When two music acts know that they're in the same building, do they still make sound? When Cold War Kids heard Billy Bragg was in The Current studios for a Theft of the Dial, the band members Nathan Willitt, Matt Maust and Matthew Schwartz were down to meet the folk figure.
Frontman Nathan Willitt was at a loss for words, not just from meeting the British singer-songwriter activist, but from touring nonstop since the beginning of 2013 (meds were en route to First Avenue for his sore throat), all while preparing for the release of the new Tuxedos EP. On their official Twitter account, Cold War Kids even put the call out for pictures of fans in tuxedos:
anybody at a wedding tonite? or an event involving tuxedos???? Send in yer pix asap. It is the weekend afterall

The tweet was unrelated to the making of the "Tuxedos" music video, however, the fourth video they've premiered this year thus far. Nathan, Matt and "Schwartz" are simply just fond of tuxedos; the single appears on both the full-length Dear Miss Lonely Hearts and the Tuxedos EP.
Listen to the whole in-studio session to hear host Barb Abney talk with Cold War Kids about the new Tuxedos EP, their plans for another album in the near future and their missed connection with Brian Eno.
All songs off Cold War Kids' fourth studio album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, out now on Downtown/Mercury Records.

- Theft of the Dial: Cold War Kids While in town for a show at the First Ave mainroom, Long Beach, Calif.'s Cold War Kids stopped by The Current studio to chat with Barb and take over our airwaves to play some of their favorite tunes, featuring an eclectic mix of tunes old and new.
- Album Review: Cold War Kids - Dear Miss Lonelyhearts Cold War Kids are one of the most underrated American indie rock bands of the past five years. They write and record songs that are quintessentially modern rock. It's not a cool thing to do when you've been a band for close to a decade, but it's also why their new album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts is a refreshing return to normal in 2013.
