Video: Cold War Kids Bitter Poem Video Clip*

Cold War Kids release a new 6-track EP titled Tuxedos on 17 September 2013. I love a band that still release EPs in between full albums (Dear Miss Lonelyhearts being released in April 2013), it proves they have material worthy of a listen. Tuxedos includes a couple of covers, unreleased tracks and an alternate version of Bottled Affection.

Unfortunately, for all you old school collectors out there Tuxedos is a digital-only release (Downtown Records) so it will not fatten up your already impressive record collection! Head on over to iTunes to buy a copy of Tuxedos and build up a virtual collection of songs that you only have a “license” to play. Licensing, it makes you feel warm inside, doesn’t it?
