"The soulful lyrics and sonic reverence of (LA Divine) is overwhelmingly compelling, addictive and even mesmerizing." -  
The Huffington Post
 
"California rock quartet follows up lead single "Love is Mystical" with the equally enticing "So Tied Up".  This one is a fast -paced toe tapper with a stadium-sized arrangement. As far as angsty passionate themes to conflicted love affairs go, this one ticks all the right boxes." - TIME Magazine
 
 
Cold War Kids recently stopped by Spotify Studios in NYC to perform their single"Love Is Mystical" and an exclusive cover of Alicia Key's "No One"- listen to the Spotify Singles released today, HERE. 
 
"I was walking around Times Square with "No One" fresh in my mind and heard a woman yelling, 'we got news war- you're not rich enough baby-' and her words felt both poetic and true," says front man Nathan Willett.  "With a song this iconic and familiar I felt like adding her words made the lyrics fresh and related to a lot of conversations we're all having right now about how to be hopeful in discouraging times."
 
The band's new album LA Divine- their sixth studio L.P. and first for Capitol Records is out now.  The album pays tribute to Los Angeles in all its strange glory, embodying the Long Beach band's endless fascination with their adopted hometown.  Produced by their frequent collaborator Lars Stalfors (Health, Local Natives), the album's lead single "Love Is Mystical," was praised by NME for taking the band's "rousing and soulful anthemics to new heights." The single held the No. 1 spot for Most Increased Plays at AAA radio for two consecutive weeks and reached the Top 5 of the Alt 18 Countdown and Top 10 at Alternative and Top 5 at AAA radio.  The song has over 11 million streams worldwide and hit #4 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.
 
LA Divine also features the tracks, "Wilshire Protest" which contemplates LA's culture of isolation while the hazy and distorted "LA River" captures a dreamlike desperation. British singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs lends her formidable vocals to the stomping, gospel-infused "So Tied Up," which shines a light on everyday struggle, but burns with the promise of hope. Videos for the tracks "Can We Hang On?" "So Tied Up" Ft. Bishop Briggs and "Restless"are now streaming on Vevo.  Coming on the heels of 2014's Hold My Home - which featured the chart-topping, Gold-certified single "First" - LA Divine is Cold War Kids' most expansive and ambitious effort so far.  The band just wrapped a sold out North American headline tour and will also join Young The Giant on the "Home of the Strange Tour," beginning August 2nd in Louisville, KY. The run will include a performance at Central Park SummerStage and continue on through the end of September. Full itinerary and tickets for all shows are available at coldwarkids.com. 
 
Formed in 2004 in Fullerton, CA, Cold War Kids released their 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 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. The band has sold more than 600,000 albums, over two million singles, and racked up over 200 million streams to date.
