Chance Morgan and Matt Mooty met each in the 4th grade. They’ve been best friends ever since. “Since the beginning, we’ve made every decision together. I remember being in high school and trying to decide whether to play basketball, to play in the school band or something else entirely. And then we heard ‘Return The Gift’ by Gang of Four and that changed everything. So we decided to start The Burning Hotels instead.” “I think we set out to start a band that sounded like Gang of Four,” explains the band. “And while we are proud to wear our influences on our sleeves, I don’t think we necessarily ended up sounding like Gang of Four per se. Instead, we’re really content with what we found. We’re not over thinking this. We just want to write something that someone cares enough to listen to.” The Burning Hotels have a sound that pulls together years of obvious influence by the post-punk revival along with a sudden obsession with the ‘80s new romantic movement. It’s a combination of styles that goes hand in hand and that the band ultimately pegged as Sex Punk. With everything in place, now The Burning Hotels just want to be The Burning Hotels. The band’s hometown awarded the band and their most recent release with several local awards including Rock Album of The Year (Novels, 2010), Rock Song of the Year (Austin’s Birthday, 2010), Rock Act of the Year (2010) via the fort Worth Weekly. The band is currently writing for an early 2011 release.
