The Beths Releases Early Demos on Cassette Tapes for Bandcamp Friday

May 7, 2021 10:54 am

As a special treat to fans, The Beths is releasing limited edition cassette tapes filled with demos of fan-favorite tracks and hidden gems from their entire catalogue. The songs are a mix of full band and solo recordings by the band’s lead singer Liz Stokes and show off the origins of classic songs like “Future Me Hates Me”, “Happy Unhappy”, “Jump Rope Gazers”, and many more. These early drafts of their music cut right to the center of their compelling and masterfully crafted melodies and arrangements that have hooked listeners over the years.

This release will hopefully be an exciting and rare offering to fans of The Beths this Bandcamp Friday.

The demo cassette tapes will only be available on Bandcamp and are limited to 500 copies. 150 tapes will be released at midnight (EST) on May 7th and the rest will be available to purchase at 9am (EST).

Today we get to see a new music video from The Beths for their track “Mars, the God of War” & it’s filled with spies, lasers, and even a homing pigeon. It has to be one of their best, so check it out here.

Plus! The band is live streaming from their upcoming gig at Auckland Town Hall on Nov. 14th via Bandcamp. Luckily, the band has been able to tour within New Zealand this year, so for those of us outside of NZ, this might be the next best thing for watching a gig this winter! Get your tickets here.

The second single off of The Beths’ forthcoming album ‘Jump Rope Gazers’ is out today! Listen to ‘I’m Not Getting Excited’ and watch the accompanying music video that was filmed entirely in isolation and includes some spooky stop-motion animation.

Liz Stokes explains the imposter syndrome that inspired the lyrics of the song:

People always ask ‘are you excited!?’ and it’s a fair question, because exciting things do happen to us sometimes,” says Elizabeth Stokes. “Support slots, overseas tours, music releases. Stuff we’ve dreamed about for years. So the correct answer is always ‘yes.’ But the truth is that deep down there’s a tiny Liz saying, ‘don’t get excited.’ She is certain that anything good that could happen will most likely not happen, because of a freak accident. Or because somebody finally realises that we aren’t worthy, shouts ‘phony!’ and takes everything away. I wrote ‘I’m Not Getting Excited’ last year, well before everything really did get taken away. From everyone. It feels like the song has a new context, but we don’t know what it is yet. And now we all share a blurry, uncertain future.

Listen to the new single and pre-order the album HERE
