Beirut Announces Additional Tour Dates In Support Of New Album ‘The Rip Tide’


Beirut is pleased to announce additional tour dates in support of new album The Rip Tide, out now via Pompeii Records. The tour is currently underway and shows have been receiving rave reviews:

“The show confirmed how cohesive this group has become. And it showed how Mr. Condon has been growing into his singing…he sounded like someone who knew his bearings, and well.”
– The New York Times

“Constantly subverting expectation without becoming contrived, Beirut can transport you somewhere else during their songs; ironic, then, that tonight there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.”
– The Independent

“Condon evolved as both a songwriter and singer. His compositions have become more lush and intricate…but Condon’s maturation is evident mostly in his voice. This was on full display at Terminal 5.”
– SPIN

Joining Beirut leader Zach Condon (ukulele, trumpet, piano, vocals) on the road is Perrin Cloutier (accordion, piano), Paul Collins (electric bass, upright bass), Ben Lanz (trombone, piano, tuba), Nick Petree (drums), and Kelly Pratt (trumpet, euphonium). A six piece band who has consistently honed their live show throughout the band’s career, Beirut puts on an undeniably solid and confident performance and shows a singular band maturing both on record and in concert.

Beirut recently visited NPR for a Tiny Desk Concert, performing The Rip Tide tracks “East Harlem” and “Santa Fe,” as well as a Hawk and a Hacksaw arrangement of the traditional “Serbian Cocek.” Watch that here: http://www.npr.org/2011/09/19/140599451/beirut-tiny-desk-concert
