Beach Slang Share ‘Atom Bomb’ Video

New Album ‘A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings’ Out September 23rd On Polyvinyl Records

On Tour Now

Philadelphia’s Beach Slang will be releasing their new album, ‘A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings’, out this September 23rd on Polyvinyl Records. The band have shared the video for their single ‘Atom Bomb’.

Beach Slang’s second full-length is a crash-and-thunder collection of songs about what it takes to keep yourself going, to make it through the rest of the night-hell, through the rest of your youth-and beyond. Frontman James Alex wrote much of ‘A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings’ on their first album’s support tour, during which he spent a lot of time with the kids who’d picked up the record.

The band previously shared the song ‘Punks in Disco Bar’. The video was described by NPR as ‘…a glimpse into what it’s like to be young, misunderstood and out of place, yet finding belonging in each other. It’s the perfect complement to ‘Punks In A Disco Bar’ and an ode to the motifs and life-affirming mission of Beach Slang’.

Nice things said about ‘Punks in a Disco Bar’;

‘The song will certainly be instantly recognizable to fans of the band’s previous work, with the same never-caring, heart-punching, loud-things-loving lyrics and thick Minneapolis-style riffing of Beach Slang’s debut LP – if a touch wearier than last time out.’ – Spin

‘the heart-on-the-sleeve punks have already become the kind of band that fans rush to get tattooed all over their bodies. Well, those fans had better make room for some new ink…’ – Consequence of Sound

‘We need endorphin-heavy, heart-on-sleeve, major-chord, grin-inducing punk rock right now. I mean we need it. There’s a goddamn duty of care: punk has to hold people to account and spit against authority, but sometimes you need to smile like an idiot and let go.’ – Noisey

‘This new track seeps with feelings of youth and their accompanying frustration. Very punk guitar drowns the entire two minutes and 41 seconds, and the vocals don’t hold anything back. It’s just what you’d expect from a song called “Punks In A Disco Bar,” and that’s not a bad thing.’ – WXPN
