The Last Lizard/ RIP DIRTY BEACHES 2005-2014

Thank you all for the years of support, it really meant a lot to me. From kitchen dishwasher to globe trotting troubadour, I owe it all to the friends and allies that have housed me, helped me, inspired me, and driven me to the place where I am now.  But most importantly, your support got me here today and I want to take this moment and thank YOU.

I know its not the smartest move...and a painful one as well.  But sometimes, you need to let go in order to grow and move on.  I wanna thank my family, my friends, all past DB contributors for their help and friendship.  It's been a fun and crazy ride...RIP DIRTY BEACHES 2005-2014.

Rest assured there will be new projects and new music COMING SOON 2015. Stay tuned. I will post info up here or twitter/instagram when there is solid news.



Can't wait for what the unknown holds ahead.


  1. Can't wait to hear what is coming next, goodbye Dirty Beaches, your music is tattooed on our hearts for the decades to come.

  2. Keep up the good work, Alex.

    Godspeed, DB.

    The Eternal City will be waiting for your next visit.


  3. Dirty Beaches may be no more but the next chapter is sure to be something nobody is going to want to miss. As long as you keep making art for all the young gods to love then we will all be fine with that.

    All the best Alex. I'm sure the new adventure will be as great as the last!


  4. Sad to hear, i'm sure fantastic things are to come though. Gotta keep movin'. Was great to play with you in Chester '13, a real pleasure.

  6. the definition of bittersweet. still dirty beaches aint going nowhere anytime soon. we'll always have their music to look back to as long as we treasure it like the gems they are. but also lets look toward the future. as long as alex is alve and rocking the spirit will never die. same to all former DB members. keep kicking ass guys/gals. were with you all the way.

  7. hurts to hear. but nothing can stop its narrative.

    Your girl, always

  8. When Dirty Beaches came to Seoul last year, I was there. And I'm sure I also will be there wherever your next things take me.
    Can't wait.

  9. I don't know how I stumbled upon your music. It happened just a couple days ago, and your interviews inspired me to be more open with doing what I had always dreamed of doing, and that is the art of music making.

    Your music didn't click with me then, but what you said and decided to pursue did.

    But now, after hearing Stateless- click, click, click, click, click.

    Thanks for the huge inspiration - you have no idea.

    All the best.


  10. This news hurts.
    Came here to see if there was any new DB to hear.
    The music you made is important,
    so I thank you for it.
    But I wish the announcement was a release of the new beginning,
    rather than the end of another.


  11. Uh... You know Dirty Beaches is just you and your brand, right? With it just starting to get name rec, why tumble back into complete obscurity?

  12. Loved your music. Caught your shows in Chicago whenever possible. DB will be missed, but looking forward to your next chapter....

  13. Thanks so much for everything so far! Cant wait to hear whats next :-)

  14. I love the music!!! My fav!!! hats off

  15. Cheap Taps are one of the necessary things needed in a home. All bathrooms must have Waterfall Taps; there is no bath space without them. These Kitchen Sink Taps help to control the free out flow of water, and even do much more these days www.cheaptap.co.uk/

  16. Thank you friend. Your music set the stage for amazing things to com! I followed you from the start and have soaked up much of your knowledge. You have been a great influence on my work and I vow to carry on in your db style.

  17. I love to capture instant of life with Polaroid cameras. With Polaroid film you have a limited number of shots, you think more before taking the shot, you think quality rather than quantity. polaroid film
