Warpaint have announced their new album ‘Heads Up’.
The LA group will release the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled album on September 23 via Rough Trade.
The band also shared a track from the record, titled ‘New Song’, which NME’s Rhian Daly calls “easily the poppiest thing they’ve ever done and probably the catchiest too”. Read her full verdict on Warpaint’s return here.
Over the past year, Warpaint’s members have been busy working on various solo projects. Jenny Lee Lindberg released a solo album under the name jennylee, Emily Kokal worked with Saul Williams and Paul Bergmann and Theresa Wayman has been working on a solo project called BOSS.
Speaking about their new album, Lindberg said: “I feel really proud of what we made—almost surprised and shocked. When we were making it, I was like, ‘I wonder what this is going to sound like? How’s this going to come together?’ I love the way that it came together so nicely. I feel so proud of it, and like it’s an evolution of our band. It sounds like a mature version of Warpaint.”
Warpaint will tour the UK in October. The dates are as follows:
Bristol, Simple Things Festival (October 22)
Edinburgh, Queens Hall (23)
Manchester, Albert Hall (24)
Liverpool, The Dome (26)
London, The Roundhouse (27)
