After two years of touring and supporting Summer House, GOLD MOTEL began pre-production for their new album in Los Angeles, CA, splitting their time between rehearsals in a house up in the hills of Laurel Canyon and a pool-house in Glendale. Those early pre-production sessions led to the initial material that would make up their self-titled sophomore album, Gold Motel. The band continued pre-production back in Chicago and began preliminary recording in September of 2011 in guitarist Dan Duzsynski’s home-studio, DandySounds Studios. Like Summer House and Talking Fiction, Gold Motel was self-produced by the band.
In contrast to Summer House, Gold Motel showcases a significant growth and evolution in the band’s songwriting and tonality as they continue to explore new musical territory centered on themes of youth, memories, and nostalgia. However, in comparison to their previous releases, Gold Motel still captures the band’s renowned pop sensibilities and illustrious West Coast sound.
GOLD MOTEL’s new self-titled album is due out July 3rd, 2012 on Good as Gold Records/Thirty Tigers.
