Riot Fest 2017 – Chicago, IL

Nine Inch Nails at Riot Fest 2017, by Omar Cordy/OJC PICS

Riot Fest was started a few years back in the grand spirit of the old school one-off festivals of lore. It was intended to be special from the get-go and they have done a reasonable job of sandwiching themselves into a busy summer of Lollapalooza, Chicago Open Air, and many other destination festival shows. Having a mix of alternative rock, metal, Hip-Hop, indie rock, and more has helped carve out its own niche, and between special performances, varied food and beer options, late-night after parties, and basically the cool factor Chicago offers as one of the best cities in America, it’s no wonder fans flocked to the event from all over the world.

The Hotelier Supporting La Dispute and Title Fight On Upcoming Shows

the hotelier

The Hotelier from Worcester, MA is releasing the physical version of their first proper physical release titled It Never Goes Out in Spring 2015 via Tiny Engines, after the digital versions was released in February 2014. Stream the album here.

Before they made a splash in 2014 with their sophomore release, Home, Like Noplace Is There, the band (as The Hotel Year) quietly released their cult classic debut full-length, It Never Goes Out, in 2011. The album was unfortunately kept in label limbo in regards to a proper physical release but the time has finally come to right that wrong. Tiny Engines will release It Never Goes Out on LP/CD with all new artwork in the Spring of 2015. A year after Home, Like Noplace Is There cemented the band, revisit where it all started with It Never Goes Out.

The Hotelier will be heading out in the US with Title Fight and La Dispute in March and will head to Europe in May with festival appearances scheduled at Groezrock & Primavera Sound. The band continues to support their critically-acclaimed sophomore LP, Home, Like Noplace Is There.
