In October, Cold War Kids celebrated the 10th anniversary of their debut album Robbers & Cowards. On its website, the band wrote: "It was that kind of spontaneous, whatever works, constant writing recording and playing that lead us to recording Robbers & Cowards in about 10 days. Ten years later, of course it's different now. I always want us to grow and explore new avenues, but that energy, the scene around us, being so constantly in the moment, is a feeling you always try to get back."
 
Cold War Kids are Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Joe Plummer, Matthew Schwartz, and David Quon. Formed in 2001 in Long Beach, CA, the band released its breakthrough debut Robbers & Cowards to considerable acclaim in 2006. The darker Loyalty To Loyalty followed two years later, while 2011's Mine Is Yours introduced deeper anthemic qualities to the eclectic group's catalog. 2013's Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, featuring the hit single "Miracle Mile," was a return to their raw live sound. Cold War Kids have sold more than 575,000 albums, over 2 million singles, and racked up nearly 200 million streams to date.
