NEWS: Quiet Slang (Alex James of Beach Slang) details debut album!
March 11th, 2018
Back in 2016, when Philadelphia punk rock ‘n’ rollers Beach Slang were on the brink of breaking up (they pretty much did it onstage), frontman Alex James performed a few solo shows under the slightly adjusted moniker of Quiet Slang whilst the group cooled off and calibrated.
The project expanded a little further with the release of the ‘We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags’ EP in October 2017, and now James has announced details of its debut full-length album, ‘Everything Matters But No One Is Listening’, which is out on May 18th 2018 through Big Scary Monsters.
Co-produced by Dave Downham, the record is composed of stripped back and down-tuned versions of tracks from across Beach Slang‘s catalogue.
When explaining the difference between the two himself, James says, “Beach Slang is drunk, sweaty sins on a Saturday night. Quiet Slang is salvation on Sunday morning. Or maybe it’s about holding on. Something like that.”
