Beach Slang

We've already posted the Modern Baseball, Hurry and The Weaks tracks from the upcoming United Cerebral Palsy-benefitting six-way split on Lame-O Records, Strength In Weakness, and today we get another contribution: Beach Slang. "Too Late To Die Young" is the ninth song and second acoustic song that the band has released in their short-but-already great career so far, and despite its stripped-down sound, it's no less an anthem than the full-band jams. Check it out, via Noisey, below.

As mentioned, they're opening Cursive's Ugly Organ-era tour, including the NYC shows on March 10 (sold out) and March 11 at Bowery Ballroom (tickets), which are both also with John Congleton and The Nighty Nite. After that, they'll tour Europe, play Belgium's Groezrock Fest and Montreal's Pouzza Fest with the still-reunited Knapsack. And finally it's back to the NYC-area for Skate & Surf Fest on May 16 & 17 with The Gaslight Anthem, American Nightmare, Pianos Become the Teeth, Small Brown Bike and many more (tickets).
