BEACH SLANG Shares New Album on NPR First Listen

BEACH SLANG 

STREAM NEW ALBUM A LOUD BASH OF TEENAGE FEELINGS VIA NPR FIRST LISTEN

Album Out September 23rd On Polyvinyl Records

On Tour Now


Philadelphia's Beach Slang will release their new album, A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings, on September 23rd on Polyvinyl Records. The album is available now to stream via NPR First Listen who says, "Beach Slang, pulls off exactly what it promises. A spiritual descendent of The Replacements - as well as a sonic cousin to bands like The Gaslight Anthem and Japandroids, who share its gift for dramatic pronouncements about life, death and rock 'n' roll - Beach Slang rattles the rafters with grace, power and concision." Listen to the album HERE.

The band recently released the music video for their single "Atom Bomb" with Noisey, who called it "the fastest rager from A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings."

Beach Slang's second full-length is a crash-and-thunder collection of songs about what it takes to keep yourself going, to make it through the rest of the night-hell, through the rest of your youth-and beyond. Frontman James Alex wrote much of A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings on their first album's support tour, during which he spent a lot of time with the kids who'd picked up the record. 

The band previously shared the song "Punks in Disco Bar." The video was described byNPR as "...a glimpse into what it's like to be young, misunderstood and out of place, yet finding belonging in each other. It's the perfect complement to 'Punks In A Disco Brand an ode to the motifs and life-affirming mission of Beach Slang." Watch it HERE.

Praise for Beach Slang:
"A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings single and song of the day "Punks In A Disco Bar" channels the same exuberant energy found throughout the group's debut album. Guitar riffs recall the best of 90's pop-punk and James' gravely voice emanates enough emotion to fill a stadium." - KEXP

"Packed with charred guitar riffs, seething feedback and heart-rate-raising drum fills, the song is another of Alex's unifying anthems. Influenced by the stories of countless fans whom the band (including bassist Ed McNulty and guitarist Ruben Gallego) met during a tumultuous year on the road, the song earnestly touches on the energy and alienation of youth, and on rising above our struggles together." - NPR Songs We Love

"Punks in a Disco Bar... is fist-pumping rock splendor, all big and wild and free." - USA Today

"As with everything Beach Slang puts out, the song is a raw, loud, and everything you want in a punk song, but is also still melodic and contains plenty of heart." - Baeble Music

"'Punks in a Disco Bar,' the first track from the record, a typically rousing and clattering track that will probably make your day 20 percent better." - Noisey
"The song will certainly be instantly recognizable to fans of the band's previous work, with the same never-caring, heart-punching, loud-things-loving lyrics and thick Minneapolis-style riffing of Beach Slang's debut LP - if a touch wearier than last time out." - Spin 

"the heart-on-the-sleeve punks have already become the kind of band that fans rush to get tattooed all over their bodies. Well, those fans had better make room for some new ink..." - Consequence of Sound

"This new track seeps with feelings of youth and their accompanying frustration. Very punk guitar drowns the entire two minutes and 41 seconds, and the vocals don't hold anything back. It's just what you'd expect from a song called "Punks In A Disco Bar," and that's not a bad thing." WXPN
