Florida based rockers Surfer Blood will return with new album 1000 Palms on May 12 via Joyful Noise Recordings. This is the band’s first record on Joyful Noise, and it marks their return to their DIY ethos. They abandoned the big time studio recordings of their last record and returned home to Florida to self-record and self-produce the record.

“I Can’t Explain” is posted below, along with a recent live acoustic performance that they did for for 91x San Diego. You can also find “Dorian” and “Grand Inquisitor,” the two other songs shared so far from 1000 Palms Read the rest of this entry »
