Cold War Kids will release a trilogy of new albums.
The first one, New Age Norms 1, will be out November 1st and includes “Complainer” and the new single “Waiting for Your Love.”
Frontman Nathan Willett says the inspiration for this trilogy came from an unlikely source. “Last summer we were on tour when Kanye West 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 [crap], pushing each other. I knew then I wanted our next release to be three volumes — eight songs each.”
Cold War Kids will kick off a month-long winter tour on January 16th in Portland, Oregon, with tickets going on sale Friday. Their fall tour starts October 4th in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Majestic Theatre welcomes the band on February 28th.
