Beth Israel releasing new EP (stream a track), touring including 2 NYC shows (1 with Future Punx & Heaven’s Gate)
Beth Israel @ BVSXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Austin synth-punks Beth Israel have a new cassette EP, titled The Loaner, coming out May 5 via Dull Tools. Both sides are mini-suites that go from ambient to wham-bam slammers and back again. You can check out a section of Side B, titled "Love," which makes its premiere in this post, below.
Beth Israel, who played one of our 2014 SXSW parties, will be on tour soon, hitting NYC at the same time as Northside Festival. They're playing two shows: June 8 at Shea Stadium (lineup TBA), and June 11 at Silent Barn which is a Dull Tools showcase featuring Future Punx, Heaven's Gate and more. Neither are official Northside showcases, however.
All dates are listed, along with the song stream, below...
