Stream the new Beach Fossils album, Clash The Truth


Last month, we posted a Q&A with Beach Fossils singer/guitarist Dustin Payseur, where he explained the songwriting process that led him to his band's sophomore album, Clash The Truth. "It’s [about] a lot of frustration from a lot of different sources," he said. "Just kind of seeing the way that a lot of the rest of the music industry treats music and it seems silly, its just a game, there's so much involved with just purely about profit that seems so silly and so completely far from the point at all. It’s not related to art at all. It’s not related to music or creating anything and it just seems disgusting and frustrating." Payseur continued:

A lot of it is about that in a way. And about my frustration with myself and trying to figure out what makes me happy or where can I be happy? This is the life I’ve chosen, but sometimes when you're on tour, it feels sort of horrible. Sometimes there's just nothing good about it. It’s a confusing feeling. But at the same time, I'd much rather do this than have a 9-5 job by far. It’s just about this internal conflict I have in general that’s always going on. There’s not really an answer or solution. I just have to go with it. The songs, a lot are about me coping with that or my confusion with the whole thing. With everything that’s tied in with that."
