Beirut release their first album in four years with 'The Rip Tide' on 29th August (UK) and 30th August (US).
'The Rip Tide' marks a dramatic and intimate shift from 'The Flying Club Cup' (2007) and his 'stop-off in Mexico' by way of the 'March of the Zapotec' EP (2009). The album will feature 'East Harlem' and 'Goshen' which appear on the band's new limited edition single out now.
'The Rip Tide' will be released internationally and independently on Pompeii Records (via Forte Distribution in the UK and Revolver in the US) a label started, and wholly owned by Condon with NO large label affiliation whatsoever, so as to keep total creative control.
