Cold War Kids have announced a four-date U.S. tour in January to celebrate the release of their new four-track EP entitled Behave Yourself (due out January 19th):

10 26 09
As promised we will be releasing a 4 song EP called ‘Behave Yourself’ on January 19. We made a 1 minute video with our friend Vern to give you a preview of the songs and the video for ‘Audience’ that will come soon. We had a great time filming it in San Pedro; in our rehearsal space, skating on the docks, driving on the bluffs, shaving in the tide pools and being nude in a friend of a friend’s bathroom. Thanks to O’Brien for letting us borrow the ‘71 Triumph. We are in the studio now writing and recording so we are only going to do 4 shows in January. We are going to find a way to make them special by giving a free recording of each show that you can dowload with ticket purchase. Hopefully. If we can figure out the technology.

They’ve also released a video sampler for the new EP:
