If you’ve been patiently waiting for Cold War Kids’ new album, we’ve got some good news for you. The band is working on three new records, and the first of the bunch is scheduled to be released in less than two months.

The band’s lead vocalist Nathan Willett described their process in an official press release and explained why they decided to drop not one, not two, but three installments in their upcoming album trilogy.

“I knew then I wanted our next release to be three volumes – eight songs each. Without the baggage and hoopla of a full record/tour/concept – more spread out – loose and inspired. Make it feel like you are listening to music that was made the night before,” said Willett.

The band’s upcoming album will be titled New Age Norms 1 – an expression that perfectly summarizes the moment where they are in as a band, according to Willett. It’s scheduled to be released on November 1st, and Cold War Kids teased its release with new single “Waiting For Your Love”.
