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.

6. Golden Gate Jumpers
