Warpaint say they’re writing new material on the road

The band are trying to set up a 'little studio' on their tour bus

Warpaint‘s Stella Mozgawa has revealed that the band are already working on new material.

The band released their second, self-titled LP in January – four years after the release of their debut album ‘The Fool’. However, this time around the drummer says they are trying to record as they tour.

“We haven’t [started working on new material] yet but that’s all that we want to do,” Mozgawa told NME. “You can’t really cancel shows to do that and we’re touring until February of next year. That’s a relatively short time to tour an album which is really good for us because we can’t wait to make music, even though we’re enjoying [touring]. We’re trying to find ways to write on the road too which will be interesting.”


Writing on the road, she says, has “never been conscious, things come up and you record them and then rework them when you’re at home and in the studio. We’re going to try and create a little studio environment on our bus this time round, which will be exciting.”

Warpaint recently announced details of a UK tour to take place later this year. The Los Angeles band will begin their six-day UK tour at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on November 29 and finish up on December 5 at The Institute in Birmingham.

Warpaint are performing on the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage at the Reading And Leeds Festivals, playing Reading on August 22 and at Leeds the following day.

London Eventim Apollo Hammersmith (November 29)
Bournemouth O2 Academy (30)
Gateshead Sage Gateshead (December 2)
