Barsuk Records is proud to announce Nada Surf's Spring 2008 tour.
Starting at SXSW, the tour will see the band supporting their
forthcoming full-length release "Lucky" due out on February 5th, 2008.
Nada Surf have already sold out a short five-date run in late
January/early February that will take them down the west coast and end
in New York City on February 8th. Following these dates, the band heads
to Europe for a headlining tour before returning for SXSW. During the
spring American tour they will be joined by The Little Ones in March,
and What Made Milwaukee Famous in April, with a one-off co-headlining
gig with Superdrag at Terminal 5 in NYC on April 11th.
Nada Surf's fifth release to date, "LUCKY," was co-produced by the band
and John Goodmanson (Death Cab For Cutie, Blonde Redhead,
Sleater-Kinney). Many great artists make guest appearances on the
record, including: Death Cab's Ben Gibbard, Ed Harcourt, John Roderick
of the Long Winters, and guitarist Phil Wandscher of Jesse Sykes & the
Critical acclaim has followed Nada Surf through their career. Most
recently, "MOJO" called "The Weight is a Gift" a "21st century pop
masterpiece," while "Esquire" said their "poignant anthems" are "full
of airtight melodies and huge twists." "Rolling Stone," weighed in,
saying: "The band's tunes achieve a kind of sleight-of-hand majesty,"
while "Alternative Press" exclaimed the record is "nearly flawless."
"Entertainment Weekly" called it "astoundingly good," and "USA Today"
said Caws' lyrics "have both mystery and a universal touch."
