ATTN - Nada Surf fans - New covers record and spring tour on the way!


Nada Surf “hang ten” with new covers record and spring tour
By Jay Ziegler

Only six days into 2010, New York indie sensations Nada Surf waste virtually no time at all. After wrapping up a worldwide tour of the band’s most recent record, 2008’s Lucky, New York rockers Nada Surf recently announced that they’ve prepared a brand new record of cover songs, deftly titled If I Had A Hi-Fi, due out this Spring. With the content ranging from contemporaries of the band to virtually unknown lesser groups, Nada Surf frontman Matthew Caws had this to say in regards to the newest harmonic record:

“We really just wanted to do it organically, whatever we felt like covering in the moment, rather than trying to sum up our influences or something. It’s whatever we were excited about in the months before making it. And I think we got to everything we wanted to.”

Hi-Fi was recorded last September in Austin, TX in a three week span with longtime collaborator Louie Lino. While the formal setlist hasn’t been officially released yet, the band has teased with a few tunes that will be included on the record, including renditions of The Moody Blues’ “Question”, The Soft Pack’s “Bright Side”, and Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence”. As for the the basis for the title? Well, according to the band, it’s both a hearkening back to the band’s early days, as well as a musical palindrome. The plot thickens…

In support of the release, Nada Surf has also announced an extensive world tour. Kicking off this excellent jaunt in late March, Nada Surf will perform three nights in New York, with each featuring the band performing all of its most recent albums in their entirety: Let Go, The Weight Is A Gift and Lucky, whilst performing songs from the upcoming Hi-Fi as well. Start the spring off right this year, wash away those winter flakes and crank up those marvelous melodies. Surf’s up indeed, and it’s gonna be a blast.

Fan pre-sale tickets can be found here. A public onsale begins Friday, January 8th via Ticketmaster.com.
