Surfer Blood Cover The Clash, Tour This Fall

Surfer Blood Cover The Clash, Headlining North American Tour This Fall. "Pythons" now out on Kanine Records.

Surfer Blood have released a cover of The Clash’s “Spanish Bombs,” taken off their legendary 1979 album, London Calling. The band’s cover can be viewed on YouTube,  highlighting a catchy jangling surf rock take on the classic punk-rock anthem.

The band’s collaboration comes in anticipation of a full headlining North American tour this Fall, which will take Surfer Blood on the road with Team Spirit and Andy Boay, including a set at this weekend’s Riot Fest in Chicago.

Originally the dorm-room project of guitarist/vocalist John Paul Pitts, the band—which also includes guitarist Thomas Fekete, bassist Kevin Williams and drummer Tyler Schwarz—released their debut album Astro Coast in 2010 on Kanine Records.

Now with this year’s Pythons, Surfer Blood have established their dreamy surf rock sensibility and buffed their pop gems into dynamic, polished tracks. Produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) and recorded at Los Angeles’ EASTWEST Studios, famous for producing The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds among others,
