Nada Surf announces new live album . . . ·13 Sep 2016·
Following the release of their album You Know Who You Are earlier this year, New York-based Nada Surf are set to release a new live album entitled Peaceful Ghosts Live With Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg, which is due out Oct 28th.
Peaceful Ghosts came about after Nada Surf frontman and main songwriter Matthew Caws received a surprise email asking about a potential collaborative orchestral project with the Austrian national radio station FM4. A little over a year later, the result is a beautiful recording, culled from two live performances in Vienna and Potsdam early this summer, that covers a broad stylistic range, from James Bond at one extreme to the joy and wonder of Walt Disney at the other, with a whole range of surprises in between. Classics such as the delicate melancholy of "Blonde On Blonde" unfold to surprising new places with soaring countermelodies, while new favorites from You Know Who You Are, including "Rushing" and "Out of the Dark", showcase the power and majesty of the original without losing the lyrical and musical subtlety that has become the hallmark of Nada Surf for the past twenty years.

Nada Surf release live album . . . ·14 Aug 2015·
This just in from Nada Surf: "On Saturday March 24th, 2012, we drove into Seattle, Washington, one of our favorite cities, to play at the Neptune Theatre (they spell it Brit style). We were in the midst of a US tour in support of The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy. Days before, our longtime friend and frequent producer John Goodmanson told us that the venue was wired for recording, with a whole extra set of cables going from the stage down to the basement. did we want him to record the show? our answer: yes! a few months ago, we asked fans if they'd be interested in a live album. their answer: yes! so we had John mix it and now it's ready. Live at the Neptune Theatre is available to pre-order in a limited edition 3xLP package that includes a show poster from that night, an LP-sized 8-page color booklet, a t-shirt iron-on and a temporary tattoo: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/nadasurf.
"The package will ship in early 2016 but when you pre-order you receive an immediate digital download of the album. it's also available at all digital outlets today. If you order tickets for the November shows in DC, NYC and Toronto you will also receive a free digital download of the album with your ticket confirmation. Bonus!" we hope you enjoy the record, we sure enjoyed making it!
