They may not be the Washington, DC band that everyone was hoping would get back together after a lengthy hiatus (coughFUGAZIcough), but Beauty Pill don’t care, they’re just psyched to be back. The group will not only be releasing a new album, but they’ll also be creating said new album in public, as an homage to the famous Abbey Road Studio Two window. Beauty Pill will embark on a summer residency from July 16 to August 2 and a winter installation in December/January at Arlington, VA’s Artisphere Black Box Theater, where the public can come and watch them create their new record live.
“The way that we make music involves a lot of stumbling in the dark,” said frontman Chad Clark, in a press release. “Making that process accessible and visible to the outside world will, if nothing else, be an exercise in vulnerability.” Artisphere is located at 1101 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington.
