West Palm Beach rock band Surfer Blood have announced the release of new album and major label debut Pythons, out this summer via Warner Bros Records. The first song off the album, entitled "Weird Shapes" premiered today on the band's website www.surferblood.com. "'Weird Shapes' is a left of center pop song about someone who is about to go through a manic episode," front man JP Pitts explains. "It's one of the most dynamic songs we've ever written."

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."

Surfer Blood will be previewing songs from Pythons during a west coast run next month. The intimate, small club fan shows lead up to their attendance at this year's SXSW Music Conference in March - full tour dates below.
