James Alex’s Beach Slang went… quiet last year right after releasing a not-so-compelling orchestral rework of punk tracks, out as Quiet Slang’s ‘Everything Matters But No One Is Listening’. A few months later, the indie punk band has broken its silence, announcing a new EP ‘MPLS’, due out on March 15th.
The EP – announced by frontman James Alex on Twitter to be comprising “a Paul Westerberg song and a Bob Mould song, played with abandon, nerves and love” – is set be released under Bridge Nine’s new imprint label Quiet Panic. The new project, announced in the last few hours, welcomes Beach Slang among their first signs. It’s unclear, at this point, whether the band has already parted ties with Polyvinyl Records, their label for the US market.
Check Beach Slang’s official announcement appeared on Twitter. The upcoming EP was produced by Robby Takac of Goo Goo Dolls.
MPLS EP 👊🏻💜— BEACH SLANG. (@beachslang) January 14, 2019
The only thing I ever wanted to be was a rock & roll singer—Minneapolis is the city that showed me the way. A Paul Westerberg song and a Bob Mould song, played with abandon, nerves and love—a great, big, sloppy thank-you. And, damn, do I mean it.
