Warpaint Announce New LP Radiate Like This
Warpaint, have announced their new full-length Radiate Like This, their first full length in six years, drops on May 6,2022. Ahead of the release, the band have shared the album track “Champion.” “Being a champion to oneself and for others,” the band says of the new track. “We are all in this together, life is too short not to strive for excellence in all that we do.”
In the six years since 2016’s Warpaint’s four members—Emily Kokal, Jenny Lee Lindberg, Stella Mozgawa and Theresa Wayman—have been busy living. Babies, jobs, tours, solo albums, intercontinental and cross country moves all became priorities, presenting mounting logistical challenges to getting the band back together, as they say, and allowing a little space to think “what if we didn’t?”
Eventually, though, each of the women found themselves drawn inexorably back together. Warpaint is as much a home for them as a band, having been together for nearly 20 years. They had just completed the foundational tracking sessions with co-producer Sam Petts-Davies (Thom Yorke, Frank Ocean, Skullcrusher) when the pandemic hit and they were forced to retreat to respective safety.
“I was saying the other day that we should’ve called this album “Exquisite Corpse”, but it was already taken,” jokes Kokal, referring to the title of the band’s debut EP. Radiate Like This captures what’s always been the magic of Warpaint—the delicate interplay of four separate parts coalescing in motion—while somehow allowing each individual to shine a little brighter.
The band will make their live return with a run of shows in the U.K. and Europe this spring with global dates to follow. See full tour routing below.
