Cold War Kids have followed on from the release of their brand new album, L.A. Divine by announcing their first live shows in the UK for 4 years this summer with three shows across the UK, including at Manchester’s O2 Ritz this week
L.A. Divine – the band’s sixth studio album out now on Virgin EMI (UK) / Capitol Records (US)– follows 2014’s Hold My Home, which debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s Alternative Album chart. The album contained the US Gold-certified single “First,” which spent eight weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart where it remained for sixty-four weeks, making it the second-longest-running single in the chart’s history. The track has more than 90 million combined streams.
Cold War Kids are Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Joe Plummer, Matthew Schwartz, and David Quon. Formed in 2004 in Fullerton, CA, the band has sold more than 800,000 adjusted albums, over two million singles, and racked up nearly 200 million streams to date.
The band play at Manchester O2 Ritz on Friday 7th July. Tickets are on sale now and available at gigst.rs/CWK
