Best Coast to release The Only Place on May 15, with little to no input from Dave Grohl

It took all we had not to kill our super-chilled-out-beach-hair-cool vibes when we heard that the powerhouse known as Best Coast (the only band we know of managed by a cat named Snacks) aired the exciting news that their next album will arrive on May 15 through Mexican Summer. Entitled The Only Place, the sophomore effort is produced by Jon Brion and its cover art features a big ol’ bear cradling the 4:20-friendly state that is California.

The cuddly feelings you get when you see the art are sure to carry over to the album itself, as singer Bethany Cosentino describes it as “seriously emo.” Previously released tracks “How They Want Me to Be,” “Dreaming My Life Away,” and “Up All Night” are all included on the upcoming full-length. If that’s not enough Best Coast for you, well, luckily you can you spend your summer chillaxxxed the fuck out, then get off your stoned ass to make it to one of Best Coast’s tour stops. Snacks the cat would want you to.
