Los Angeles based and California lovin' surf pop duo Best Coast announced a North American tour and an upcoming EP. Best Coast will be touring with Bleached, Belle and Sebastian, Guards, and Lovely Bad Things.

Recently interviewed by MTV, Bethany Cosentino spoke about their upcoming EP:

“There’s one song that’s a very standard, Best-Coast poppy jam; it was really influenced by Blondie. There’s two slow songs, one of the slow songs is very Mazzy Star influenced, the other one is kinda heavy, a little bit like the Jesus and Mary Chain. And we got a Taylor Swift inspired song. Apparently I’m the Taylor Swift for stoners; that’s pretty tight."

Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno confirmed they will be playing these new songs on tour this summer. Here's hoping they release a single real soon!
