West End Motel 7" are here...

After much hemming and hawing and several go-arounds with faulty test pressings coming down the pike, Ponce de Leon Records is proud to offer the new West End Motel 7 EP."

West End Motel features guitarist Brent Hinds (Mastodon, Fiend Without A Face) and vocalist Tom Cheshire (All Night Drug Prowling Wolves, Rent Boys, Kidd Boom Boom, Indigo Boys) playing sparse and love-damaged acoustic country songs that fall in line with the low and lonesome likes of Gram Parsons, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Buck Owens. Their songs are sad and infinitely compelling; earnest and driven by desire, regret, loathing, catharsis, self-destruction and repair.

The songs on this four-song EP were penned by Hinds and Cheshire circa 2005 and were recorded by every bands' favorite sound man, Curt Wells.

Records are now available in the better local record stores, or are available directly from Ponce for $5 (postage paid). A limited edition of 100 copies were pressed on white vinyl, but they're going fast. If you want one, please get your order in with us ASAP.

On Friday, June 13th West End Motel will celebrate the official record release party for their debut 7" EP on Ponce. The show will be at The Highland Inn Ballroom. Show starts at 9:30 p.m. It's $5 at the door.

Records will be available at the show, but if you would like to order a copy directly from the label, just click on the shopping cart button below.
