News: Beachwood Sparks release their new album ‘The Tarnished Gold’ June 22nd

After 11 years of calling it quits, the LA band are set to release their new album ‘The Tarnished Gold’ this June 22nd on Sub Pop through Inertia.

The four musicians had minimal contact with each other until 2008, when they reunited to play SP20, Sub Pop’s 20th anniversary celebration, with Horne quickly learning pedal steel in order to fill in for Scher, who was out with Interpol. The performance went so well that they booked a few dates, including a memorable one at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, right after it reopened following a series of wildfires.

So came to be the making of the new album, ‘The Tarnished Gold’. “When we get our instruments on and have somewhere to play, it’s just supernatural, and it always has been,” Brent marvels. “But this time, I thought we could pull off something unprecedented—for us, at least—where we make a relevant album but not make the same mistakes or live the same rock & roll lifestyle,” says guitarist Dave Scher.

‘The Tarnished Gold’ is out June 22nd on Sub Pop through Inertia.
