We already knew Beach Slang were playing the stacked third day of Brooklyn's Gigawatts Festival (7/26) with Braid, Swearin', Laura Stevenson, Cheap Girls, Chumped, and more; and they've now announced a tour surrounding that. The tour includes two other shows in the area right before the Brooklyn date: Long Island's Amityville Music Hall on July 24 with Iron Chic, Broadcaster and Scout Boys ($10 at door, more info hereAsbury Lanes on July 25 (tickets).
Tickets for all three days of Gigawatts (also including Black Lips, Liturgy, Anamanaguchi and more) are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Details below.
Beach Slang also play Riot Fest Chicago, Riot Fest Denver, The Wrecking Ball, Pygmalion, and The Fest, which Beach Slang singer James Snyder's other band Weston plays too.
Their debut LP will be out later this year on Polyvinyl, but most details still TBA. Meanwhile, listen to last year's two EPs, with their list of dates, below...
