beatcontrol.jpgAlmost two years after the release of their sophomore album, Bottoms of Barrels Tilly and the Wall are excited to share their newest bit of musical mayhem with the world in the form of a single called “Beat Control.” The single will be released in two formats: it will be available at all digital service providers and via a limited edition 7” which can be purchased from Team Love’s website or the band’s very own merch table during their upcoming tour. The single hits all digital service providers on March 4th.

Additionally, the stellar video for “Beat Control” is now up and ready for multiple viewings. Directed by SSION (the folks responsible for the cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Fever to Tell), the video is an exuberant whirlwind of hip-shaking madness. Filled with a neon glow, a dancefloor on fire, and enough moves to inspire a dance contest, “Beat Control” is a certified party anthem with a video to prove it.

“Beat Control” will not be available on the band’s forthcoming LP, due for release on Team Love this summer, so be sure to pick this up! The tracklisting for the single:
1. Beat Control

2. Cacophony

3. L3t the B34t C0ns013 Yov (Pewep Merix)

Tilly and the Wall will be hitting the road as a seven-piece on February 28th with Team Lovers Capgun Coup
