“I Hate Alternative Rock” Beach Slang
After touring Dashboard Confessional through 2018, Beach Slang’s James Alex has shared new original music to come with the announcement of a covers EP titled MPLS alongside the release of single “I Hate Alternative Rock” (Bob Mould cover) today. Dubbed as a ‘thank you’ to Minneapolis, the EP was produced by Goo Goo Dolls bassist, Robby Takac and will be released March 15 on Quiet Panic through Bridge Nine Records. Along with the news, Beach Slang head out on a European tour with seminal emo/punk legends Jawbreaker, starting April 27th in London, England.
From James Alex:
“This is the spot where my favorite rock & roll found its snot, where the tossed-away found a place to get untossed. […] It felt like the right way to tell a whole city ‘thanks for showing me the way,” explains James Alex. “Westerberg taught me how to write with defiance and tenderness, how to be a dope and a poet. Husker Du showed me how to make it all loud as hell.”
