Surfaces was back in their home state of Texas for Austin City Limits Music Festival, which returned this month after taking a hiatus last year due to the pandemic.

The duo, made up of Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki, stopped by to chat with Variance ahead of their massive performance on the Honda Stage, where they drew a rowdy crowd excited to have the pair back in Austin.

They talked about the excitement of being able to play live again, some of the background of their recent album Pacifico, as well as plans to work on and release new music. They haven't wasted much time, as they've just released a new song called "Awaken (Feel Alive)," which is a collaboration with Jackson Stell (aka Big Wild).

Check out the interview and the new song below. See their Good 2 Be Back Tour dates here.
