SURFERBLOOD to Release New Album, 'Pythons', 6/11

Related: Surferblood

West Palm Beach rock band Surfer Blood have set a June 11th release date for their new album and Warner Bros Records debut Pythons.

Front man JP Pitts, Thomas Fekete (guitar), Kevin Williams (bass) and Tyler Schwarz (drums) recorded Pythons in Los Angeles with producer Gil Norton (Pixies, Echo and the Bunnymen.) Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Guided By Voices) mixed the album.

Pythons is the follow-up to Surfer Blood's critically-acclaimed debut album Astro Coast, which earned spots on "best of" lists from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Filter, Paste, NME and the BBC. NPR's Bob Boilen called Astro Coast his "favorite album of 2010" and declared Surfer Blood to be "America's best new pop band."

After a string of West Coast fan shows starting later this month, Surfer Blood will hit SXSW, followed by a two-month long North American run supporting Foals. Full tour dates are below.
