Beach House Announce New Album ‘Depression Cherry’ Along With Tour Dates

 photo beachhouse_zpsqzjxhdzc.jpg

This year on paper looks like it could be one of the better ones in recent memory and with Beach House coming back into the fold, this only has become more of a sure thing. On August 28, they will be releasing their fifth full-length, titled Depression Cherry, via Sub Pop in North America, Bella Union in Europe, and Mistletone in Australia/New Zealand. The band says of the direction in the new LP:

“In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”
