After a national tour with Dashboard Confessional in 2018, Beach Slang’s James Alex teases 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 via New Noise Magazine. Dubbed as a ‘thank you’ to Minneapolis, the EP was produced by Goo Goo Dolls bassist, Robby Takac and will be released March 15th on Quiet Panic through Bridge Nine Records. Pre-order the EP HERE.
"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."
