Catch Warpaint at The Triffid, supported by special guest. They're also playing shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

This will be Warpaint's third tour of Australia after very successful headline shows nationally and festival appearances at Laneway and Splendour In The Grass. Their live performances continue to dazzle, and recent shows and airing of their new tracks live have been met with much delight to fans and critics alike.

The band’s studio albums (including 2014’s Warpaint) tend to emphasize moody atmospheres: gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves. In concert, however, the Los Angeles quartet—vocalist/guitarist Emily Kokal, vocalist/guitarist Theresa Wayman, bassist/vocalist Jenny Lee Lindberg and drummer/keyboardist Stella Mozgawa—pair this moodiness with bumped-up tempos and sinewy beats.

Confounding expectations has been part of Warpaint’s m.o. since the band formed in 2004. And so when the band convened to make their third studio album, Heads Up, they shared a common goal: to make a faster, dance-oriented record.

“We’ve always had this really jammy, high-energy live show compared to some of our records,” Kokal says. “We all love to dance. We didn’t want to take away from the emotion or the core feeling of what our band is all about—which I don’t even think we could take out if we wanted, because it is who we are—but we wanted to bump the speed up and have a little bit more fun.”
