About Surfer Blood
Surfer Blood makes waves in the music industry (Created August 2, 2013)
How many bands do you know that got their start in someone's college dorm room, apartment or back alley garage? But how many of them have, inside a three-year span, have had the same success as Surfer Blood?
Born (you guessed it) inside the dorm of guitarist/vocalist John Paul Pitts, Surfer Blood also includes guitarist Thomas Fekete, bassist Kevin Williams and drummer Tyler Schwarz. Though they had already drummed up some solid support, the foursome quietly released their debut album "Astro Coast" on indie label Kanine Records back in 2010. The secret wasn't safe for long. The project garnered critical acclaim from Internet sites and radio stations, and the single "Swim" was ranked 37th best track on Pitchfork's 100 Best Songs of the Year.
Surfer Blood made bigger waves in the industry by playing the SXSW NPR music party, the ATP music festival and the San Muguel Primavera Sound Festival. They rounded out the summer by appearing at the Splendour in the Grass in Australia and Summer Sonic in Tokyo, and were chosen to perform at the ATP Nightmare Before Christmas festival in Minehead, England.
On October 25, 2011, Surfer Blood released the "Tarot Classics" EP, and its first single "Miranda" debuted on Pitchfork. Another track, "I'm Not Ready," was named NPR's Song of the Day on December 8, capping a big year for the band that saw them open for the Pixies during their Doolittle Lost Cities Tour in 2011. By January 2012, Surfer Blood had also booked an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
Surfer Blood will soon release another album, set to be called "Pythons." They released the first single, "Weird Shapes," back in January.
