LISTEN TO THE PROFESSIONAL EP HERE
The Professional builds upon the sound of the band’s debut album. Weaving in influences from David Bowie to The Bangles to James Brown, the EP is an energetic romp into the world of The Beaches. From eschewing unwanted male attention to elevating the women they admire; each song builds a specific and still relatable world for the listener.
“We’re so stoked to announce the release of our EP ‘The Professional!’ Thanks to everyone who helped us put this together. We’re really proud of these songs and we hope you enjoy them!’ Jordan Miller, The Beaches.
Announced today, The Beaches and The Glorious Sons will be joining The Rolling Stones on June 29th at the Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte. As part of their hugely successful “No Filter” Tour, The Beaches will be joining the legendary band for ‘Canada Rocks with The Rolling Stones,’ the only Canadian show for the Stones.
The Professional EP follows a whirlwind couple of years for the band. After two self-released EPs, The Beaches unveiled their debut album Late Show in October 2017. Produced by Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric, the album’s first single “Money” secured #1 for three consecutive weeks and follow-up “T-Shirt” held the top spot for nine weeks on the Billboard Rock Chart.
Last year also saw The Beaches opening for the Foo Fighters, accompanying the Glorious Sons on their North American Tour and headlining their own shows across Canada. Additionally, the band received an iHeart MMVA nomination in the “Best New Canadian Artist” category where they performed their hit “T-Shirt,” while Sir Elton John, whose support for the girls spans multiple singles, has exclaimed: “Love them, love them, love them!” The year closed out with new track “Fascination” firmly embedded in the top 10 at alternative radio in Canada.
