Cold War Kids have announced details of their new album.

Produced by Lars Stalfors, 'New Age Norms 1' is set to land on November 1 and marks the first in a three-album trilogy from the California-based quintet.

The news comes with the premiere of their new upbeat single, Waiting For Your Love, a song about finally finding the person you've been looking for. It follows the previously shared album tracks Complainer and 4th of July, their first new music in more than two years that arrived this summer. Lead vocalist and guitarist Nathan Willett said:

"Last summer we were on tour when Kanye was putting out his new records. Pusha T, Kids See Ghosts, Nas, etc. They were eight songs each. It was so fun waking up to these brand new records and taking them in as a whole while hanging out, working out, talking, pushing each other.

"I knew then I wanted our next release to be three volumes - eight songs each. Without the baggage and hoopla of a full record/tour/concept - more spread out - loose and inspired. Make it feel like you are listening to music that was made the night before. New Age Norms is a phrase Maust had written on a tee shirt. It seemed to summarize this moment we are in as a band and as a country. More on that later..."

Cold War Kids will accompany the album's release with a North American headline tour, the first leg of which begins on October 4 in Salt Lake City and continues through to the end of November before picking back up in the new year.

What's Your First Line Going To Be? The Futureheads Discuss Their Long-Awaited Return With 'Powers'
Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Tool - Fear Inoculum (Album Review)
Fri 06 Sep 2019
Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
