Surfer Blood and Trail of Dead to play Ottobar in May
...And you will know us by the Trail of Dead announced they would tour with Surfer Blood this Spring, despite looking like they could break the baby-faced Florida rockers in half.
The veteran Austin rock band, known for their ferocious performances and on-stage fights, is fond of unlikely pairings.
A couple of years ago band members were praising art-rockers Dirty Projectors and Yeasayer.
The band has seven albums to newbie Surfer Blood's 2010 release, "Astro Coast." They're touring with a new one, out in February, called "Tao of the Dead."
The co-headlining show will be at the Ottobar May 11. The two bands are doing 13 shows together, including one in Washington D.C.
The rest of the tour dates, and a Trail of Dead Video, after the jump.
