Formed in Fullerton in 2004, Cold War Kids have released 5 records, 6 EP's and multiple live records and singles over the last 12 years. Nathan Willett & Matt Maust, the founding members and heartbeat of the band, have poured everything they have into their art which is the reason why the band has always garnered critical success and have now crossed into the mainstream with their single "First" which spent 8 weeks at #1 on the Alternative radio charts. Now with a new and refreshed lineup made up of Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Matthew Schwartz, Joe Plummer & David Quon the band is ready to begin their newest chapter. In the words of Drowned in the Sound, "Cold War Kids are a band in control of their own destiny. They are a band to love, a band who are growing and drawing us along with them. Care to join?"
