If you've worn out your copies of Beach Slang's two great 2014 EPs, you're in luck, because their debut album for Polyvinyl has finally been announced. It's called The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us, and it's due out October 30 (pre-order). First single "Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas" is out now, and it's got just about everything you want from Beach Slang: ringing anthemic guitars and lyrics about how your heart is "too fucked up to love, too soft to hate!" Listen (via Noisey) and check out the artwork and tracklist below.

The band have upcoming tour dates, including a run with Bouncing Souls, Leftover Crack and All Torn Up which comes to New York for Long Island and upstate shows. All dates are listed below.

Beach Slang were last in NYC for Gigawatts Festival, where they sounded awesome as always and covered Jawbreaker's "Bad Scene, Everyone's Fault." Check out a video of that cover from another recent tour stop, and more pictures of their Gigawatts set, below...
