Listen: THE BEARDS stream Beard-riffic New Album, THE BEARD ALBUM...

Written by

The time has come. On May 13, Australian beard enthusiasts, bearded comedians and beard rockers, THE BEARDS will release their latest record, THE BEARD ALBUM. While pre-orders are growing like facial hair (fast and furry) on both iTunes and Amazon, the folks at The AV Club have begun streaming THE BEARD ALBUM in it's entirety via Soundcloud. So, you can go there for your bearded music fix, or just stream the luxurious new BEARDS album in the very same Soundcloud player below. I won't tell anyone if you don't...

“Our previous albums were pretty beardy, but we just felt they didn’t quite fully sum up our affinity toward beards. Now with this new album, we feel like we’ve finally released what will probably go down as the most pro-beard album in history.” Bassist, Nathanial Beard

Since the release of their highly-acclaimed third album Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard, The Beards have become the world’s premier beard-related musical act, uniting the bearded and ostracizing the clean-shaven globally. They’ve embarked on multiple sold-out worldwide tours(including shows at 2013’s SXSW, Canadian Music Week and The Great Escape), cracked Triple J’s Hottest 100 chart, been nominated for Best Comedy Album at the ARIA Awards (Australia’s version of the Grammy’s), shared stages with the likes of with Reggie Watts, KISS and Motley Crue, and won-over such pop royalty as Ke$ha and Gotye.

The Beards’ dedication to providing a voice for the bearded underdogs has created a global cult that follows their ever-expanding catalog of songs about one thing: beards. Yet with The Beard Album, this group of rugged Australians take their totalitarian beard-rock to new heights, with powerhouse anthems like “All The Bearded Ladies,” “There’s A Bearded Man Inside Me,” and “Hey You, Grow A Beard” calling for both men and women around the world to grow their beards with pride.
