New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Perceived as a Brooklyn based punk band, SURFBORT is proving their cult cool translating coast to coast. SURFBORT's live experience is visceral and confrontational. Their feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance, they radiate love and friendship. Their music continues to hail acclaim from peers and journalists alike:
of Bikini Kill, Pussy Galore, Patti Smith and X" - The Guardian.
"Machine gun volley of two-minute shards of sound that pummel you into a giddy mess while flicking two fingers to authority" - Crack Magazine.
Now SURFBORT is getting ready to release their new album Keep On Truckin' in October as part of the recently launched partnership between legendary producer, composer and philanthropist, Linda
Perry and SoundCloud/Repost. In the lead up to the release of Keep On Truckin' SURFBORT will be hosting a pre-save give away contest where three lucky fans who pre-save the album will be sent a care package from SURFBORT. The band just recently shot a video for their latest single "FML" featuring comedian and band leader/drummer of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen who walks around doing good deeds all day then transforms into each member of the band saving them from their extreme depression. Today the audio for "FML" premiered on The Matt Wilkinson
Show on Apple Music.
When asked about SURBFORT's latest single "FML" lead singer Dani Miller said, "We have all had extremely low days especially with drug use where we had suicidal thoughts. FML is finding connection and humor in such a dark experience we wanted to let people know you aren't alone in feeling suicidal. My aunt jumped off Niagara Falls unaliving herself and my dad has always passed on the idea that no matter how long it takes, a day, a week, 2 years it will get better and even a 30 min phone call with a friend can change the perspective and save a life. In the song it says. "I can't eat. I can't sleep. Might as well go die," that is a super real headspace when you feel suicidal and we wanted to communicate that and say it's okay to feel that low and not want to be yourself, but life gets better. You never know what a person is going through and even the happiest presenting people kill themselves so it's never anyone's fault, but I would give everything to be able to be there for my aunt and help her see that her existence matters in this world. FML satirizes the extreme self-centeredness we've all experienced during extreme depression."
SURFBORT Album listening 'Pool Party' in a secret suburban location will celebrate the release of the band's forthcoming album, Keep On Truckin'. Front woman Dani Miller will put out a call to action on social media, prompting fans to submit a video of them dressed like her and wearing her makeup while performing their favorite SURFBORT song. A handpicked group of fans will win the chance to attend the listening party (20 people) and be featured in a music video captured at the party; the best "Dani" will win a prize. We will leverage all fan submission videos to create a supercut for social media to drive hype and awareness to the album.
