The Dandy Warhols Share 

September and October Tour Dates Announced

Distortland Out Via Dine Alone

This Spring saw The Dandy Warhols release their newest album Distortland (Dine Alone Records) and today they are happy to share a Gerald Casale (Devo) remix of their track "Pope Reverend Jim."  It premiered via The Nerdist who said, "a decidedly Devo spin..."Pope Reverend Jim" graduates from rock club to dance hall."  Read what Casale told them about the track here.

Courtney Taylor Taylor notes "Devo is one of Thee bands of my life. Very possibly THEE band so working with Gerald on this was a life achievement/bucket lister of mine fer sher. I love it and I play it LOUD"  You should to! 

Throughout their long career The Dandy Warhols have earned a reputation for bringing everything they have to their live show and that hasn't changed in 2016.   Around the release of Distortland they played to packed rooms on an East Coast run including 2 shows at NYC's Bowery Ballroom and one in Brooklyn at Rough Trade More recently they sold out multiple shows on their European and UK tour.   The band has now confirmed a Fall tour of the United States which kicks off in Minneapolis on September 23 with a show at The Varsity Theater and concludes with a 2-night stand at The Scoot Inn in Austin TX October 14 and 15.  Along the way they will stop in Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas, among many other cities.  The full tour is listed below.   

"pop hooks abound on (the album)" Consequence of Sound 

"Distortland (is) such a damned welcome sound for sore ears" Magnet

"it has all the understated, tuneful swagger that you would hope to hear from a new Dandy Warhols song in 2016."    Stereogum on "Catcher In The Rye"


a hypnotic strut of a song, that never quite peaks so much as lures you with singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor's vocals low and lulling in the mix. They're urging you to lean in that little bit closer."  Noisey on "STYGGO

"Everything about the new tune, from the instrumentation to the lyrics, comes off as effortless, but the simplistic hook is memorable enough that heads will surely nod." AV Club on "You Are Killing Me

"the song sports a chugging guitar riff and an earwormy hook"  Diffuser on "You Are Killing Me"  

"the choral hook will surely have you turning back again and again." Austin Town Hallon "You Are Killing Me"


Formed in Portland, Oregon, The Dandy Warhols consist of members Courtney Taylor-Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmström (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums).   Distortland was first recorded in Taylor's basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe - best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce - mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is "organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there."
