Beacon's fourth record in Limited Edition Gold Marble Vinyl. Limited to 500 Copies.
Perceptions of time and its effects have changed dramatically in recent memory. At some point in the past, four years might have been an average wait between new albums for a busy touring band like Beacon. But in our post-quarantine, perma-pandemic reality, four years can contain lifetimes.
It was during this strange, illusive period that Beacon wrote Along the Lethe, their fourth full-length record following 2018's Gravity Pairs. The Lethe is one of the five rivers of the underworld in Greek mythology. The newly dead who drank from its waters lost all memory of their earthly lives. Composed and produced largely in quarantine, Along the Lethe is an album as much about the allure of forgetting tragedy as it is the need to maintain our connections to the past.

- Until Next Time
- Pay My Debts
- I’m The Answer
