Wannabe 90's light-alternative artist Surfer Blood have announced that they're about to head up to the newish artist crux - the fight-or-flight sophomore album and tour. This sophomore curse has felled many a band before them, but they're ready and willing to fight. Their second album, entitled Pythons, will be released on June 11 on Warner Bros. Shaped by veteran producer Gil Norton (Pixies), can Surfer Blood break the sophomore spell and sustain their success? Only time will tell. The record's first single, "Demon Dance", has just been released, with a video directed by Dum Dum Girls' Malia James:
To promote the new album, Surfer Blood is hitting the road with Foals and Silversun Pickups (in Pittsburgh). Their tour begins at the end of April in New Orleans, and moves through New York, Tampa, Cincinatti, Columbus, Asheville, Chicago, Boston, Sasquatch Festival, and St. Louis before ending at the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco.
