CELEBRATING THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY OF LET GO
Nada Surf have added new dates to their tour celebrating the 15th anniversary of the seminal album Let Go. This new round of dates will take them from Seattle on May 9th through Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas, Austin and Atlanta. The shows are billed as ‘An Evening with Nada Surf, Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Let Go.’ The band will perform Let Go, take a break, and return for a second set. There will be no support on these shows. The full list ofLet Go tour dates can be found below.
Let Go was initially released by EMI/Labels in Europe and Heavenly Records in the UK in September 2002, and was then released by Barsuk in the US in February 2003.
Let Go, which features Nada Surf classics such as “Inside of Love,” “Blonde on Blonde,” “Hi Speed Soul” and “The Way You Wear Your Head” was heralded by the music press (except for Pitchfork, which gave the album a 3.8/10), and is recognized for rejuvenating the band’s career after an awkward parting with their initial label, Elektra Records.

Praise for Let Go:
One of the 50 best albums of 2002 – MOJO
“12 literate songs of consumptive love lives in imbalance, full of big melodies and enough wonder at the world to turn frowns upside down every time.” – MOJO
“Virtually every song on Let Go hits its mark in one way or another, dispensing consistently remarkable moments that range from the sweet minor-key swoon of “Blizzard Of ’77” and “Neither Heaven Nor Space” to the sleek, bouncy new wave of “Hi-Speed Soul.” Examining relationships, fruit-fly swarms, and Cheap Trick lyrics with equally keen understanding, all while dispensing a disarming array of subtly endearing hooks, Nada Surf completes the evolution into a smart pop marvel before most listeners knew it had begun.” – AV Club
“A dozen near-perfect pop songs, each one teeming with joyful desperation.” – Entertainment Weekly (A-)
