Cold War Kids are heating up as they approach their new album.
The Long Beach, California indie rockers just released their newest single ‘Hot Coals’ off their upcoming fifth studio album Hold My Home, slated for an October 20 release, through Downtown Records.
Consisting of Nathan Willett (vocals/piano/guitar), Matt Maust (bass), Dann Gallucci (guitar/vocals), Joe Plummer (drums) and Matthew Schwartz (keys), Cold War Kids formed in 2004 and made waves with their 2006 debut Robbers & Cowards. In the decade since, the quartet has sold over half a million records and have been streamed over 50 million times.
After touring in support of their 2013 effort Dear Miss Lonelyhearts and the follow-up Tuxedos EP, the group went to work on Hold My Home, recently releasing the album’s first single, ‘All This Could Be Yours’ and the anthemic ‘First’. The 11-track album was produced by Gallucci and Lars Stalfors (Matt and Kim, Mars Volta) at the band’s San Jose-based studio.
‘Hot Coals’ is also available as an instant download on the band’s PledgeMusic page.
Cold War Kids will soon embark on a headlining tour on the East Coast before returning to the Golden State next month:
