BEACH RIOT Reveal New Single ‘Tell Me I’m Wrong’ Released 3rd July 2023

Brighton fuzz pop band BEACH RIOT are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Tell Me I’m Wrong’, set for release on 3rd July 2023 via Alcopop! Records. The track follows on from previous standalone single ‘Tramlines’, and comes ahead of the band’s appearance on the main stage at 2000 Trees Festival this weekend, with a run of October 2023 EU tour dates alongside German punks Itchy also just announced (see below for listings). Recorded at Vada Studios and engineered by Pete Hutchins (Royal Blood, Gang Of Youths, Foals), the new single was mastered by Grant Berry at Fader Mastering. Commenting on the single, the band said: “All we wanna do is take this song onto the stage and be the soundtrack to people’s summer. It’s such a fun, hooky singalong song to play and we can’t wait to join everyone in the sun for this one at Trees.”

2023 singles ‘Tell Me I’m Wrong’ and ‘Tramlines’ are the first new material from the band following the release of their debut album Subatomic Party Cool on Alcopop! Records in 2021. Recorded in 2020 and produced by Ally Jowett at his home studio in Brighton, the resulting collection of fuzz-drenched power pop was showered with praise from Kerrang! Magazine, CLASH, MOJO, The iNewspaper, Louder Than War and LOUDER. A string of incendiary singles from the record saw the band steadily building momentum throughout the campaign, picking up new radio champions in BBC Radio One’s Jack Saunders and BBC 6music’s Tom Robinson, and crashing onto Spotify UK’s New Music Friday, Noisy, Alternative Noise, The Rock List, All New Rock, Top of The Rock, New Noise, Shockwave, and Fresh Finds Rock playlists to name a few. The band’s radio support has also been bolstered by a #12 spot on the Amazing Radio Chart, an evening playlist addition from XS Manchester, plus key radio spins from Huw Stephens and Daniel P Carter at BBC Radio One, John Kennedy at Radio X, BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Total Rock, legendary US station KEXP, and BBC introducing. Having previously played Reading & Leeds Festival, Truck Festival, The Great Escape and more, the band embarked on a run of German tour dates with Berlin power trio PABST last year, and the quartet will be announcing further live dates for 2023 in the very near future.
