“The soulful lyrics and sonic reverence of (LA Divine) is overwhelmingly compelling, addictive and even mesmerizing.” – The Huffington Post
“California rock quartet follows up lead single “Love is Mystical” with the equally enticing “So Tied Up”. This one is a fast –paced toe tapper with a stadium-sized arrangement. As far as angsty passionate themes to conflicted love affairs go, this one ticks all the right boxes.” – TIME Magazine
Cold War Kids have followed on from the release of their brand new album, L.A. Divine by announcing their first live shows in the UK for 4 years this summer with three shows across the UK, Including a headline show at London’s legendary Shepherds Bush Empire, a venue they last played 10 years ago in 2007!
