Cold War Kids announce the release of Tuxedos, a digital EP available September 17th through Downtown Records. The six-song collection includes two previously unreleased tracks in the US, “Romance Languages #2” and “Pine St.“, as well as covers “Aeon” (Antony and The Johnsons) and “You Don’t Come Through” (The Band). Tuxedos also features the self-titled original album track and an alternative version of “Bottled Affection” from their April 2nd release, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.  


Cold War Kids have also released a cinematic music video for “Water and Power”, a track from Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. The video is currently playing on Pigeons and Planes.


Cold War Kids kick off their headline tour on Thursday, August 15th at San Diego’s House of Blues and will continue on the road through November 6th at St. Lake City’s The Depot. The run will include shows at Stubb’s Amphitheatre in Austin, TX (August 22), The Wiltern in Los Angeles (September 19) and Terminal 5 in New York City (October 22). Complete tour itinerary is below. Papa will open on select dates.

“Fits and starts of brilliance on the first three records, Cold War Kids have hit their stride and locked into a very intense groove for the fourth,” says Esquire Magazine. NME adds, “(Dear Miss Lonelyhearts) has gone back to the sort of idiosyncratic weirdness that made us fall for them in the first place.”  Relix states,There’s a natural flow to the songs on this disca complexly drawn collection. And that blues sensibility you always liked best about them is happily still there.”
