Late summer tour dates resume August 5th

Beach House has shared “The Traveller,” their first official video from their latest release Thank Your Lucky Stars. The new visual was directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, media artist and founder of Telefantasy Studios, an analog media lab dedicated to the creation of avant-garde television and experiments in video. The video was shot using an obsolete television camera and processed with a video synthesizer and a reconfigured broadcast mixer to create a realm outside of this dimension [link here].

Beach House’s previously announced tour schedule in support ofThank Your Lucky Stars and Depression Cherry resumes August 5th in San Francisco at Outside Lands and runs through November 4th-6th in Austin at Sound on Sound Festival.

What people are saying about Beach House:
Thank Your Lucky Stars
“The temptation to view this album as a sequel to Depression Cherry is strong, but the two albums stand apart: Where the earlier album 
reveled in the bittersweet implications of its title with lush, layered arrangements, Stars is a purer vision of the realities of love, balancing the rush of romance with the burdens that can come along with it.” - Rolling Stone

"Thank Your Lucky Stars is littered with this kind of striking and poetic energy. It layers itself through the album and, coupled with their more straitlaced approach to song construction, in many ways TYLS stands as the band’s most accessible work yet.”  -Stereogum

Thank Your Lucky Stars is 
melancholy beauty. It’s music for late nights, for falling adrift in slow dark waters and gazing numbly at the glowing moonlight.” [9/10] – PopMatters

“The idea that you can have too much of a good thing is thoroughly debunked with Thank Your Lucky Stars, such is the beauty of the songwriting and their uncanny ability to create an all-consuming mood.” [8.5 / 10] - The Line Of Best Fi
“..the full sonic and emotional weight is tremendous.” AV Club

“This album is not like anything they have ever done, and gives music fans reason to be thankful.”  - Consequence of Sound

Depression Cherry
“Singer Victoria Legrand has a refreshingly unshowy croon that’s one of the most seductive in pop, and her gorgeous synth drones and guitarist Alex Scally’s effects-laden riffs are exquisite.” [A -] -Entertainment Weekly

“Reliable, virtually misstep-proof conjurers of a distinct and desirable mood, Legrand and multi-instrumentalist Alex Scally have accumulated the accolades, connections and festival appearances of an unmistakably cool band. But for Beach House, coolness is just another word for calm, for a sound that's engineered to settle jangled nerves and transport listeners to a warmer, softer, easier place.” - NPR Music 

“Anyone who doesn't fall for Depression Cherry's hypnotic splendour probably just isn't a Beach House 
fan, or didn't live with the album long enough. But those who do will recognize this album as the sweeping, grand gesture they've been working up to giving us for the last nine years.” [9/10] - Exclaim!

Depression Chery has four masterful set pieces, staggered to hit as odd-numbered tracks, each deepening the pervasive sense of rediscovered romance.” [8.5 / 10] - MAGNET

“Another impeccably measured step forward.” [8.4 / 10 “Best New Music] - Pitchfork

“Depression Cherry may proudly adhere to every fuzzy touchstone of the genre, but it’s also a record on which every subtle chord shift and breathy sigh 
feels considered.” [4/5] - The Guardian
