Elektra recording group Saint Motel have shared their brand new single entitled “Preach” today. Available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE, the track appears on the band’s forthcoming THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK: PART 2, which is due out later this year and serves as the second installment of their three-part album, THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. Keep on the lookout for the official music video for “Preach,” which is currently in pre-production.
Remaining on the cutting edge of innovation, Saint Motel make history as “the first band to open their own virtual world” powered by Mozilla Hubs. The quartet’s “New World” welcomes fans into a 3D VR chatroom enabled for all headsets and browsers. In this space, audiences can enter an exclusive, immersive environment to engage directly with the band through virtual meet-and-greets and intimate, live performances, consume exclusive video content, and much more. Additionally, it doubles as a space for fans to congregate and get to know each other as well. Saint Motel’s “New World” is in its final stages of development and set to launch imminently, upholding what has become a tradition of engaging with groundbreaking technology for the guys. In 2016, they dropped their Elektra full length debut saintmotelevision as the first-ever Virtual Reality album and first-ever Augmented Reality album and accompanied the record with the free Saintmotelevision app.
PART 1 was heralded by the infectious lead single “Van Horn.” Known for their cinematic aesthetic, the band brought the western-themed official music video for track – directed by Saint Motel frontman A/J Jackson – to life with an inventive performance on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!. Earlier this year, the band sold out their entire North American headline tour in support of PART 1, culminating with hometown finale in Los Angeles, days before the country went into quarantine due to Covid-19.
In recent months, Saint Motel has made a concerted effort to mobilize their fans to join them on a pair of philanthropic causes through special, limited edition merchandise. With blood donations needed now more than ever, the band has partnered with The American Red Cross to offer a “Just My Blood Type” enamel pin, available for free to those who donate blood. Named for their breakout hit “Just My Type, the pins are also available for purchase with 100% of net profits going to The American Red Cross. Likewise, Saint Motel has joined with the National Independent Venue Association’s #SaveOurStages campaign to ask Congress to provide aid to their network of nearly 2,000 independent live music venues across the country – many of which the band has performed in – that have been 100% shut down with zero revenue due to the pandemic. All profits from a special “Saint Motel X Save Our Stages” tour t-shirt will go directly to NIVA’s efforts. Both items are available in the Saint Motel Gift Shop.
Stay tuned for more from Saint Motel soon.

Projecting pop hooks through an alternative lens with a flair for dramatic presentation, Saint Motel make music worthy of the big screen. Streamed and viewed over half-a-billion times, the gold-selling Los Angeles quartet magnify this vision with immersive live experiences and one unpredictable move after another. The group initially came together at film school before introducing themselves on 2012’s Voyeur. Signing to Elektra Records, their 2014 My Type EP boasted both the gold-certified title track “My Type” and fan favorite “Cold Cold Man.” In 2016, saintmotelvision yielded the smash “Move.” Flipping the script once again, the musicians reimagined the record with a series of history-making first-of-their-kind innovations: an award-winning Virtual Reality version and an Augmented Reality version. In 2019, Saint Motel launched their most ambitious undertaking yet, unveiling their third full-length album in three parts. First up, they uncovered THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK: PART 1 powered by the shimmy and shake of Alternative Top 15 lead single “Van Horn.” Between packing houses coast to coast on headline jaunts and earning acclaim from People, Billboard, and more, the four-piece plotted to roll out PART 2 and PART 3 throughout 2020. In addition to unforgettable sets everywhere from Coachella and Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo, the boys lit up shows such as 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).
