Cold War Kids preview new LP
American indie kin Cold War Kids have just started campaigning on behalf of their new long player, ‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts’. The sequel to 2011’s ‘Mine Is Yours’, it was overseen at the band’s California-based studio by engineer Lars Stalford (The Mars Volta) and new CWK (and ex-Modest Mouse) guitarist Dann Galluci.
Vocalist Nathan Willett gauges the in-band mood whilst all that was going on: “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”.
Having released ‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts’ via Downtown Records/Cooperative Music on 1 Apr – no fooling – Willett et al will then play the first of two British live dates at London’s Forum on 9 May, with another the following night at the Ritz in Manchester.
