Cold War Kids Announce New Album Details

After giving fans a taste of what’s to come at last month’s stellar Celebrate Brooklyn performance, Cold War Kids announce details of their highly anticipated sophomore album. An impressive and lushly textured follow-up to their critically acclaimed robbers & cowards (2006), Loyalty To Loyalty will be released on Downtown Records in September ’08.

While staying true to their bluesy roots,
Loyalty To Loyalty marks a huge musical progression for the band. The Long Beach, CA 4-piece have created something of a masterpiece; a 13 track album brimming with the poignant, intimate narratives and brooding atmospherics they’re famed for.
Track List:

1. Against Privacy
2. Mexican Dogs
3. Every Valley Is Not A Lake
4. Something Is Not Right With Me
5. Welcome To The Occupation
6. Golden Gate Jumpers
7. Avalanche in B
8. I’ve Seen Enough
9. Every Man I Fall For
10. Dreams Old Men Dream
11. On The Night My Love Broke Through
12. Relief
13. Cryptomnesia

Cold War Kids are: Nathan Willett (vocals/keyboardist/guitar), Matt Maust (bass guitar), Jonnie Russell (guitar) and Matt Aveiro (drums).
The band will soon embark on North American tour, bringing audiences songs from both
