The Dandy Warhols

The Dandy Warhols unveil new album DISTORTLAND

Dine Alone is very happy to announce the new album from The Dandy Warhols​ – DISTORTLAND. The Dine Alone debut from the Portland indie rock legends will be released April 8. Pre-orders are available now on iTunes​ or via our webstore, which features exclusive bootleg vinyl.

Furthermore, The Dandy Warhols have confirmed the first North American tour in support of Distortland.  The dates kick off April 1 in Salt Lake City, UT and include shows in Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal as well as 2 nights at NY’s Bowery Ballroom. See below for a full routing. More dates will be announced.

The band recently shared the album track “You Are Killing Me” – their first taste of new music since 2012’s This Machine. Stereogum describes the track as “a hooky, efficient chugger that reminds me, weirdly enough, of the Cars, while it still has that old pretty sense of stoner drift to it.” while the AV Club chimed in saying “Everything about the new tune, from the instrumentation to the lyrics, comes off as effortless, but the simplistic hook is memorable enough that heads will surely nod.”  You can listen to “You Are Killing Me” here.

Formed in Portland, Oregon, The Dandy Warhols consist of members Courtney Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums).  Distortland was first recorded in Taylor’s basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe – best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce – mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is “organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there.”
