Earlier this year, The Donkeys released their mini-album, Midnight Palms, which was met with rave reviews by AllMusic and PopMatters, and peaked at #35 on the CMJ Top 200 chart. In support of the release, the band is hitting the road for “The Endless Summer Tour,” a title that nods to the cult-classic 1966 surf film. In the film, The Endless Summer, director Bruce Brown follows two young surfers around the world in search of the perfect wave. The Donkeys, now in their 12th year and out of San Diego, are no strangers to surfing or traveling.
To complete the homage, The Donkeys share with us a cover of the movie’s theme song, “Theme From The Endless Summer.”
