Indie-rock outfit Cold War Kids have announced a release date for their fourth album. Titled Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, the album will be available on April 2, 2013 via Downtown Records.
The Long Beach, Calif.-based band has enlisted former Modest Mouse guitarist Dann Gallucci and Lars Stalfors (Matt & Kim, Funeral Party) to produce. The group will also release trailers, detailing the making of their record, each week leading up to the release date. The first two trailers are available now.
“We were shaken up, ready to let certain songs go further than before by trying new styles and arrangements, while keeping others sparse and caring more about the finished product and less about how we got there,” says lead singer Nathan Willett.
The band is currently streaming the lead single “Miracle Mile,” which you can listen to here.
In addition, the band has announced an extensive tour of both the States and Europe. Fans have a chance to secure pre-sale tickets through the band’s website on Jan. 16, starting at 1:00 p.m. EST.
