Cold War Kids – The Academy, Dublin

Cold War Kids make an eagerly awaited return to Ireland with a date at
The Academy, Dublin on Tuesday 17th May. Tickets priced 26.50 inclusive
of booking fee are on sale this Thursday, 24 February at 9am from
Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online at www.ticketmaster.ie

The Californian indie rockers released their third LP, Mine Is Yours, at
the beginning of the year.

Formed in 2004 in downtown Fullerton, California, Cold War Kids started
making waves after stunning performances at the 2006 South X Southwest
and Lollapalooza festivals. They were sub sequentially signed to
Downtown Records, home to Gnarls Barkley and Art Brut.

Cold War Kids released their debut album Robbers and Cowards in October
2006 and tracks such as Hospital Beds, We Used to Vacation and Hang Me
Up To Dry have become live favourites with fans. This was followed up by
2008’s Loyalty to Loyalty.

Heavily inspired by the works of Bob Dylan, Nina Simone and Velvet
Underground Cold War Kids strive to make honest songs about human
experience in orchards and hotel rooms, Laundromats and churches, sea
ports and school halls.

Tickets for Cold War Kids are on sale this Thursday at 9am.
