The Beths, who toured relentlessly throughout 2018 and kicked off 2019 supporting Death Cab For Cutie on their UK and European tour, are currently touring North America with Bad Bad Hats. This week they head to Austin, TX for a series of showcases at SXSW.
2018 was an incredible breakout year for The Beths. Since releasing their debut album Future Me Hates Me via Carpark Records/Dew Process in August, The Beths have been lauded from all corners of the globe. Known for their signature sunny guitar pop, technical prowess and frontwoman Elizabeth Stokes’ witty, self-deprecating lyricism, Future Me Hates Me received international acclaim from music media including PopMatters and Pitchfork, who named it “one of the most impressive indie-rock debuts of the year”.
Rolling Stone, Noisey, Stereogum and more shared enthusiasm for the band, with Bandcamp hailing title track ‘Future Me Hates Me’ as an “album of the summer” and Rolling Stone calling ‘Happy Unhappy’ ”Song of the Summer” and naming The Beths their “Hot Band of 2018”.
