Saint Motel was born around 2009, by film school classmates and long time friends Jackson and Sharp. Initially the two bonded over their shared love of music, like Imperial Teen and Beethoven's 7th Symphony, 2nd Movement, and their appreciation of obscurist cinema. After bringing Lerdamornpong and Erwin into the fold, the band released their debut EP ForPlay in 2009 and put their visually oriented talents to use by adding a certain element of spectacle to each performance. "We played in half-pipes, semi-trucks, circus', pretty much anywhere we could. We created our own bizarre brand of experiential concerts like Zombie Proms, Kaleidoscopic Mind Explosions, Judgment Days, etc." says Jackson. "We just wanted to do what we could to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone, and give people some kind of big, crazy experience whenever they came to see us."
