New Zealand's The Beths will release their their third album, Expert in a Dying Field, which will be out September 16 via Carpark Records. The album was recorded in 2021 but interrupted by a four-month lockdown, and then finished while The Beths were on their North American tour, with "mixing in hotel rooms and green rooms and in the back of the tour bus."

The first single from the album is "Silence is Golden," a typically hyperactive Beths powerpop earworm that bandleader and songwriter Liz Stokes says is "about stress and anxiety manifesting as an intolerance to noise, where each new sound makes you more and more stressed." You can watch the video for it below.

You can catch The Beths on tour this summer, including a free show at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival in Prospect Park on July 29, with SASAMI and Charlotte Cornfield, and an Asbury Park, NJ show with tourmate Rosie Tucker at Asbury Lanes on August 26. All dates are listed below.
