Earth To The Dandy Warhols Out August 19

The Dandy Warhols are back and ushering in a rockin’ return to form with their sixth LP, Earth To The Dandy Warhols, the band’s debut album as masters of their own destiny. Pulling together the diverse sounds and influences that have always characterized their music, it’s quintessential Dandys, full of the same dry vigor that’s made them world famous. Earth To The Dandy Warhols is set for release on August 19, 2008 via The Dandy Warhols’ newly minted Beat The World Records.

From the Some Girls-era Rolling Stones-meets-Talking Heads “Welcome To The Third World,” to the campy “Mis Amigos,” to the psychedelic rock of “Beast of Saints,” Earth To The Dandy Warhols is pleasure of a ride that allows you to fully settle into it while still keeping you on your toes. The band reached out to their friends, too, inviting Dire Strait’s Mark Knopfler and the Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell to join in on the rollicking “Love Song.” “The Legend Of The Last Of The Outlaw Truckers AKA The Ballad Of Sheriff Shorty,” is a 21st century take on outlaw country that has Courtney Taylor-Taylor growling melodically over dusty guitar riffs. Earth to the Dandy Warhols serves as a stunning platform into a new era of The Dandy Warhols’ career, and places the band firmly in the ranks of rock’s elite class.

The Dandys treated fans to the party-starting opener “The World Come On” on May 5th, in conjunction with the re-launch of their website, through which fans also can get an early jump on the album through a digital subscription service .
