Surfer Blood to play Biltmore

Florida indie rockers Surfer Blood will continue their globe-trotting tour on Tuesday as they take on Vancouver’s Biltmore Cabaret.  The five piece will co-headline alongside Brooklyn’s latest export, The Drums.

Surfer Blood, known for their scuzzy, reverb drenched, power-pop are well versed in the art of live performance, having spent the last year powering through Europe and North America. The band will be playing tracks from their well received debut Astro Coast, as well as showcasing some new tracks honed on the road.

Surfer Blood’s relationship with The Drums stretches back to when frontman John Paul used to fraternize with The Drums’ guitarist Jacob Graham while studying in Orlando. It was Jacob who handed Surfer Blood’s demos to Kanine records, the label that would go on to sign the promising five piece.
The pair have shared dates together all year, and despite their busy schedules, neither band are showing any signs of flagging. Expect this to be a night of high energy, revivalist thrills.
