13 Jul 2023

We are excited to announce the forthcoming limited edition, The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys, an anthology of one of the world's greatest and most influential bands. Their first official book is being published in a limited edition of only 500 signed copies worldwide. Today, the Deluxe copies are available for pre-order, of which only 415 will ever be created. 
'I think it's the heart that you put into what you're doing that's important. Each member of the Beach Boys puts their whole heart and soul into what they do. Few families are together spiritually and emotionally over art.' - Dennis Wilson

The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys captures the group's astounding rise from Hawthorne garage band to internationally renowned act, covering the release of their first single, 'Surfin'', up to their 1980 Independence Day concert at the National Mall in Washington D.C., for an audience of over half a million people. Through their unique sound, incredibly complex harmonies, and use of innovative recording techniques, The Beach Boys continue to inspire musicians. What's more, they've become woven into the cultural fabric of America. This edition documents how it happened.
'The environment in which we grew up and the things we chose to sing about primarily, which were the beautiful things about growing up in Southern California - the lovely girls, the lovely cars, the lovely weather and the lovely beaches - it was like an endless summer.' - Mike Love
Told through the words of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston, and accompanied by rare and iconic photographs and historical ephemera, the result is an extraordinary autobiography from America's biggest band.
Joining them are a host of contributors who have been involved with or inspired by the band's music, including Peter Blake, Lindsey Buckingham, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Ray Davies, Bob Dylan, Def Leppard, the Flaming Lips, Bobby Gillespie, David Lee Roth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Jim Kerr, Roger McGuinn, Graham Nash, Jimmy Page, Carly Simon, Pete Townshend, Rufus Wainwright, Thom Yorke, and many more yet to be announced.
Each Deluxe copy of The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys is hand-signed by Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston.
