“The Professional is a collection of songs that we’re extremely proud of. It includes our two singles Fascination and Snake Tongue with three brand new tracks.

THE PROFESSIONAL EP TRACKLIST
Want What You Got
The Professional EP follows a whirlwind couple of years for the band. After two self-released EPs, The Beaches unveiled their debut album Late Show in October 2017. Late Show was produced by Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric. The album’s first single “Money” secured #1 for three consecutive weeks and follow-up “T-Shirt” held the top spot for nine weeks on the Billboard Rock Chart.
Last year also saw The Beaches opening for the Foo Fighters, accompanying the Glorious Sons on their North American Tour and headlining their own shows across Canada. Additionally, the band received an iHeart MMVA nomination in the “Best New Canadian Artist” category where they performed their hit “T-Shirt,” while Sir Elton John, whose support for the girls spans multiple singles, has exclaimed: “Love them, love them, love them!” The year closed out with new track “Fascination” firmly embedded in the top 10 at alternative radio in Canada.
