BBR Music Group/BMG’s Wheelhouse Records’ rowdy outliers LOCASH are “gonna drive until the map turns blue” on their next single, “Beach Boys,” featuring The Beach Boys’ co-founder Mike Love and longtime band member Bruce Johnston. Ahead of its March 4 release, the legendary musicians invited LOCASH to join them onstage Sunday night (2/6) during their sold-out show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, to debut the windows-down anthem. 

“The day we wrote ‘Beach Boys,’ I remember Chris [Lucas] and I dreaming of recording it with The Beach Boys,” shares LOCASH’s Preston Brust. “We never imagined that they’d hear it, let alone get the chance to lay down our parts with Mike [Love] and Bruce [Johnston] and actually feel like we were a part of a group that we’ve idolized for so long! It’s crazy how it all became a reality and now the fun really begins!”

Incorporating one of American music’s most classic “I Get Around” hooks, the pair originally released “Beach Boys” as a solo version on their WOODS & WATER – EP – as spotted in American SongwriterBillboardE! News, and Entertainment Tonight, among others – before connecting with the icons. Written by LOCASH’s Chris Lucas and Preston Brust, alongside Dallas Wilson, Jared Mullins, Brian Wilson, and Mike Love, the sunny, go with the flow melodies and breezy vocal harmonies has all of the salt-kissed, Country-rocking energy of The Beach Boys mixed with LOCASH’s signature backwoods style. 

“We had a blast collaborating with Chris [Lucas] and Preston [Brust] of LOCASH!” said The Beach Boys’ Mike Love. “The song is so hooky – I can’t get it out of my head. I love mixing it up! Country Rock met Surf Rock and created a fun summer hit!”

Presented by MTN DEW and inspired by their wild-and-free EP, LOCASH further announced yesterday (2/7) the ultimate getaway with the WOODS & WATER TOUR 2022. Launching March 4 at Lori’s Roadhouse in West Chester, OH, the headliner stops crisscross with major music festival appearances all over the world – including Stagecoach (Indio, CA), CountryFest Los Cabos (Baja California Sur, Mexico), and The Long Road Festival (Lutterworth, England) – as more dates will be announced soon.
