Nada Surf is making a comeback with its sixth album, “The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy,” and now fans have the opportunity to experience it live.
Scheduled to come to Vancouver on Tuesday, May 17, the concert will provide onlookers with an unforgettable experience as guitarist Matthew Caws hopes to send the audience back to their childhood, offering a musical playground of strong beats, chords, hooks, and words.
“Did you ever, as a kid, want to crawl into the speakers?” Caws asks. “I did – here was okay, but there was much better.”
The concert, held at downtown’s Venue Nightclub, will give attendees rock music that gives other genres a run for their money. Serving up a more optimistic tone than previous Nada Surf Albums, Vancouverites will be inspired by this rendition’s extra kick that dares listeners to be just as gutsy as the lyrics.
“With this album we made a conscious decision to preserve what it felt like in the practice room, when you play with that new-song energy. Just embrace it and not worry whether you’re overdoing it,” says Caws.
Bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot complete the group, all drawing from their real life experiences as the catalyst for an album that’s redefining Nada Surf as a truly beloved band.
When: Tuesday May 17 at 8 p.m.
