St. Vincent was just added to the bill and Austinist has an interview with Cold War Kids ...

We notice on your recordings that the vocals are mixed high and the instruments are often sparse. Does this change much in a live setting?

It's similar live. I like vocals to be high in the mix. It's less common now. Lots of bands let vocals get washed up by guitars.

You seem pretty committed to the idea of song as story on Robbers and Cowards. Might that change for your next record?

Words are being written on this very day that are relevant to this question. I think that the stories will still be there for album two. There is a song called "Golden Gate Jumpers," and another called "Dreams Old Men Dream," and both are stories.
