Originally perceived as a Brooklyn based punk band, SURFBORT is proving their cult cool translates coast to coast. Channeling inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music, their feedback strafed, guitar-shredding music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship. All are welcome in the SURFBORT FREAK FAMILY! Touring with The Black Lips after playing the last Coachella, the band has also performed with The Dickies, Royal Trux, White Fang, The Garden, Martin Rev, Tijuana Panthers, The Mystery Lights, to name a few. The band continues to hail acclaim from peers and journalists alike: “The high degree of authenticity that permeates every aspect of Surfbort’s work makes the band a “distinguishable artistic entity. Live, Surfbort is akin to a stick of dynamite that self-ignites, producing a massive eruption that encapsulates the audience in the most incredible way. The band’s energy feels far from forced; it is raw to the point of being uncontrollably infectious.”- AMPLIPY MAGAZINE. “Machine gun volley of two-minute shards of sound that pummel you into a giddy mess while flicking two fingers to authority” – CRACK MAGAZINE. “The last (only) New York Punk band” – W Magazine. The Guardian compares the band with “The Spirit of Bikini Kill, Pussy Galore, Patti Smith and X”. It’s no wonder Surfbort was one of the handpicked collection of great bands originally signed to Cult Records, the indie label founded by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes/The Voidz. Surfbort was recently picked up by Iconic rock producer Linda Perry to be part of her new partnership with streaming giant SOUNDCLOUD, releasing the new album ‘Keep on Truckin’ in October of 2021. “There probably isn’t a single word in the English language that describes this feeling that Surfbort captures on Keep On Truckin’. It’s like smiling with a fat lip or winking with a black eye or laughing with a set of bruised ribs. The spirit of perseverance, finding some semblance of happiness after taking a mental/spiritual/literal beating. This theme throughout Keep On Truckin’: from the album’s title to “Life’s A Joke” (“Nothing’s going my way today, but it’s okay”) to the closer, “Cheap Glue,” a mid-tempo song that sees Dani vow to do “anything to help you find a solution” to a friend’s broken heart.” – HOLLYWOOD LIFE. The music video for “FML” features 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. Pro-skater, Lizzie Armanto makes her directorial debut and co-stars in the music video for “Lot Lizard,” releasing in January 2022 and Tony Hawk is slated to star in the video for “Open Your Eyes.” Singer, Dani Miller also recently guested on the GROUPLOVE track ‘Just What You Want’. Surfbort also starred in the 2019 Pre-Fall GUCCI campaign, performing at the press event and is featured in the FILM DIRECTED BY GLEN LUCHFORD. Singer Dani Miller is also the star of the launch of the worldwide campaign for GUCCI BEAUTY. Drummer, Sean Powell was the inspiration behind the lead Character the Academy award winning film, Sound of Metal.
