“Clash the Truth” came out only four days prior to the show, yet the lyrics were ingrained in the crowd’s minds. In acknowledgment of the leak, Payseur jokingly remarked that he too heard the album before it came out.

The show continued in the same vein, equal parts mosh pit and pleasant crowd work. When the encore came, the band played its most low-key song to date, “Sleep Apnea,” during which drummer Tommy Lucas surprised the audience by stepping away from the drums and pulling out an alto saxophone for a solo. It was an incredible ten minutes that pulled the audience into a dreamlike trance that sobered them after 45 minutes of pulsating indie rock.

The band quickly fell back into its energetic swing, finishing the concert with “Daydream.” Payseur instructed the crowd to freak out, and the audience zealously obliged, ending a thoroughly entertaining night. – [NYU News]

Beach Fossils played a sold-out Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (2/23), a record release show for the band’s second album, Clash the Truth, which support from The Sleepies and Mr. Dream. If you went, how does Beach Fossils line-up compare to the old one with Cole from DIIV?

If you missed the Bowery show, Beach Fossils next NYC show is at 285 Kent on Sunday (3/3) with Chris Cohen, Divorce Money and LODRO. It’s being billed as the Brooklyn record release show and tickets are still available. More photos from Bowery are below.
