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.

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

    I have no obligation to 'move on' if everything after R&C is bland and generic indie garbage. Just because an artist has 'moved on' doesn't mean that all of their work must be treated equally. Cold War Kids can 'experiment' with new sounds all they want, everyone is completely entitled to say that they suck if they don't meet the potential they set for themselves with their debut. Artistic progression doesn't instantly trump dissent.

    posso dizer que conhecendo melhor Cold War Kids, o som deles não é nada ruim. ¬¬

    I'm sick and tired of this 'oh my god I wish they made something like Loyalty to loyalty or Robbers and Cowards again'. Shut the fuck up and move on like they did.

    CWK haven't caught my attention since Robbers & Cowards, but DML is definitely one of my favorite albums of the year. "Bottled Affections" = <3

    I prefer Dear Miss Lonelyhearts a lot more that Loyalty to Loyalty and Mine is Yours, but in comparison to Robbers & Cowards they're all incredibly average. I just don't understand what happened after that first album.
