Cold War Kids to Tour

The SoCal foursome prep to spend nearly three months on road.

Jangly California rockers Cold War Kids have announced an extensive tour of over 35 cities across North America. Set to kick off Jan. 10 at New York City’s Pianos, Cold War Kids will play weekly gigs alternating between there and Los Angeles’ Silverlake Lounge, playing three shows in each city before hitting the open road Feb. 20. The band will be armed with tunes from their 2006 breakout album, Robbers & Cowards, which has received as much critical praise as their live show. Right before their tour commences, the band will drop a music video for “Hang Me Out To Dry,” available on iTunes Jan. 9.
