Travelodge Blocks The View

The Travelodge hotel chain has banned The View because group members trashed rooms during an overnight stop in Liverpool, according to The Daily Record.

"The View are banned from every Travelodge in the country.

"We don’t care who they are, they acted offensively and were anti-social to other residents. They are not welcome back," a Travelodge spokesman told the Scottish paper.

"This rock and roll behaviour is not acceptable. People come to us for a good night’s sleep and we have to be mindful of that."

The up-and-coming Dundee four-piece, highly touted by NME and already a hit with several of the European festival bookers who saw them at Eurosonic-Noorderslag on January 11th, are said to have damaged several rooms at the Liverpool Travelodge following a show in the city in November.

The Daily Record said hotel staffers were forced to break into the band’s room to turn off taps and stop a ceiling from caving in from flooding.

The damage report came out at about £7,000. Travelodge sent the bill to the band’s manager, along with a letter explaining that his charges are no longer welcome in any of the group’s 300 U.K. outlets.

The View – bassist Kieran Webster, lead guitarist Pete Reilly, lead singer Kyle Falconer, and drummer Steve Morrison – released its debut album, Hats Off To The Buskers, January 22nd.

The band has already produced two hits, "Superstar Tradesman" and "Wasted Little DJs." The latest single, "Same Jeans," climbed eight places to No. 3 in the U.K. singles chart published January 21st.
