The band made the announcement with the use of an album trailer, a trend that seems to be rapidly growing. The album is 11 tracks, and features many of the new songs that they played at Bonnaroo a few weeks ago. The album was recorded with producer Jacknife Lee in his home studio in Los Angelas.
Here’s what lead singer Alex Trimble had to say about the record:
Beacon is a much more intimate record than our first, but at the same time, it’s much bigger and more inclusive. Trying to find that balance has been our goal for a long time and this record takes us one step closer to the band we’ve dreamt of becoming.
The band are playing a NYC show at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield on September 28. Tickets go on sale friday at noon.
