It’s been less than a year since Beach Slang’s debut The Things We Do To Find People Like Us was named Album Of The Week, leading to a slot on our 50 Best New Bands Of 2015 list. It’s been an interesting year to say the least, with a constant touring schedule, a fresh lineup change and a near break-up. Somehow, amongst all their recent activity, the band found time to enter the studio and record a brand new full-length. A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings will be released in September on Polyvinyl Records, and the first single “Punks In A Disco Bar” premiered this afternoon on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe. Stream it below.
Additionally, the band performed the Replacements’ classic Pleased To Meet Me in full last night as part of a benefit for Sweet Relief Musicians Fund , where they were joined by the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn for a performance of “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Check out a fan-shot video of the performance below.
