WARPAINT UNVEILS NEW TRACK “HIPS” CONFIRMS RADIATE LIKE THIS U.S. TOUR NEW ALBUM RADIATE LIKE THIS OUT MAY 6

April 22, 2022—Celebrated L.A. quartet Warpaint shares a new track today, “Hips,”—listen here. The new track is taken from Radiate Like This, Warpaint’s first full length in six years, out May 6—pre-save/pre-order https://warpaint.lnk.to/RadiateLikeThisPR

Additionally, the band confirms the Radiate Like This tour, a run of U.S. dates beginning in July with stops in Los AngelesBrooklynWashington D.C. and more—see full routing below and purchase tickets hereBelief, the side project of Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and L.A. producer Boom Bip, will support on the east coast dates.The new track, which Warpaint’s Emily Kokal likens to “gyrations of the birth of a new world,” follows initial offerings from Radiate Like This, “Champion” —praised by Stereogum as a “masterful reintroduction” to the band

—and “Stevie,”

which arrived alongside a video made in collaboration with Fascinated By Everything —watch the fully immersive video made for Oculus here and the 2D version here.

In the six years since 2016’s much-lauded Heads Up, Warpaints four members—Emily KokalJenny Lee LindbergStella Mozgawa and Theresa Wayman—have been busy living. Babies, jobs, tours, solo albums, intercontinental and cross country moves all became priorities, presenting mounting logistical challenges to getting the band back together, as they say, and allowing a little space to think “what if we didn’t?”

Eventually, though, each of the women found themselves drawn inexorably back together. Warpaint is as much a home for them as a band, having been together for nearly 20 years. They had just completed the foundational tracking sessions with co-producer Sam Petts-Davies (Thom Yorke, Frank Ocean, Skullcrusher) when the pandemic hit and they were forced to retreat to respective safety.

What followed was the making of a wholly different Warpaint album. Physically separated by the pandemic, each musician recorded her parts separately—often in makeshift home studios—before sending on to the next, creating songs layer by layer. Deciding to delay the release until they could tour allowed them to further hone each track, spending more time building and rebuilding than they had in the past. The result is a body of work that is sharper and more focused than any of their previous, each song as tight, beguiling and proud as a diamond.

“I was saying the other day that we should’ve called this album “Exquisite Corpse”, but it was already taken,” jokes Kokal, referring to the title of the band’s debut EP. Radiate Like Thiscaptures what’s always been the magic of Warpaint—the delicate interplay of four separate parts coalescing in motion—while somehow allowing each individual to shine a little brighter.

The band will make their live return with a run of shows in the U.K. and Europe this spring with global dates to follow. See full tour routing below.

Warpaint is Emily Kokal (guitar, vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, vocals), Stella Mozgawa(drums, vocals) and Theresa Wayman (guitar, vocals). Radiate Like This follows their critically beloved debut EP Exquisite Corpse, 2010’s The Fool, 2014’s Warpaint and 2016’s Heads Up.
