Hotel Lux have today shared ‘Vice’, their first new music since the release of their debut album ‘Hands Across The Creek’ earlier this year. Speaking to forebears such as Ian Dury and The Stranglers, ‘Vice’ reveals a more introspective side to Hotel Lux and is already a fan favourite from their live show.

Discussing the new track, the band have said: “”Vice had been a staple on the Lux set list since very early doors. Sadly, it never had its time to shine in a studio and we didn’t feel it quite sat with what we were trying to do with previous releases. At the latter stages of the ‘Hands Across the Creek’ sessions, we started bringing this rehashed version of the track back into the mix. We added a new intro, Lewis changed his vocal attack slightly and we played with the pacing of the track a little bit. Alas, it didn’t quite fit with our ambition of the album but we felt it a shame to allow the track to disappear into the abyss.”

To coincide with the release, Hotel Lux have also announced a number of European tour dates for this autumn; check them out below.
