Surfer Blood

In 2010, Surfer Blood catapulted into the spotlight with their debut album, Astro Coast, which landed spots on pretty much everyone’s “best of” list (Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Filter, Paste, NME, BBC, etc.). Two weeks ago, the California rock band finally announced the follow-up to that release, Pythons, and just today, they shared with fans the new album’s release date.

Set for release on June 11, 2013 via Warner Bros. Records, Pythons was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Gil Norton (Pixies, Echo and the Bunnymen) and marks the band’s major label debut. As reported earlier today, Surfer Blood will be supporting Foals on their upcoming North American tour, but before that kicks off, the group will be playing a West Coast club headlining tour, including a performance at the Echo here in LA on March 1st.

Advanced tickets for that show are sold out, but according to The Echo’s website, limited tickets may be available at the door, so I suggest you cross your fingers and head out to The Echo on March 1st.
