Cold War KidsCold War Kids – Matt Aveiro (drums) , Matt Maust (bass), Jonnie Russell (guitar), Nathan Willett (vocals/piano) – began in the fall of '04 with jangly guitar, handclaps, and a Harmony amp in a storage room atop a restaurant in Fullerton, CA. Using songs of Dylan, Billie Holiday, and the Velvet Underground as a road map, they listened to their tiny inner voice to manipulate and structure their honest musical style. In 2005/2006 Cold War Kids self-released three six song EP's (Mulberry Street, Up in Rags, and With our Wallets Full) and toured relentlessly, sometimes with compadres Tapes ‘n Tapes and Two Gallants.

The band recently signed with Downtown Records, the young Manhattan-based home to such talents as Gnarls Barkley and Eagles of Death Metal. With the deal signed, the band regrouped to the studio and recorded their impressive and striking debut Robbers & Cowards in a matter of weeks. The album includes favorite material from their previous EPs such as "Hospital Beds" and "Hang Me Up To Dry" as well as new tracks such as "God, Make Up Your Mind."
