Warpaint are celebrating twenty years with the release of a new 7”, Common Blue’ b/w ‘Underneath, the album drops on March 22, via Rough Trade Records. Along with the news, the band have announced a run of West Coast tour dates. Warpaint is Theresa Wayman (vocals, guitar), Emily Kokal (vocals, guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, vocals) and Stella Mozgawa (drums).

For the new release, the band reunited with Rough Trade, the label behind their debut album and creative home for most of their existence. “It makes us smile to release them in collaboration with friends and family at Rough Trade,” the band say, continuing “It feels like a perfect return to where it all began! With these new songs we tie a bow around this time in our lives, and all the experiences and songs we’ve shared over the years. It’s been an incredible journey and taken us all over the world sharing good times with beautiful people. Our hearts are full!”

Warpaint’s Theresa Wayman says of ‘Common Blue’, “It started with the chord progression on guitar. Jen and I jammed it in her living room in Echo Park and it became a song. We sent it around the houses (Stella and Emily’s houses) and all its elements were brought to life. It’s intended to inspire freedom! Common blue. Rising up again and again, climb a ladder to the sky, catch the view like a butterfly! Everything is possible… it ain’t over till it’s over!”
