Side Shows announced + New Track: Cold War Kids – Royal Blue
Cold War Kids are back with new track Royal Blue taken from their third album Mine Is Yours, which is due for release in January 2011.
Front-man Nathan Willett discussed the changes in the band’s personal lives which have influenced the recording of their new LP:
“I got home from tour and realized I was married,” he said. “All my friends had either jumped in the deep end of a relationship or had drowned.
“When did things get so serious? We fought growing up but the wild nights and free-for-all caught up to us. Some people got out in time and others had permanent damage. For this record, I wrote about the joys and failures of commitment all around me.”
Cold War Kids will be in the country over December/January to play Falls, Southbound and Sunset Sounds festivals.
Sideshows for Melbourne & Sydney have also been announced:
January 4 – Forum Theatre, Melbourne
January 6 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney
