The band will be touring in support of their new album LA Divine, which is due from Capitol Records on April 7th. Cold War Kids most expansive and ambitious effort so far, LA Divine pays tribute to Los Angeles and all its strange glory, embodying the Long Beach-bred band’s endless fascination with their adopted hometown. The album’s first single, “Love Is Mystical,” is available now for streaming and purchase from all digital partners. The video was shot in downtown Los Angeles at St. Vincent Court, an atmospheric alley that is a California historical landmark.

Cold War Kids sixth studio album and first for Capitol, LA Divine follows 2014’s Hold My Home, which debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s Alternative Album chart. The album featured the Gold-certified single “First,” which spent eight weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart where it remained for 64 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.
