Presented by Rdio and RootMusic BandPage, the full concert will be webcast live on their YouTube channel. For more details and the latest updates, fans can RSVP to the event on Facebook.
The band’s highly anticipated new album, The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy, has been hailed as “tremendous – full of big, blooming rock that practically glows with generosity,” by NPR’s All Songs Considered. Fans can listen to the entire album starting on January 23 at Spinner.com. “Waiting For Something,” one of the many explosive and melodic songs on the new record, just recently premiered on Stereogum and is available as a free download HERE. The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy, which also features the track “When I Was Young, will be available everywhere on January 24 but can be pre-ordered now at iTunes.
Nada Surf are also set to kick off their national tour on March 20 in Los Angeles, CA. The band have confirmed An Horse to be the opening act on all the dates, which will have the bands rolling cross-country and wrapping up in Washington, DC on April 10. The dates follow select east and west coast gigs in late January. The band will appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on January 30, to play a new song on TV and an old fan favorite which will get posted on latenightwithjimmyfallon.com the next day.
Stars is Nada Surf’s seventh record, and fourth for Seattle indie Barsuk, following the successful and critically lauded Let Go (2003), The Weight is a Gift (2005), Lucky (2007) and their self-released covers record if i had a hifi (2010). This is their first album of new material in four years, and unlike all of the other Nada Surf records, Stars was made with a distinct attempt to capture their live sound. “We’ve always played faster and a little harder live,” says vocalist/guitarist Matthew Caws, “but we’d play so carefully in the studio. So with this album, we made a conscious decision to preserve what it felt like in the practice room, when you play with that new-song energy.”
Nada Surf’s lineup for 15 years has been and still is Matthew Caws (vocals, guitar), Daniel Lorca (bass) and Ira Elliot (drums), though this time, as on if i had a hifi and the tour that followed, they invited guitarist Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Death of Samantha) to join in the proceedings. Chris Shaw (Wilco, Brendan Benson, Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Super Furry Animals) was brought in to produce and record.
