Nada Surf release new single, "So Much Love"

Nada Surf has announced today's premiere of "So Much Love," the latest iconic single from their long-awaited new LP, Never Not Together. The song is available for streaming and download now.

"'So Much Love' is a song that celebrates good will between people," says Nada Surf's Matthew Caws. "Sometimes it can be hard to remember that it's there. But it's all around us. A little tolerance and acceptance can be built on. Small gestures add up. We're good at love and being kind. It comes naturally to us, but so do other things. You just have to keep looking for the right way to lean." 08 Jan 2020

The Prom "Demos 2003" Out Today

We are honored to announce the release of The Prom's Demos 2003 EP – a collection of previously unreleased tracks by the indie-rock favorites of early aughts' Pacific Northwest.

The group of melancholic Seattle-based indie rockers were likened to everyone from Grandaddy to Paul McCartney to their Omaha, NE hometown contemporaries, Bright Eyes. Throughout the early 2000s, they toured with Death Cab for Cutie, The Long Winters, Carissa's Wierd, Starflyer 59, and became known for lending irreverent wit and infectious energy to their live shows, contrasting with the beautiful sincerity and often somber tones of their music.

Friends and loved ones were heartbroken by news of bandleader James Mendenhall's unexpected passing in January of 2019. James was an exceptionally talented pianist, composer and songwriter, and a wonderful human being.

The Prom Demos 2003 EP is available digitally everywhere. Watch the official lyric video for EP track "Rock Lies", created by band member Justin Wilmore using original 2003 tour footage. 04 Oct 2019
