Biography

Formed in 2004, the band’s breakthrough debut Robbers & Cowards was released to considerable acclaim in 2006. The darker Loyalty To Loyalty followed two years later, and 2011’s Mine Is Yours introduced deeper anthemic qualities to the eclectic group’s catalog.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, which features the rollicking, energetic single “Miracle Mile,” is Cold War Kids’ first release with former Modest Mouse and Murder City Devils guitarist Dann Gallucci, who also handled its production alongside Lars Stalfors.

“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,” explains frontman Nathan Willet about the ten-track album, which was recorded at the band’s private studio in San Pedro, CA.

Cold War Kids are from Los Angeles, CA.

    Hold My Home is awesome! "First" just might be the best song I've heard all year "All This Could be Yours" and "Drive Desperate" are just as great!

    how can people not like Loyalty to Loyalty? Their first two albums were golden. Regardless, this new album is surprisingly good, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. My ranking would be R&C > LTL > Hold My Home >>> Dear Miss Lonelyhearts > Mine is Yours

    If you need a CWK fix, I'm already obsessed with this. Check out this release off Nathan & Matt's new album "Is Exotic Bait" from their band French Style Furs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujL07uOeUI0&feature=share&list=UUwZ4YdV5s5Ed0kEE14mUhvg

    Magic voice. This is the case when the lyrics don't matter. He's like Jack White
