Following quickly on the heels of their breakthrough debut, Philadelphia, PA’s Beach Slang will head right back in the studio in late June to record a new release that will come out in the Fall on Tiny Engines. The new material will follow up the band’s debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?.
Beach Slang have been the talk of the scene this year making a big splash with their powerful debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?. A supergroup of sorts, featuring James Snyder of Weston, JP Flexner of Ex-Friends and Ed McNulty, formerly of Nona, currently of Crybaby, Beach Slang’s seamless mix of indie, emo and pop/punk is the perfect punk rock Summer soundtrack.
Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? is now available for Order from Dead Broke Rekerds. The EP is also available digitally on Bandcamp, as well as iTunes and Spotify. The EP was recorded in August 2013 at The Gradwell House In Haddon Heights, NJ by Dave Downham and mastered at Armstrong Recording Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma by Stephen Egerton.
The band will be playing their very first shows this month with Crow Bait (Don Giovanni). Dates are listed below. The band has also been confirmed for The Fest in Gainesville this Fall. More shows to come!
JUN 12 – Long Island, NY @ Soul Sounds
JUN 13 – Brooklyn, NY @ Suburbia
JUN 14 – Philadelphia, PA @ Golden Tea House
OCT 31 – NOV 02: Gainesville, FL (The Fest!)
“And whereas Snyder’s band Weston defined being an awkward teenager in the 90s, Beach Slang catches up with that same goofy kid at forty, stoked as ever on punk rock and loud, brash guitars.” – Noisey (feature)
“There’s a careening, about-to-explode urgency of the guitars on Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? that’s every bit as crucial to these songs’ emotional heft as Snyder’s lyrics…It may stick pretty close to the down-and-out, but Broken’s a fairly life-affirming record.” – Pitchfork (full review)
“Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken, sounds like it could’ve come from an alternate-universe 1996 where Weston matured, maintained their facility for shoutalong hooks, and ruled MTV…it’s a goddamn shame that no radio station is going to give this the kind of airplay it deserves.” – Pitchfork (track review)
