The Hosts Announce New Single 'September Song' Plus Spring 2013 UK Dates

Written on the 50th anniversary of Buddy Holly's death, The Hosts new Richard Hawley produced single 'September Song' is about a love affair with music and how a melody can transport you back to a time, a place and the autumn of a relationship. A nostalgia complimented perfectly by the b-side cover of Roy Orbison's 'In Dreams'.
The Hosts make a unique sound. Straddling the yesteryear romance of the aforementioned Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, in a hazy soundscape recalling Phil Spector, The Velvet Underground and The Beach Boys, layered with percussion and a sharp vocal delivery that has given way to comparisons to The Walkman and Jonathan Fire Eater.
Last year The Hosts released a 7" single via Fiction Records. The track received BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and XFM plays.

The Hosts have supported The Walkmen and Cold War Kids in the US plus supported Paul Weller on a UK arena tour including 3 sold out Brixton Academy dates.The Hosts have also played numerous one off shows with Richard Hawley and Cherry Ghost as well as appearing at the Barclays Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, Dot to Dot Festival, Belladrum Festival and CMJ Festival in New York. The latter showcase resulted in US radio plays with the notorious Denis The Menace playing the track on KUST San Francisco, closely followed by a spin on John Richards cult show on KEXP Seattle.
'September Song' will be released Worldwide on Monday 8th April on Not38 label.

The Hosts debut album - also with production from Mercury Music and recent Brit Award nominated Richard Hawley - follows later in 2013.

LIVE:
6th April: Sheffield Leadmill
11th April: London Wilmington Arms
12th April: Manchester Castle
