulent times, the band is a little older and a little wiser. With the release of Those Bruises, the most recent EP, The Motel Life is beginning the next stage as a band by sticking to the DIY ethics that made the group what it is today. Loaded with an ambition to make their music heard, the members of The Motel Life are set to take over the music scene.
Look for a special, limited vinyl release of their recent EP “Those Bruises” from us early next year as the beginning of an exciting partnership between True Grit and The Motel Life. For now, go check them out on their bandcamp (themotellife.bandcamp.com), give them a “like” at www.facebook.com/themotellife and catch them live at Aladdin Jr. in Pomona on 12/6!
Thanks for your support everyone, and keep an eye out for more soon!
