;; Warpaint announce their third studio album, ‘Heads Up’, released via Rough Trade Records.
;; ‘Heads Up’ was recorded after the band spent 2015 apart working on solo projects. Reuniting in January this year the band started to work with producer Jacob Bercovici, whom they had worked with on their debut EP ‘Exquisite Corpse’.
;; The album was recorded in House On The Hill studio in downtown LA, their home studios and Papap’s Palace. “The doors were a little more open in terms of what was accepted and what wasn’t, because
we were sharing ideas so rapidly between us” says the band drummer Stella Mozgawa of the recording process.
;; “Everybody was allowed to have their space, time and creative freedom with songs and figure out, ‘I wonder what the best notes would be? I wonder what the best would be to play?’” says bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg. “Everybody got to sit and go, “What do I want
to do to this? What’s my part? What’s My role? How can I make it the best?”
;; “I feel really proud of what we made - almost surprised,” says Linberg. “When we were making it, I was like ‘I wonder what this is going to sound like? How’s this going to come together so nicely?’ I feel so proud of it, and like it’s an evolution of our band, It sounds like a mature version of Warpaint.”
;; ‘Heads Up’ follows their beloved debut EP ‘Exquisite Corpse’, 2010’s ‘The Fool’ and 2014’s ‘Warpaint’.
;; The band will be embarking on a tour of the UK and Europe in October / November 2016, which will include a headline slot at the Simple Things festival in Bristol.
;; ‘Heads Up’ is available on CD and gatefold double LP with digital download code.
