On September 17th, Cold War Kids will follow up this past April’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts with a digital-only EP, Tuxedos, through Downtown Records. The six-song effort features an alternate version of album track “Bottled Affection”, covers of Antony and The Johnsons’ “Aeon” and The Band’s “You Don’t Come Through”, and two tracks never before released in the US, “Romance Languages #2” and “Pine St.”.

Like much of Lonelyhearts proper, “Pine St.” features a deliberately minimalist production value, leaving plenty of room for the airy guitars and Nathan Willett’s stark vocals to tug at the ol’ heart strings. Listen in below.

Tuxedo EP Tracklist:
01. Tuxedos
02. Aeon
03. Bottled Affected (Cathedral Version)
04. Romance Languages #2
05. Pine St.
06. You Don’t Come Through

In support of both efforts, the band will embark on a US headlining tour today, which runs though early November. Consult their full schedule below.
