What’s thicker, our eyeliner or our guitar strings?  

The Surfrajettes are a four-piece instrumental combo from Toronto, ON, Canada. Since  forming in late 2015, the band has charmed audiences with their clever mix of psychedelic rock  and reverb-drenched surf music, sky-high beehives, go-go boots, and eyeliner as thick as their  guitar strings. 

The band achieved viral online notoriety from their home-made performance videos and their  feature by Norman’s Rare Guitars in LA. The debut 45 single “Party Line / Toxic” released late  2018 on Hi-Tide Recordings to immediate success. The band has toured extensively in its  support, including performances on The Beach Boys Cruise, The Melissa Etheridge Cruise,  at Sea.Hear.Now, Nashville Boogie, Wild O Fest in Mexico City, The New England Shake Up!, Surf Guitar 101 Convention, Tiki Oasis & Hi-Tide Summer Holiday: Asbury Park.  

The band released the follow up single “Hale’iwa Hustle / Banzai Pipeline” in 2020, supported  by a festival appearance at Hi-Tide Winter Holiday: Pittsburgh. The group spent the rest of  2020 and most of 2021 writing and recording their debut LP “Roller Fink” - in stores worldwide  April 22, 2022 from Hi-Tide Recordings / Virgin Music. The album will be available for  purchase for the very first time following their performance at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly  Weekend 25 car show. 

The Surfrajettes are guitarists Shermy Freeman and Nicole Damof, bassist Sarah Butler,  and drummer Samantha Maloney. When not on tour, the group is busy woodshedding in their  secret beach hut, sewing new miniskirts, debating vintage gear, and daydreaming about  performing in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
