VIDEO: Surfbort Releases Video for 'Never Gonna Be What You Want Me to Be'

Surfbort’s latest album, Keep on Truckin’, was released on October 11, 2021.

A sload has happened for Surfbort since they dropped their beautifully nihilistic yet totally fun album "Keep on Truckin.' And today, Surfbort drops their latest video for the new single "Never Gonna Be What You Want Me to Be." The track is about my diary entries and being lost and discovering myself, says singer Dani Miller.

"Realizing you can't change someone and they can't change you. We had a total blast recording the song with Chris Coady. The video isn't a literal interpretation of the song. We recently got back from tour. We have so much fun playing shows and dancing and screaming with you around the world. Here is a little taste of our latest travels. Thanks to all the new friends we have met along the way."

Speaking of tour, Surfbort is about to embark on a headlining September run, along
with a string of dates with punk rock legends The Descendents, making a stop to play with My Chemical Romance, Riot Fest, Desert Daze & Four Chord Festivals!

Surfbort's latest release, Keep on Truckin', was released on October 11, 2021. This full-length is part of the recently launched partnership between legendary producer, composer and philanthropist, Linda Perry and SoundCloud/Repost.

In an age of division where presentation has trumped content, where billionaires blast into space as the wealth gap increases and the entire society teeters on the spectrum of addiction, Keep on Truckin' reminds us that we're all geniuses and idiots, and that love, humor, magic, and the human sitting next to you are the only antidote to the capitalist hellscape," says singer Dani Miller.
