Beach Slang

Beach Slang have been talking about the full-length followup to their two great 2014 EPs, and it's now been announced that they've signed to Polyvinyl Records for it, making them labelmates with American Football, Japandroids, of Montreal, and more. Label founder Matt Lunsford said:

I was blown away by both of the Beach Slang 7"s. When we got to know the band, we were delighted that Polyvinyl and Beach Slang are such natural complements--sharing a hard working, DIY aesthetic and true love for what we do. We could not be more excited to be working together!

And Beach Slang singer James Snyder added, "I cannot stop floating. Thanks for making all of this happen. And, fuck, I do mean that." Congrats guys! Album info is still TBA, but in the meantime you can revisit their EPs and their new song from the 6-way split with Modern Baseball and other bands, below.

They also begin their tour with Cursive tonight. It includes NYC stops at Bowery Ballroom on March 10 & 11, and the recently-added Saint Vitus show on March 12. All three are sold out, but you can still get tickets to the nearby NJ and Long Island shows on that tour. Beach Slang return to the NYC-area for Asbury Park's Skate & Surf in May.
