All you poor saps who acquaint with me personally know that I am a HUGE Cold War Kids fan and the announcement of a new song, a new album, and a new tour is a trifecta of awesome that I wasn’t sure my heart could handle. I’ve been fortunate to see these guys live three times and that number is about to be four in May #ALLOFTHESHOWS…whoops, this isn’t Twitter or Insta. The last time I saw them live was on their small West Coast club tour in February 2012 at the Doug Fir and it had to be the most memorable of the bunch; a huge band, my favorite venue, and a bunch of super fans in the audience because the tour sold out crazy fast. I was in music heaven. Also, I was about five feet away from the lead singer, Nathan Willet, who is a confusingly appealing mixture of Woody Harrelson, KOL‘s Caleb Followill, and that brooding young man with the colorful tattoos slanging coffee at your local hangout. Yeah, I know that guy and he’s destroying the barista scene.
