In October, Joyful Noise will be issuing a special vinyl-only Surfer Blood album of covers – a limited edition of 1000 copies – available only through mail order and at upcoming tour dates.
“This one-time vinyl pressing features Surfer Blood covering some wildly disparate artists like Outkast, Pavement, Cream, Mudhoney, Modern English, and of course Polaris (aka, the theme-song from The Adventures of Pete & Pete).It is limited to 1000 foil-numbered copies on amber vinyl with black splatter, and includes instant download of MP3 and WAV.
This release is not available via record stores. The only way to get your hands on this bad boy is to order from JNR, or catch the band on tour.”

Covers follows Surfer Blood’s fourth and most ambitious album yet, Snowdonia. On Covers and Snowdonia, founders John Paul Pitts (vocals, guitar) and Tyler Schwarz (drums) are joined by talented new bandmembers Michael McCleary (guitar, vocals) and Lindsey Mills (bass, vocals). All four bandmembers are long-time friends and alumni of the same high school in West Palm Beach, Florida. Surfer Blood are one of the best young indie-rock bands around.
