On February 5, 2008, Nada Surf will release its fifth LP, Lucky, on Barsuk Records, co-produced by the band and John Goodmanson. Recorded at Seattle’s Robert Lang Studios, a studio whose walls would surely write a bestseller (Nirvana and Foo Fighters have laid down tracks there), we’re told that Lucky promises to be “filled with songs of restlessness, longing and the elusiveness of love. Yet, in its inimitable way, the band beautifully counterbalances its signature lyrical wistfulness with its singular musical buoyancy.”

On October 13, Nada Surf began its fall US tour in Philadelphia and will wrap on November 2 in Baltimore with Sea Wolf supporting. Fans are invited to visit the band’s official MySpace page to hear the new track “See These Bones.”
