Attendees will have the opportunity to buy this title early at the event! We’ll have the CD and the Turquoise LP available.
Honeymoon is the excellent debut album from Beach Bunny, the four-piece band out of Chicago. Recorded at the iconic Chicago studio Electrical Audio with producer Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Algernon Caldwaller), the nine songs on the LP burst with energy that capture their vital and life-affirming live shows. Songs like the swooning and anthemic singles “Dream Boy” and “Ms. California” encapsulate the highs and lows the exiting the honeymoon stage of a relationship. The long-awaited debut LP “Honeymoon” from Beach Bunny follows their breakout hit on Tik-Tok, “Prom Queen” (65 million global streams, 518K+ TikTok videos). Honeymoon will be released on February 14th, 2020 following a major market tour with festival plays.

Criminal Records celebrates The Clash for International Clash Day 2020 on February 7th.
International Clash Day 2020
“Every February 7th, KEXP and music lovers worldwide come together to celebrate International Clash Day. What began as a tribute to The Clash’s music and legacy has evolved into a banner celebration of the issues and message they stood for. The Clash were unapologetically confrontational and champions of the oppressed, always striving for the possibility of a better world. That’s why in 2020 we’re using the holiday to Clash For Climate.
Leading up to and during International Clash Day, we’ll be celebrating artists around the world who are confronting the climate crisis as well as highlighting activists, public servants, and organizations who are working toward solutions for our planet’s dire situation. Even as Earth feels the clampdown, the pathway to a new day isn’t out of reach. Tune in to our broadcast from 6 AM – 6 PM PT on Feb. 7 to hear songs and exclusive interviews that demonstrate the power of music and how it unites us in the common effort to write the future we want.
As Joe Strummer once said, “The future is unwritten.”
