Following Friday’s announcement of their sophomore LP, Blame My Ex – set for release on September 15 – and earworm new single, “Blame Brett,” award-winning alt-pop four-piece, The Beaches, excitedly announce their fall 2023 North American headline tour. After hitting the summer festival circuit, the band will head from coast to coast across Canada and the U.S. through October and November. See below for full details.

With their new album, Blame My Ex, The Beaches crack their upbeat, brazen shell to reveal a more vulnerable inside. Eliza Enman-McDaniel (drums), Leandra Earl (keys/guitar), and sisters, Jordan and Kylie Miller (lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively) are letting a real-life heartache lead the way.

Says lead singer Jordan Miller:

“It’s a breakup album. The first time I’d ever been broken up with and my first heartbreak experience. I was going to dive into this relationship but it really was about heartache and redeeming yourself after losing the love of your life, and figuring out that you can find love in so many ways. You can find love from your friends, your family, from your band mates and from yourself. Also, it’s about me putting myself back together and putting myself out there. It is an exercise in therapy and what happens to you after the love of your life doesn’t want to be with you.”

“‘Blame Brett’ is a song with a little bit of a misleading title,” Jordan Miller says. “It’s not really about my relationship. It’s about feeling vulnerable and afraid to open your heart to someone new. I’m basically talking to my future partners, explaining that I can only offer something casual while my heart heals—a song for all the hot messes out there.”

Equal parts funny, scathing, and mournful, Miller, uses Blame Brett as a way to warn potential new partners that she will probably wreak havoc in their relationship due to the irreparable heartbreak of a past breakup. The accompanying music video plays upon the track’s flirty, hedonistic vibes, following the group as they rock out in colourful leather, cheerleader skirts, slinky lingerie, feather boas, and ’90s sunnies.

With Blame My Ex marking their first independent album, and with their absolute creative control, The Beaches are ready to reveal their most earnest selves in their music!
