New Music of The Day – XCI : Art School – Beaumont

f7b71f39-408f-43b5-a696-c26bd2c1a4d1After rounding off 2015 with a short run of dates alongside UK pop punk hot property Light You Up and WSTR, Birmingham-based newcomers Beaumontare pleased to announce they will release their debut EP ‘Nothing’ on 2nd May 2016 via Reclaim Music (PVRIS, Light You Up, A Loss For Words).

To give fans a taster of the new material, the band have revealed a lyric videofor previously un-released new track ‘Art School’ which features front man Spencer Edmonds on typically misanthropic form holding a sparkler and staring blankly into the camera.

 

Commenting on the new EP, he says: “”Nothing’ is full of alternative rock songs that cover a range of emotions from hatred and greed to loneliness. It’s a snapshot of how we were feeling at specific times over the last two years. We should be getting on with our lives, getting a foot in a good career, saving for a house, nice car and holidays but instead we’re releasing this EP in hope of something else and I’m not sure why.”

Taking their name from a Shakespearean character in ‘Henry V’ who died without uttering a single word, the quintet of friends aren’t quite your typical bunch of lads rising up from the city’s derelict industrial centre in Digbeth, Birmingham. With an admirable passion and resilience amidst what they call their “miserable and mundane” surroundings, they’ve got a flair for a unique melody with a melancholy twist as evidenced on the new material, produced by John Mitchell (Lower Than Atlantis, You Me At Six) at Outhouse studios.

With members that have already toured and played with bands including Light You Up, Four Year Strong, ROAM, State Champs and A Loss For Words over the last few years, Beaumont already have a pedigree that’s hard to deny, even at this fledgling stage, picking up early support from Rock Sound, Discovered Magazine, Kerrang! Radio, Amazing Radio, Punktastic and more.

Further details of the ‘Nothing’ EP and UK tour dates will be revealed over the coming weeks.
