Band Of The Week: Beach Slang

US punk-rockers Beach Slang are about to storm the UK with their deafening guitar anthems that could implode the sturdiest of basements.

Poised to sweep the UK from this week, frenetic punk-rockers Beach Slang should be concreted into your playlists immediately.

Formed out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the band released their debut LP The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us last October and we've been rattling our neighbours walls with it ever since. 

They are fronted by James Alex Synder, a rock n' roll purist who was plugging the shit out of the nineties with pop-punk outfit Weston. Persisting with his rock heavy exploits, Beach Slang were formed in 2013 between Ed McNulty (Bass), JP Flexner (Drums) and Ruben Gallego (Guitar). 

They've since escaped the blocks ablaze, firing off rampantly charged epics that hark the spirit of having nothing to lose. That's what hits home most; listening to their crusading record is an experience that makes you feel ultimately alive as James clenches his lungs with each and every note in similar vein to Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem.       

If grumbling bass, ear-splitting guitars, hurtling drums and sincere lyricism bound into an anthemic fireball is your thing then Beach Slang airing off in your nearest city this month is bound to hit the sweet spot.
