After a long hiatus, Queens' finest, The Beets, are back in action and touring the country, starting tonight with a show at Brooklyn's Silent Barn with Sea Lions. They're also sharing a new music video for "Doing As I Do," from 2011's killer full-length Let the Poison Out. Filmed in pre-Hurricane Sandy Rockaway Beach, the whimsical clip was directed by the band's go-to artistic collaborator Matt Volz.

About the record:
Hardly Art is proud to present to the world Let the Poison Out, the third masterpiece from the Beets. It’s the album the Beets have been working up to for years. While the title references the band’s idol and unofficial mascot, Howard Stern, Let the Poison Out is really an album about getting everything out of your system. All of the Beets elements are here: jangly acoustic guitar; simply captured, sing-along lyrics about being yourself, being free, not fitting in; and an undercurrent of restless energy. The Beets love the Ramones. The Beets love MAD magazine. The Beets love Queens and Keds. Now is the time for you to love the Beets.
