Cold War Kids Splendour In The Grass Sideshows, July 2013

Written by Mike Hohnen on May 6, 2013

One of the first bands to be confirmed for Splendour In The Grass 2013, Cold War Kids have now revealed their other plans for their visit Down Under. As well as the festival, Cold War Kids will be hitting up Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth for their run of headlining sideshows, however the band will not be performing at Spin Off Festival while in South Oz.

This is exciting times for fans of the band who have been eager to check out their latest album Dear Miss Lonelyhearts in a live setting. The record had big shoes to fill given the connection between the fan base and their band’s prior release Mine Is Yours but since its release, it seems to have pushed all the right buttons, and them some.

Zan Rowe got the skinny that the US indie giants would be making the trip down for the festival, with the band straight-up confirming they’d be here for Splendour, and that they’d be performing sideshows. Now, here we are – announcing them. Funny old world, eh?

UPDATE: It has been announced that Sydney 4-piece Cabins will be warming the crowd for the below sideshows. Cabins are fresh from a 2-year hiatus and are sure to be peddling their new goods including the latest single In Blue.
