With their new album "Lucky" slated to be released next month, the Nada Surf boys are making an SF stop during their newly announced tour. The press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nada Surf Announces Spring 2008 Tour
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 Sweet Hereafter.
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."
