Over the past two years Beach Slang have played shows, written a number of songs, the band has done everything but release a full-length album. Their new album The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us is the culmination of their collective career and picks up where their two 7-inches, 2014’s Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street and Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken? left off. The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us will be out October 30, 2015 on Polyvinyl Records. It will be available on cd,cassette and digital as well as a limited 800 run of 180-gram clear vinyl. Today, the band have shared the first single off the album, “BAD ART & WEIRDO IDEAS”

The feelings of youth and vulnerability lie at the core of Beach Slang’s music, which is part punk, part pop and all catharsis. It references the ghosts of the Replacements but keeps one foot firmly rooted in the present. It’s fun and it’s serious. It’s sad but it isn’t. It’s Beach Slang. Frontman and writer James Alex cut his teeth in the celebrated pop-punk act Weston while drummer JP Flexner, bassist Ed McNulty and guitarist Ruben Gallego also played in buzzed about projects such as Ex-Friends, Nona and Glocca Morra respectively.
