Cold War Kids celebrate the release of their new album ‘Hold My Home’ today via Downtown/SonyRED, with a new video for album track ’Harold Bloom’.
The black & white clip was shot at Newport Theatre in Columbus Ohio, directed by Sean M Flynn, and accompanies one of the record’s more melancholic moments.
‘Hold My Home’ is the band’s fifth studio record and also features previous single “All This Could Be Yours,” which NME declared “a nagging, sneering swipe at a coward, all bluesy piano, ringing guitar and bovver-boy beats” as well as another track “First,” which ShortList named as “a bold, strident anthem which bodes incredibly well for the rest of the record.”
Cold War Kids is Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Dann Gallucci, Joe Plummer and Matthew Schwartz. Formed in 2004, the band’s breakthrough debut Robbers & Cowards was released to considerable acclaim in 2006. The darker Loyalty To Loyalty followed two years later, while 2011’s Mine Is Yours introduced deeper anthemic qualities to the eclectic group’s catalogue. 2013’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, featuring the hit single “Miracle Mile,” was a return to their raw live sound. Cold War Kids have sold over 500,000 albums, over 1 million singles and have more than 50 million streams to date.
