‘If Thor was the hero in an apocalyptic action movie, Hotel Wrecking City Traders would be his entrance music’ - Ash Easton (Blunt Magazine, Australia)

‘This is earthquake-heavy stuff that fans of early Floor and the old Bovine Records band Thug have been waiting for’ - Adam Wright-Carmean (Crucial Blast Records, USA)

‘Continents collide! Oz's Hotel Wrecking City Traders and Gary Arce of Californian desert legends Yawning Man reach across the Pacific to combine noise rock crunch with psych guitar bliss.’ - H.P Taskmaster (The Obelisk, USA)

Hotel Wrecking City Traders (HWCT) have been dislodging earwax, busting strings and sticks and blowing minds since 2007. HWCT are an instrumental noise rock duo with a heavy focus on improvisation and a love of loud volume and the psychedelic. The band has to date released an EP (2007) a full length album ‘Black Yolk’ (2008) and a 7 Inch ‘Somer/Wantok’ (2009), all through Bro Fidelity Records (Australia). HWCT’s latest is a collaborative effort - featuring Gary Arce (Yawning Man/Ten East). An offer from Gary that eventuated from HWCT supporting Ten East on tour in Australia in 2009. This will be a strictly limited vinyl pressing (300 copies) which is due for release in May, 2011 and distributed by Cobraside Distribution in the USA. With a constant touring regime forever in place the band’s presence has grown both in Australia and overseas which has seen them tour with the likes of: Thrones (USA), Ten East (USA), Earthless (USA), Om (USA), Black Cobra (USA), Monarch (Fr), Grey Daturas (Aust), Winnebago Deal (UK), The Hard-Ons (Aust), to name but a few…
Ben Wrecker also joined Winnebago Deal (UK) on drums as a last minute stand-in on their debut tour of Australia in 2008 . Ben was also personally invited to play drums by Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) in his Mondo Generator project in 2010 for a US tour. Hotel Wrecking City Traders are heading to Japan this November.
