The Beaches Announce 2023 Tour Dates
After announcing their new album, Blame My Ex, due for release on September 15th, The Beaches, have revealed new 2023 North American tour dates. The band will head from coast to coast across Canada and the U.S. through October and November.
The band paired with executive producer, Lowell (Madison Beer, Nessa Barrett), and Gus Van Go (Arkells, Sam Roberts), and producer, Sam Willows (Ruby Waters).
The Beaches have opened for The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette, Passion Pit, and the Eagles of Death Metal, and many more. The group includes Eliza Enman-McDaniel (drums), Leandra Earl (keys/guitar), and sisters, Jordan and Kylie Miller (lead vocals/bass and guitar.
“It’s a breakup album. The first time I’d ever been broken up with and my first heartbreak experience,” says lead singer, Jordan Miller. “I was going to dive into this relationship but it really was about heartache and redeeming yourself after losing the love of your life, and figuring out that you can find love in so many ways. You can find love from your friends, your family, from your band mates and from yourself. Also, it’s about me putting myself back together and putting myself out there. It is an exercise in therapy and what happens to you after the love of your life doesn’t want to be with you.”
When the heart splits open, it unleashes all kinds of love; from platonic to queer and everything in between. The Beaches uncover it all on this album, while managing to keep it “equal parts silly party beaches, and heartbroken emotional girls,” says guitarist, Kylie Miller.
The album’s latest single, Blame Brett:
“Blame Brett is a song with a little bit of a misleading title,” Jordan Miller says. “It’s not really about my relationship. It’s about feeling vulnerable and afraid to open your heart to someone new. I’m basically talking to my future partners, explaining that I can only offer something casual while my heart heals—a song for all the hot messes out there.”
Equal parts funny, scathing, and mournful, Miller, uses Blame Brett as a way to warn potential new partners that she will probably wreak havoc in their relationship due to the irreparable heartbreak of a past breakup. The accompanying music video plays upon the track’s flirty, hedonistic vibes, following the group as they rock out in colorful leather, cheerleader skirts, slinky lingerie, feather boas, and 90s sunnies.
