Beirut-First international tour

| On 30, Jun 2011

Beirut is set to embark on its first international tour in over four years in support of ‘The Rip Tide’, out 29th August on Pompeii Records.

Joining Beirut leader Zach Condon (ukulele, trumpet, piano, vocals) on the road is Perrin Cloutier (accordion, piano), Paul Collins (electric bass, upright bass), Ben Lanz (trumpet, piano, tuba), Nick Petree (drums), and Kelly Pratt (trumpet, euphonium). A six piece band who has consistently honed their live show throughout the band’s career, Beirut puts on an undeniably solid and confident performance and shows a singular band maturing both on record and in concert.

Few predicted the inward journey Condon has achieved on ‘The Rip Tide’. With songs that speak of universal human themes that are less fabricated stories than impressions of life at a quarter century of age, the album exposes a depth of honesty that outstrips the simplified nomadic troubadour image of his past.

Beirut have also unveiled the artwork for ‘The Rip Tide’ and details of it’s physical release. The CD digipak comes with a booklet and the deluxe heavyweight vinyl is entirely cloth bound and includes an MP3 download code for the album.

‘The Rip Tide’ artwork can be downloaded from the Stay Loose assets page (alongside new Beirut photos) now:
