The Beths have announced their third album.

'Expert In A Dying Field' will arrive on September 16 via Carpark Records, following up 2020's 'Jump Rope Gazers'.

The New Zealand band began recording in 2021 at guitarist Jonathan Pearce's studio in Auckland, until the COVID-19 pandemic halted sessions and New Zealand introduced a four-month lockdown. They finished writing it remotely, then completed recording in Los Angeles earlier in 2022 following their tour of the United States.

Alongside the news, the band have dropped a Callum Devlin-directed video for the lead single, Silence Is Golden, an intense, propulsive, indie-pop track that's filled with hooks. Singer and songwriter Elizabeth Stokes commented:

"The song is about stress and anxiety manifesting as an intolerance to noise. Where each new sound makes you more and more stressed."

The Beths will tour North America this summer before Australian and New Zealand dates later in 2022. Head here for details.
