Nada Surf has announced plans for a major U.S. tour. The headline dates begin January 14 at Seattle, WA’s Neptune Theatre and then travel through early February (see itinerary below). Support throughout comes from Apex Manor (January 14-19), Lees Of Memory (January 27), and Aaron Lee Tasjan (solo - January 29-February 1); additional special guests will be announced. In the meantime, Nada Surf will visit Richmond, VA’s historic theater The National on Sunday, November 10 for a very special live recording of Public Radio’s Full Disclosure with Roben Farzad – limited tickets remain available HERE. For complete tour details and ticket information, please visit www.nadasurf.com.


Throughout its career, 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’s ongoing growth as both songwriter and human being. 2018 saw the New York City-based 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. Meanwhile, Nada Surf is currently working on the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed eighth studio recording, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, and live album, PEACEFUL GHOSTS (recorded alongside Vienna’s ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra and Potsdam’s renowned Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg), due sometime in 2020.

Nada Surf is: Matthew Caws (guitar, vocals), Daniel Lorca (bass) and Ira Elliot (drums).
Apex Manor
Apex Manor
Ross Flournoy founded Apex Manor after the 2009 demise of The Broken West. Named after his Los Angeles “zen place,” Apex Manor was the idyllic apartment of his close friend and long-time collaborator Adam Vine.

Having relocated from the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles to Pasadena, Flournoy was enjoying suburban tranquility, but his car wouldn’t start and he found himself isolated. He whiled away the days cleaning the house, sitting on the porch, and splitting tallboys with the gardeners who worked nearby. And battling a case of writer’s block.

Enter an unlikely source of inspiration: an online songwriting contest. NPR’s Monitor Mix was soliciting original songs from readers, giving the prospective songwriter one weekend to write, record, and submit. Flournoy decided to give it a go and set about writing and recording at home. At least he would be doing something with his time. The song, “Under the Gun,” turned out to be about the process itself.

Now feeling inspired for the first time in months, Flournoy began writing at a feverish clip, penning more than 25 songs, nearly a third of which were co-written by Adam Vine. Flournoy then teamed up with former Broken West bandmate Brian Whelan to record some proper demos, and Apex Manor was born.
