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.”
