Nada Surf is also slated to tour in celebration of Let Go‘s 15th anniversary. The shows are billed as ‘An Evening with Nada Surf, Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Let Go.’ The band will perform Let Go, take a break, and return for a second set. There will be no support on these shows. The full list of Let Go tour dates can be found below.

Originally released in 2003, Let Go had different track listings in the US and UK/EU. This compilation features the US track listing and includes “No Quick Fix” (recorded by Victoria Bergsman of Taken by Trees/The Concretes), a song that  appeared only on the initial UK/EU release.  “Neither Heaven Nor Space” wasn’t included on the initial release in the UK/EU.

Let Go was heralded by the music press (except for Pitchfork, which gave the album a 3.8/10), and is recognized for rejuvenating the band’s career after an awkward parting with their initial label, Elektra Records.
