I remember being up late as a teenager and watching some show on late night TV in bed on Channel 4. I can't recall the year but I was in secondary school maybe 14-15 years old. The show itself was a load of brand new acts breaking through and they seemed to be playing in a back yard somewhere. I remember the show well because it was my first encounter with Cold War Kids. I was since lucky enough to actually see Cold War Kids perform in a back garden back at SXSW in 2011 and it was a highlight of the week. Plus the frozen margaritas at that show were unbelievably good.
The reason I bring all this up is that the band have a special place in my heart and mind so I was happy to see news of a new album breaking yesterday. Titled Dear Miss Lonely Hearts, it's set for release on April 1st via Downtown Records. As well as that they've teased the new sounds with a track titled "Miracle Mile" which is a lovely little Friday morning listen. It's Friday for God's sake, relax a little and enjoy some new music.
