Today we are pleased to announce that Surfer Blood have signed with Joyful Noise for the release of their new album “1000 Palms”, out May 12, 2015.
1000 Palms is a return to Surfer Blood’s DIY ethos. Abandoning the big time studio, the band decided to head back home to self-record and self-produce their third album. Free of major-label-influence, Surfer Blood have created a uniquely compelling album, unlike anything in their catalog.
The opening track from 1000 Palms, titled “Grand Inquisitor”, has just been secretly released to Joyful Noise VIP Members on 541 “Lathe-Cut CDs”. This 5” hybrid format will play on any manual turntable, as well as in CD players/computers. Check out the instructional video here.
This crazy lathe-cut CD was released as our February “Mystery Single”, and is not available for individual sale (but we bet you can find a leak somewhere).
