Warpaint to release 'The Fool' in October (updated)

325t According to NME, Warpaint, our local practitioners of wooze rock, will be releasing their Rough Trade debut in October. "The Fool" will come out Oct. 26 in the U.S. (and Oct. 25 in the U.K.) with production by Jon Brion collaborator Tom Biller, who also recently manned the mix for the Liars' fantastic "Sisterworld" album.

The new record should be the crowning touch on a great fall for the L.A. quartet: They also snagged a high-profile opening slot with the xx, the current darlings of minimalist indie R&B. The two bands will be passing through the Hollywood Palladium on Sept. 22.

In addition to Biller's work, "The Fool" also features mixes from Siouxsie Sioux and New Order DJ-collaborator Andrew Weatherall, and Adam Samuels, who has worked with John Frusciante, a key advocate for Warpaint (he mixed their Manimal Vinyl EP, "Exquisite Corpse").

Track listing for "The Fool":

"Set Your Arms"
"Warpaint" *
"Undertow"
"Bees"
"Shadows"
"Composure"
"Baby"
"Majesty"
"Lissie’s Heart Murmur" *

-- Margaret Wappler

*By the way, Pop & Hiss is very encouraged by any band that references its own name in song, as well as heart murmurs; we have one too.

Updated: We added the U.S. release date of Oct. 26.
