Recorded in a house rented for a month-long period at Joshua Tree National Park and produced by Flood (best known for his work with New Order and PJ Harvey), ‘Warpaint’ is a tighter, more fluid, and more stripped back record than its predecessor, its self-title demonstrating a confidence of songwriting and studio experimentation that comes with their finally-established identity. We toured the last album for so long, I can’t believe that the day has finally arrived that we get to change up our set.” Yeah, because you were touring ‘The Fool’ for, what, 18 months, two years? you can imagine it brought up new depths in our band.
Warpaint are about to hit the road for a long, long tour, but we managed to sneak in a bit of phone time with the band's Theresa Wayman before they leave to talk life on the road, how the band found themselves, and l-o-v-e. “That’s why we ended up calling this album ‘Warpaint’.
The band’s biggest tracks drew the evening to a close, concluding their UK tour.
Following the album's release, Warpaint spent almost a year-and-a-half on the road.
After the tour finished, the women of Warpaint pursued different projects: Jenny Lee Lindberg issued her solo debut Right On!
After a successful showing at CMJ, they signed with Rough Trade and set to work recording their full-length debut for the label.
The Fool arrived in October 2010, featuring more fleshed-out songcraft and stronger performances.
