Published Jan 17, 2012Last summer saw the release of Beirut's latest LP The Rip Tide. It also found bandleader Zach Condon and co. hitting the concert circuit. If you have fond memories of the project's melancholy yet uplifting, brass-laden compositions scoring your last sunny season, you'll be glad to know Beirut will be back in Canada next July on another tour.
