Surfer Blood returns with their second full-length album, Pythons, out June 11 on Warner Bros./Kanine Records. The band will tour with Foals this spring in advance of the release. The “Demon Dance” video was directed by Malia James of Dum Dum Girls.
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. Astro Coast charmed critics and fans alike, and put them on the same stage as bands like the Pixies and Interpol.
Produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) Pythons maintains the same dreamy surf rock sensibility of the band’s debut and sees them buffing their pop “We had never worked with a producer before and I think Gil’s biggest strength was taking all of our ideas and helping us arrange them in a way that made sense,” Pitts explains.
