In 2014 the band decided to ditch the big label and return to self-recording. Five years after their debut, Surfer Blood released 1000 Palms, self-recorded by the band in a living room and various spaces. Of the work, Surfer Blood frontman John Paul Pitts said, in a press release, “fortunately none of us are strangers to DIY recording, so it was a challenge well-suited to our band”. After a few days of very little sleep, pooling resources, and calling in favors from other musicians, the band came up for air with the collection of songs that made the final cut for this new album.
