The Dandy Warhols are excited to announce the upcoming release of their new album DistortlandThe LP will be out April 8 via Dine Alone Records and is the band’s first for the label.  They are further excited to confirm the first North American tour in support of Distortland.  The dates kick off April 1 in Salt Lake City, UT and include dates in Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal as well as 2 nights at NY’s The Bowery Ballroom. See below for a full routing. More dates will be confirmed in the coming weeks and the full tour is listed below.
The band recently shared the album track “You Are Killing Me” – their first taste of new music since 2012’s This Machine. Stereogum describes the track as “a hooky, efficient chugger that reminds me, weirdly enough, of the Cars, while it still has that old pretty sense of stoner drift to it.” while the AV Club chimed in saying “Everything about the new tune, from the instrumentation to the lyrics, comes off as effortless, but the simplistic hook is memorable enough that heads will surely nod.”  Watch the lyric video for “You Are Killing Me” here.
Formed in Portland, Oregon, The Dandy Warhols consist of members Courtney Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums).  Distortland was first recorded in Taylor’s basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe – best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce – mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is “organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there.”
