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. Nada Surf’s ninth studio recording and first in almost four years, NEVER NOT TOGETHER arrives via Barsuk / City Slang on February 7. Pre-orders are available 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.”

PRE-ORDER NEVER NOT TOGETHER

NEVER NOT TOGETHER was heralded last November by the crashing new single, “Something I Should Do,” now available via streaming and download and accompanied by an official video streaming now at the official Nada Surf YouTube channel. “As you’d probably expect from this consistently reliable band, [‘Something I Should Do’ is] catchy and instantly likable,” – BrooklynVegan enthused.

“Looking For You” – available now at all DSPs and streaming services – followed in December, joined by a unique animated video filmed by the members of Nada Surf and streaming now via YouTube.

NEVER NOT TOGETHER sees Nada Surf – Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca, Ira Elliot, and their longtime friend and collaborator, Louie Lino – continuing to pursue their humanistic vision of the world through hooky, catchy rock songs with sharply drawn, yet tenderly felt, lyrics. Recorded earlier this year at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, the wide-ranging collection revels in the group’s ability to evoke and reflect grand and intricately wrought emotions, whether through sweeping guitar solos or hushed-whisper vocals. Songs like the spectacular “Looking For You” and the shimmering mid-tempo “Just Wait” are empathetic, warm, and powerfully urgent, marked by Caws’ ongoing lyrical quest for 21st century love and connection.

“We’re all together, and that’s just the way it is, and the way it always will be,” says Caws. “That’s the sacred truth of it.”

Long hailed for their unique ability to create deep emotional bonds with their live audience, Nada Surf will celebrate NEVER NOT TOGETHER with a major world tour. U.S. headline dates begin January 14 at Seattle, WA’s Neptune Theatre and then travel through early February (see itinerary below). The band will be joined throughout the tour by an array of special guests, including Apex Manor, John Vanderslice, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Why Bonnie, and The Lees of Memory.

From there, Nada Surf will cross the Atlantic for an eagerly awaited European tour, resuming in Cambridge, England’s J2 on February 25. The tour includes stops in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Additional dates – including top-billed festival appearances – will be announced soon. For complete tour details and ticket information, please visit www.nadasurf.com.

Founded in 1992, Nada Surf has only grown more creative and resourceful as time has marched on, each consecutive release notable for the quality of its craft as well as Caws’ ongoing growth as both songwriter and human being. 2018 saw the band celebrating the 15th anniversary of their seminal Barsuk Records label debut album, LET GO. In addition, Nada Surf recently marked the 20th anniversary of 1999’s NORTH 6TH STREET, a long-unavailable collection of early demos recorded upon the band’s initial formation, by making it available on digital services for the first time. NEVER NOT TOGETHER follows 2016’s acclaimed eighth studio recording, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, and live album, PEACEFUL GHOSTS (recorded alongside Potsdam’s renowned Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg).
