Sun Hotel Begins Summer Tour, Preps Latest EP

Hey you, Johnny Stillincollege! Congrats on coasting by your junior year. I heard you just also just turned 21! You’re getting so old…Well, since I have you here, I just wanted to let you know that while you’re breezing through yet another summer at your parents’ pool supply store or your buddy’s dad’s accounting firm, the young men in Sun Hotel – busy students in their own right – are spending it on the road.

After a successful run along the Gulf Coast over Spring Break, the New Orleans-based rock n’ roll band is at it again, embarking on their biggest tour to date – covering the Eastern Seaboard, the Northeast, the Midwest and the Deep South at a feverish pace over the next twenty-nine days. When they finally return home in mid-June, they’ll be bearing Gifts, an EP now up for pre-order. Though “hard working” has always been the best way to describe the members of Sun Hotel (both collectively and in their individual capacities), it has never been as fitting as it will be in the summer of 2011.
