Cold War Kids
Cold War Kids have released a video for "Beyond the Pale," a new song from their forthcoming album NEW AGE NORMS, 1. The song, co-written with Mikky Ekko (Rihanna, Clams Casino), is a piano ballad that features lead singer Nathan Willett at his most emotionally bare as he shares the universal tale of a life spent on the road away from his family. The video portrays the frenetic yet fun lifestyle of being in a band on the road while the despair in the lyrics reshape how one sees these images.

This year's Forecastle Festival was a success despite extreme weather. Due to heavy rains leading up to the festival, the rising Ohio River threatened the structure of stages close to the water. A windstorm on Friday shut down headliner Sam Smith's performance early and caused a two-hour delay on Saturday. Throughout the weekend, however, the extreme heat was the talk of most festivalgoers. Thankfully, the crew hosting the event was phenomenal.

The first album from French Style Furs, "Is Exotic Bait," is an existential collaboration. Nathan Willett and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids came together with lifelong friend and We Barbarians drummer Nathan Warkentin to document a spontaneous urgency to lose themselves and, in the process, find themselves.

Another Friday night in Downtown Boulder, CO. It was one of the biggest crowds I'd seen lately at the Boulder Theater, the kind where once you're in, you're only getting out again at the expense of your standing room – it would be filled by someone else when you get back. I felt extremely lucky to have been there at all, since the show was sold out, had been for a week or more, and I only just got the call telling me I would be on the clock covering the show earlier in the afternoon.
