Surf Dads had an unlikely start and plenty of hills to climb. With Chris Dimas living in California and Gage McGuire living in Saskatchewan, being separated by 2800 kilometers was less than ideal when trying to start a band.
After a few months of sending iPhone recordings back and forth, Chris came back for Christmas and their debut record "Denny's EP" was born.
Denny's EP was released on April 12, 2015, and only weeks after, label attention had already come their way. The boys signed with Split-Tape Records out of Ohio/Washington and immediately started working on their follow up record.
For their next effort "Dark Dads" the physical distance between the two weighed heavily on them. With half the EP recorded in Regina, and the other half recorded in LA, the duo had never played two of the four songs in the same room. Having complete trust in one in other, they finished the record in less than a month and released it on May 23, 2015.
If releasing two EP's in a little better than a month wasn't enough.. they decided to write and record their third EP "A Nice Boy" the day before Chris left back for LA. They completed the record in 9 hours and it is set to release on July 9, 2015.
Now about to embark on their first tour, Surf Dads is hitting the road and heading to the West Coast in support of all three records. Keep your eyes peeled for Surf Dads!
