Beach House at Sasquatch 2011 (more by Josh Darr)
Beach House

Beach House have announced that they'll release the followup to 2010's excellent Teen Dream this year. The new album is called Bloom and it will be out on May 15 via Sub Pop in the US. It was produced by Chris Coady (Grizzly Bear, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and in an interview with NME (via FACT), guitarist Alex Scally said it will be "their own Pet Sounds or Disintegration, not in sound, but as something which feels like a definitive statement." Ambitious, but isn't that every indie band's teen dream?

The album's first single, "Myth," is great and is definitely making me look forward to the new album. You can stream that below, along with the album's tracklist.

The band have also announced an international tour in support of the album which will go down this May and June. That tour doesn't include any NYC shows at the moment but after taking a break, the band will make it to NYC to headline Central Park Summerstage on July 23. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, 3/16 at noon.

All dates, song stream, and album tracklist below...

1 Myth

Hang on....

Fucking BEACH HOUSE can play 5500-capacity venues?

"Their own Pet Sounds." This sounds a bit ambitious as well.

What the hell Summerstage?

Remember when you had two Black Keys and one Flaming Lips shows? Yeah, now you're doing Childish Gambino, Foster The People, and Beach House?

Way to down the ante substantially...

in fairness, this is probably going to be a pretty good show.

116 do you not understand the passing of time, and the ebbs and flows of the popularity of the aforementioned musical acts?

Bunch of guys with purses.

I still listen to Teen Dream at least once a month. Very excited for the new album and I kinda hope they crossover a bit.

Posted by AnonHUMMUS | March 8, 2012 2:18 PM

I really used to like this band.

Posted by Arty | March 8, 2012 2:18 PM

Looking forward to picking up a $5 ticket at the door.

I hope beach house finally realised that they are better than the hipster image they gave themselves.

Monday night. Awesome.

good music to eat hummus too.

This is such good news!

They easily sold out two nights at Webster Hall (cap: 1,500) last year well in advance - this will be no problem for them to fill.

They are a great live band, and seeing them at Summerstage is a welcome alternative to the typical next stop after Webster: T5

Count your blessings for that.

hey let's name our band BEACH HOUSE...YEAH GREAT FUCKING IDEA

How can anybody not rate this? I'm excited to hear the new album. Devotion and Teen Dream are two of my faves of recent years.

Posted by Anonymous | March 8, 2012 8:57 PM

I like this band a lot but all their songs sound the fucking same. But i'm still gonna spend the money to see this day of show.

What is the presale code?

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2012 8:34 AM

Any word on the presale code?

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2012 11:42 AM

Can someone please leave the Summerstage presale code / password?

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2012 2:10 PM

Yes there are 2 presale codes
The first one is "You are an idiot if you pay full price for this show when tickets will be so easily available for below face the week of the show"

The second one is "They will be playing a small more intimate show before this and will be announced closer to the date"

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2012 2:49 PM

Anyone feel like sharing the SummerStage presale code?

Posted by Anonymous | March 14, 2012 4:13 PM

some of these commenters are so negative.

beach house payed summerstage before, and it was wonderful.
and 2:49, you don't have to be in a tiny, dark venue sniffing each others' farts for it to be intimate.

Posted by rina | March 16, 2012 11:09 AM

Posted by Anonymous | March 16, 2012 12:09 PM

Posted by Anonymous | March 16, 2012 12:22 PM

Got through the 15 min. wait, clicked pay, and the site went down. Back in line with another 15 minute wait. Hogwash.

Posted by Anonymous | March 16, 2012 12:23 PM
