Watch Warpaint’s Rough Trade Sessions – video

The tracks will also feature on the Deluxe Edition of their debut 'The Fool'

Warpaint have debuted their Rough Trade Sessions online. Scroll down to watch the LA-based four-piece play exclusive versions of ‘Billie Holiday’, ‘Composure’, ‘Burgundy’ and ‘Majesty’.

Filmed in east London, the new sessions will also feature on the Deluxe Edition of their debut album ‘The Fool’, which is released on September 26.

The two-disc version of their acclaimed 2010 record will feature the ‘Exquisite Corpse’ EP as well as extra bonus material, and marks the one-year anniversary of the original release of ‘The Fool’.


Warpaint recently confirmed to NME that work on their new album is underway. Though the group have mentioned aiming for a stripped-back sound in the past, drummer Stella Mozgawa has denied aiming for an aesthetic. She said:

We don’t have any concept of what it should sound like. Unless all of us decide that it should sound particularly minimal or electronic. Right now it’s important for us to experiment and write with one another. We’ve never written from then ground up with this line-up.

Guitarist Jenny Lee Lindberg added that new songs are often formed during live shows, saying: “oftentimes we’ll just jam and free-flow onstage, so maybe a new song will happen that way. It’s coming.”

Warpaint support Arctic Monkeys and TV On The Radio this weekend (September 25) at the Hollywood Bowl in their hometown.
