Born in a South Berkeley living room during the summer of 2009 out of a need for speed, intensity and melody, Beau Navire has worked ceaselessly towards crafting a sound that is both equal parts beautiful and bruising.

Named for a work by nineteenth-century French poet, Charles Baudelaire, the name speaks to the duality of nature itself—the direct result of which is an ever-developing presentation of candid chaos; the beauty and brutality of life. Since their inception, the band has released two LPs, three splits, a demo tape and played in ten different countries, rolling with a momentum as powerful and persistent as the sea itself.
