Cold War Kids | Fall Tour Extension, LP Release Date

cwk-header.jpg

As we mentioned last month, Cold War Kids are embarking on an extensive world tour in support of their new LP, announced for release September 23. The tour starts on Saturday for a short run Down Under and then will pass through Europe before heading back to LA for the US leg of the tour. Recently the group tacked on a whole new set of dates, all of which are overseas in Europe.

The group broke onto the scene in late 2005 with a percussive, stripped-down sound. Lead singer Nathan Willet has one of the best voices going in rock music and their live show is highly enjoyable. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a raucous version of “St. John” that includes all of the supporting acts on the bill. Follow the jump for all the dates and a link to a new track…


I am really hoping that the CWK upcoming album does fall into the sophomore slump that a lot of bands’ second LPs have fallen victim. They have a very basic sound that is steeped in blues and sou, and keeping with that formula would prove them well. They’ve got a free download of the first single off Loyalty to Loyalty up on their website. Click here.
