update on the Tour Dates: they finally added a show in MINNEAPOLIS on Saturday March 29th! I wish I could have seen them at The Varsity Theater in March of 2011, but their driving in the Snow issues usurped that. I also got a ticket already. I have no clue if tickets went on sale last Friday, or not, but they are for sale on First Ave's Website already.

edit: yep, lol. I can't stand 87% of the tripe that they book there, I shouldn't have to follow their twitter posts religiously just to find this shit out. Blech, of well, better now than after the show may sell out (although it may not, as they are not quite the buzz band they were a few years ago it seems, despite this Calvin Klein ad with 2 million views, going back to late September ).

It bugs me that they may have gone on sale last week and I didn't realize it. That show, and as it turns out, BEND SINISTER at the Turf Club the VERY NEXT EVENING, lol.

Not bad, although another mid-tempo tune, that the outro has the most interesting moments initially.

Well, here it is finally. Like I posted the other day, the 1st single "Love Is to Die" is dreamy as people know Warpaint. Simple song titles.

Glad they aren't rushing it out at the end of the year.

And the fanboy in me couldn't pass up one of those 1st 1000 yellow vinyls + the stencil. Although I still would hope they would find a tour coming to Minnesota soon, and I would think they'll do a few North American tours to support this S/T sophomore LP of Warpaint's, and include at least 1 or more dates in Minnesota (and not have them miss due to snow/weather).

Because they totally stand out live as the videos and the 1 show I did see support.

But for now, this is great to look forward to (and hopefully get to listen to by the time it's available, lol).

The songs/tracklist I have heard some of, but I should try revisiting some of those tunes live to refresh my memory. I recall many of the unreleased songs they played live were like Love Is to Die. dreamy, methodical, which I do hope this album mixes it and varies more than just how that 1st single sounds.

The album is available to pre-order now from our Rough Trade webstore and iTunes. Album buyers will receive a free instant download of ‘Love Is To Die’. EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER: The first 1000 people worldwide to pre-order ‘Warpaint’ on double LP (gatefold, yellow, etched vinyl) from our webstore will receive a poster autographed by the band and a logo stencil. And the first 1000 people worldwide to pre-order ‘Warpaint’ on CD will receive a logo stencil.

Rough Trade is excited to announce the full details of Warpaint’s new self-titled album, set for release on 20th January 2014. ‘Warpaint’ is the follow-up to the LA four-piece’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Fool’ (2010).
The first single to be taken from ‘Warpaint’ is ‘Love Is To Die’, available to listen to in full here:

‘Warpaint’ was co-produced by Warpaint and Flood (PJ Harvey, Sigur Ros, New Order, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Foals), and mixed by Flood and Nigel Godrich (Radiohead). The album was conceived after some writing and recording sessions that took place in The Joshua Tree late last year. Here the band was joined by visionary director Chris Cunningham who has partnered with them for many of the album visuals including the cover. He has spent the past two years filming and photographing the band as they made ‘Warpaint’.
