Video: Cold War Kids – “Loner Phase”


On the heels of a successful spring tour, Cold War Kids have extended their headlining North American tour by adding summer dates kicking off today at Plush in St. Louis, MO. Fall tickets will be available via http://www.coldwarkids.com. Pre-sale tickets will be available tomorrow, with the public on-sale beginning June 7th. See below for itinerary.

Cold War Kids have also released a video to accompany “Loner Phase,” an infectious song from their fourth studio album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, released April 2nd on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings. Consequence of Sound says, “Loner Phase, is chock-full of classic CWK. While bobbing basslines and snappy drums line the track up nicely with the band’s earlier work, there are distinct signs of the aforementioned growth.”

“Fits and starts of brilliance on the first three records, Cold War Kids have hit their stride and locked into a very intense groove for the fourth, ” says Esquire Magazine. NME adds, “(Dear Miss Lonelyhearts) has gone back to the sort of idiosyncratic weirdness that made us fall for them in the first place.” Relix states, “There’s a natural flow to the songs on this disc … a complexly drawn collection. And that blues sensibility you always liked best about them is happily still there.”

Brand New: Stream Cold War Kids “Miracle Mile”


Cold War Kids are excited to announce the release of their fourth studio album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, on April 2, 2013 via Downtown Records (and via MapleMusic Recordings in Canada). In anticipation of the release, the band is currently streaming the album’s engaging lead single, Miracle Mile.

Stream: Cold War Kids – “Miracle Mile”

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts came to life at the band’s San Pedro, CA studio space. They enlisted new guitar player, Dann Gallucci (Murder City Devils, Modest Mouse) and Lars Stalfors to produce.   “We were shaken up, ready to let certain songs go further than before by trying new styles and arrangements, while keeping others sparse and caring more about the finished product and less about how we got there,” says lead singer Nathan Willett.

The band will release trailers, from the making of their record, each week leading up to April 2nd. Trailers 1 and 2 are available now on their website. They truly encapsulate the energy that Cold War Kids bring to their live performances and it are those performances which remain the heart of the band.
