Indie rock duo Beach House have revealed their new album plans to follow up 2015’s Thank Your Lucky Stars. The band announced their upcoming studio release on Wednesday morning, which will be titled 7, and is scheduled for a May 11 release via Sub Pop Records. The band, comprised of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, also shared the album’s second single, which is titled “DIVE” and can be heard in full in the psychedelic black-and-white video above.
The hypnotizing new video is a perfect visual accompaniment to the dreamy new song. Legrand’s angelically layered vocals shine alongside the synthesizers as the track starts out, before Scally’s guitar comes in around the 2:25 minute mark and helps carry the tune into overdrive.
The band also shared their touring plans for the rest of the year, with North American dates scheduled to start on April 30 in Tennessee and run well into the summer before coming to an end on Aug. 25 in Washington, DC. The North American summer run will be followed by an international tour leg throughout much of October before their busy year presumably comes to a close. Legrand and Scally will make some pretty unique stops on their summer tour, including gigs at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the beautiful Kings Theatre in Brooklyn and Denver’s Ogden Theatre, just to name a few.
Pre-sale for tickets to select shows on the band’s North American tour will be starting on Thursday, March 8, with general on-sale following on March 9 at 12 p.m. EST.
The announcement of 7 on Wednesday follows the recently shared “Lemon Glow,” which arrived just a few weeks ago along with an equally fun and psychedelic music video. The band had spent some time on the road in 2017 to help promote the summer release of their B-Sides and Rarities compilation album.
