Ben Katzman Shares “Tears On A Beach”

Legendary underground rock hero and Survivor Season 46 finalist Ben Katzman announces his anticipated new album, Tears on the Beach, which features an array indie rock staples like Mannequin Pussy, illuminati hotties, Guerilla Toss and Colleen Green, as well as ex-Survivor contestants like Season 45 winner Dee Valladares.

Today, Katzman shares the album’s lead single and title track “Tears on the Beach,” which features guest vocals from Shannon and the Clams’ Shannon Shaw and a rip-roaring trumpet solo from Survivor hall of famer “Coach” Benjamin Wade “The Dragon Slayer.” The song finds Katzman using the song’s soaring choruses and soulful vibes to reflect on feeling lost after the voting out of his best friend on the island. Each track on the album delves into the root causes of his trauma and uncovers valuable lessons learned amidst the emotional turmoil.

‘Tears On The Beach’ is a song about finding the strength to claw your way out of emotional rock bottom. Whether it’s losing a close friend, or feeling a loss of control in your personal story, ‘Tears’ is ultimately about recognizing that you have control over the spiritual fire within,” Katzman explains. “The song itself features some very close friends old and new who have been part of this crazy journey. The same way Charlie picked me back up in Fiji, the friends who appear on this track picked me back up whenever I was feeling spun out.

In the spirit of the album and the artist community that Katzman has built around himself throughout the years, he will be re-joining Guerilla Toss on second guitar on their upcoming tour with Primus. All dates below.
