With the first of their three album trilogy out into the world, Cold War Kids stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ to drop a song from New Age Norms 1 the other night. Performing the song “Complainer,” the band proved they haven’t lost their shine while giving their fans an idea of what to expect from their current tour.
Utilizing multiple screens with the imagery of the album, the band did what they do best on the show. The live performance felt well rehearsed and conveyed the song perfectly. Embracing a new era in the group, the live glimpse had plenty of energy and bespoke craftsmanship. Never ones to sit still, the band played with passion and weight.
The video can be viewed on YouTube or above. New Age Norms 1 is available on multiple formats directly from the band. Cold War Kids are on tour tonight in San Diego, CA at North Park Theatre until February 15 in Austin, TX at Stubb’s. The band’s complete tour routing can be accessed here.
