Formed in 2004 in Fullerton, CA, Cold War Kids--Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Joe Plummer, Matthew Schwartz, and David Quon--have sold more than 800,000 albums, over two million singles and racked up over 200 million streams to date.

Cold War Kids brand new EP Los Feliz Blvd, released July 28 (Capitol Records), features intimate, acoustic recordings of tracks from the latest full-length album, LA Divine. With elegant, sparse instrumentation, the singles "Love Is Mystical," "Can We Hang On?" and "So Tied Up" are stripped down to their emotional core. British singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs is featured on two tracks--a soulful version of Rihanna's "Love On The Brain" and the sizzling "So Tied Up" which TIME magazine hailed as "a fast-paced toe tapper with a stadium-sized arrangement. As far as angsty passionate themes to conflicted love affairs go, this one ticks all the right boxes." Watch the new video for "So Tied Up" from Cold War Kids' (HERE).

Coming on the heels of 2014's Hold My Home--which featured the chart-topping, gold-certified single "First"--LA Divine pays tribute to Los Angeles in all its strange glory, embodying Cold War Kids' fascination with their adopted hometown. Produced by Lars Stalfors (Health, Local Natives), it debuted in the Top 10 of Billboard's Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. "Love Is Mystical," the lead single, was praised by NME for taking the band's "rousing and soulful anthemics to new heights." The track, which is approaching 21 million streams worldwide, held the No. 1 spot for Most Increased Plays at AAA radio for two consecutive weeks and went on to spend 10 straight weeks in the Top 5. It took the No. 1 spot on the Alt 18 Countdown for four consecutive weeks and hit No. 2 at Alternative radio.

Cold War Kids recently wrapped a sold-out North American headline tour and are currently on tour with Young The Giant for the "Home of the Strange Tour," in addition to performances at Memphis Music Festival and New Orleans' Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.
