“Weightless” You Tube Video Contest Winner Announced

Additional Tour Dates Announced

Barsuk Records is excited to announce that all five of Nada Surf’s studio records will be issued on vinyl for the first time ever. The set will be released on November 25, 2008 and will be collected in a limited-edition box. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, the career-spanning box contains all five studio albums on vinyl, an exclusive repressing of the first 7″ single, and full-color 24-page lyric and photo book. It will also include download codes for MP3 versions of The Proximity Effect, Let Go, The Weight Is a Gift, Lucky, and a collection of rare and out-of-print bonus tracks and b-sides.

The label and band are also excited to announce the winners of the Nada Surf / You Tube “Weightless” video contest. Congratulations to the winning directors, Richard Card and Austin Trotter, who will receive $3,000 from Barsuk Records for their video that focuses on transitions and dream-like experiences, both ordinary and surreal. Second-place winner Sean P. Rogan and his breathtaking skydiving (yes skydiving) entry, and third place winner Sam Kuhn and his beautifully shot black & white paper airplane video will receive a copy of the Nada Surf vinyl box set, an assortment of Nada Surf t-shirts and CDs and some gear from the good folks at You can watch the winning entries at:

This fall, Nada Surf will bring their signature vocal harmonies and stunningly catchy melodies to venues across the US in support of Lucky, their fifth album.

The media response to this record has been fantastic. The Los Angeles Times said the band is “the decade’s foremost purveyor of power pop,” while the NME called Lucky the band’s “finest album to date.” Guitar World hailed the new album as the band’s “most accomplished yet.” USA Today exclaimed, “as pure pop bands go these days, there are few on a par with Nada Surf over the last few albums.”
