RIAA platinum certified indie rock band Surf Curse exposed a new fantastic album “Magic Hour”
The highly anticipated album includes energetic singles “Self Portrait,” “Lost Honor,” “TVI,” and the power pop anthem, “Sugar,” the latter of which has already garnered over 6.6M streams worldwide. The band is currently on tour following sold out shows this summer in London, Paris and Berlin, as well as stand out performances at Coachella and Primavera’s debut LA incarnation last month.
Jacob Rubeck says: “Normally when you hear people talk about what went into the making of their albums they say ‘blood sweat and tears’ but for us it was love, sweat and laughs,” “Magic Hour is not only our ode to rock music but our bond together as bandmates and creatives. We’re excited to share these songs that we’re so proud of and are stoked on the response to the songs we’ve already released.”
2020 saw the band’s breakthrough with the surprise TikTok success of “Freaks,” which has earned over 650M worldwide streams and RIAA platinum certification more than eight years after its original release. Recorded at New York City’s iconic Electric Lady Studios, MAGIC HOUR now sees the band testing the boundaries of their seasoned indie rock approach, exploring a wide range of sonic styles and colors with founders Rattigan and Rubeck now joined by new members Noah Kohll (guitars) and Henry Dillon (bass). The newly expanded lineup allows Surf Curse to push their already ambitious songcraft even further than ever before, spanning the blistering album-opener, “Arrow,” to the somber rock of “No Tomorrows.”
Surf Curse is celebrating MAGIC HOUR with an epic world headline tour, starting off across the Atlantic for a major EU/UK tour, followed by a North American headline kicking off with a pair of special Halloween shows at Las Vegas, NV’s sold out AREA15 (October 30) and San Diego, CA’s SOMA (October 31) and then traveling through Reno, NV for a sold out show at The Holland Project and a hometown finale at Hollywood, CA’s famed Hollywood Palladium on December 17. Special guests throughout the North American tour include Toner, Grumpy, and others to be announced.
