About Saint Motel:

Elektra recording group Saint Motel have released today “THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK:  PART 1,” the first of a three-part album to be released over the coming months.  Release dates for Part 2 and Part 3 will be revealed at a later date.  “THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK:  PART 1” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

Co-produced by singer A/J Jackson and GRAMMY-winner Mark Needham, the five-song collection is highlighted by lead single “Van Horn”, whose companion music video is currently in pre-production.  In the meantime, visualizers for all five tracks are streaming now on the band’s YouTube channel.  Conceptually, “THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK” is modeled after a three-act movie, sometimes referred to as the “Hero’s Journey” storyline, manifested as three Parts - launching with today’s release of Part 1 - that eventually combine to form a single album. 

To herald the arrival of “THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK:  PART 1,” Saint Motel has announced details for their World headline tour.  Kicking off at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA, on January 24, the journey includes stops at Webster Hall in NYC (February 13), Vic Theatre in Chicago (February 27), and The Showbox in Seattle (March 3), before returning home for a two-night stand at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (March 7-8) – see full itinerary below.  Presale tickets are available starting today at 11am Local, with the general on-sale beginning this Friday, October 18 at 10am Local.  Special VIP packages – including a copy of the album, custom movie poster, and Saint Motel custom items as well as perks such as early entry, a photo with the band, and the opportunity to hear unreleased music – are also available.  For details about access to pre-sale tickets, VIP package options, tour updates, and more, please visit www.saintmotel.com/tour.

***Formed while attending film school in Southern California, Los Angeles-based Saint Motel’s kaleidoscopic sound and inventive live performances have earned them a loyal fanbase that flock to their headlining shows and standout sets at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo.  The band scored breakout success with their 2015 Elektra Records debut, “My Type” EP, whose title track was a top 10 hit at Alternative radio and RIAA-certified Gold.   The following year, Saint Motel returned with their much anticipated, full length “saintmotelevision,” featuring the smash single “Move.” Always on the cutting edge, Saint Motel subsequently released an award-winning Virtual Reality version of the album, followed by an Augmented Reality version – both firsts of their kind.  The band has taken their infectious performances to the small screen with nationally televised appearances on NBC’s TODAY, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden, among others.

Saint Motel is: A/J Jackson (vocals), Aaron Sharp (guitar), Dak Lerdamornpong (bass), and Greg Erwin (drums).
