Founded in the fall of 2012, Beach Party was a smashed to basics garage punk band from the first night they played a pool party and the first morning they woke up drunk and wondering where those brand new head wounds had come from. This mystery was never solved but naturally, great things were in their future. While some may grumble at their name, LA's good times garage punks Beach Party have some cred behind them. Last year's single, "Can't Surf / Fun," was recorded by Ty Segall and the band have shared stages with Best Coast, Bass Drum of Death, and Black Lips. It’s the tough side of ‘60s garage, the too-smart-for-its-own-good part of first-wave punk and the jet-engine beginnings of hardcore, when a band like the Zero Boys could share a bill with the Ramones and everyone would go home happy and bloody. Which, funnily enough, is exactly the way Beach Party started in the first place.
Now, the band prepares to release their second EP, Ripper, recorded by Sonny Diperri (Portugal The Man, Hanni El Khatib,STRFKR).
