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."
