Surfer Blood sign to Warner Bros., stand in front of colored backdrops, officially morph into Weezer

Surfer Blood: they’re the new Weezer! At least, that’s what nearly every positive review of their debut record Astrocoast claims. But you can’t be the new Weezer without a major label deal (or can you?), so, lo and behold, Surfer Blood are signing to Warner Bros. Before they make the jump for real, they’ll be releasing one last EP for current label Kanine, due sometime next year. Granted, that won’t be the last of their partnership with Kanine, as their next full-length will be released by Warner Bros. in conjunction with Surfer Blood’s current label. One can only expect (hope?) that that second record will be a brilliant, commercially unsuccessful record centering around a song detailing singer John Paul Pitts’s infatuation with a, say, Korean fan. Then the band will disappear for several years and, well, let’s not worry about what happens after that. Also, some Spike Jonze videos somewhere in the mix.
