Something is not right with the Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids will release their new album, Loyalty To Loyalty, the follow-up to the massively popular 2006 debut, Robbers & Cowards, on September 23 via Co-Op/Shock Records.

Cold War Kids - Loyalty To Loyalty

The new record has been described as 'lushly textured' and (as cringe-worthy as that phrase is) if the first single, Something Is Not Right With Me, is anything to go by the group could have a real winner on their hands...

Sombre pop album of the year?

Tracklisting:

  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

You can catch the group previewing some of the new material when they are in the country (in just a few days time!) for the Splendour In The Grass festival and a short East Coast tour.

Saturday, August 2: Splendour In The Grass, Byron Bay
Sunday, August 3: Tivoli, Brisbane
Monday, August 4: Enmore Theatre, Sydney
Wednesday, August 6: The Palace, Melbourne

Jonny Yes Yes

i really enjoyed it
heaps more than i thought i would..
we got to briefly meet the band too.. while we were wandering around out the back
one of them asked if we were the wombats..
we should have headbutted him..

I enjoyed the night too.
I thought most of the new songs sounded pretty good and
Nathan Willett is just a great singer.

I thought the lighting was poor though.

kidalias

Poor lighting, agreed.

Turns out that geeks *can* dance. The guitarists spazzed out.

1 decade ago

Jonny Yes Yes

yeh. lighting wasn'rt great.. but the sound was incredible.. really crisp.. which matched their sound perfectly..
hat tipped to the sound man ..

vitalorgans

i heard the sound man was in the wombats.

Jonny Yes Yes

ha.. i heard those dj fellas change cd's like lightning..

I heard BRMC.

Did anyone get there early enough to see Delta Spirit?

1 decade ago

Jonny Yes Yes

yes... sounded a bit 'adult contemporary' from where i was (credit=christian)
i can't listen to music like that.. i age one month with every minute (credit=me)
yeh.. how good are BRMC..
at one stage we were debating on whether or not to just put that whole album on so we could take some time off..

Mexican Dogs should be the next single off the album or I'll hunt the band down and point my fingers at them.

Keys to my heart Jonny...

why is no-one asking the important questions?
how many times did you play Shook Ones part 2?

gemdilem

yeah I totally agree with most comments...
siamese: survival, didn't get shutdown, mistaken for the Wombats, mastered the art of mixing with one cd player, fooling us with moments of silence...
delta spirit: I don't get it, they seem too nice or something... time for beers.
cwk: I saw them at splendour, but only for 2 songs before ran off to see Band Of Horses. At Splendour they sounded shit, sound was crap, they were all over the place, out of time... What a different story at the Enmore... the sound was awesome (as it usually is there) and they seemed more relaxed and together... I love that they completely lost their shit towards the end and rocked out... I don't really understand what they were trying to achieve with the lighting, it was so dark and crap... I think the guitarist was still a little off at times but the vocals sounded amazing at the enmore, so much better than at Splendour. New songs sound great too.

I like to refer to it as Ryan Adams lighting.

Where did everyone end up tonight? Too many sideshows, not enough tiiiime. She's running out of time! I need a time transplant! Stat!

I felt I needed to add this link to explain myself.

Band of Horses for me last night.
Great, great show!

1 decade ago

gemdilem

Band of Horses was one of my Splendour highlights... along with The Grates, Divo, The Music, New Young Pony Club, Vampire Weekend... ohhh and Operator Please doing a cover of Salt n Pepa "Push It" [aren't they too young to know this song?! well thats the kind of abuse I yelled at them during it, although it was a really good cover]

did anyone else go to Splendour?

1 decade ago

kidalias

Jonny, did you have anything to do with The Wombats cancelling their dates? Did you play along and end up on their flight in place of the singer?

1 decade ago

Jonny Yes Yes

ha.. we were actually supposed to 'dj' for the wombats show too.. had no idea they had been cancelled i thought we had just been politely told that 'our services would no longer be required'...

1 decade ago

gemdilem

Really they cancelled?? I caught them being interviewed on Triple J on tuesday and they said they'd already been to the Enmore and checked out the venue... but I think they also said that their equipment had gone missing on a bus somewhere from Byron?!

1 decade ago

gemdilem

I just googled and it looks like they only cancelled Adelaide?!

1 decade ago

kidalias

They played the Enmore (and I hear there was a big brawl outside too).

They cancelled both Melbourne shows.

Not sure whether Adelaide went ahead.

1 decade ago

vitalorgans

i guess our services wearn't needed jonny!

1 decade ago

tomosushi

i was hoping a life ban from the enmore would have been achieved on the night. SECOND biggest disappointment of 2008.

PS They should have flown you two down to Melbourne & Adelaide to save the wombats shows...geez
