After taking some time away from each other to concentrate on solo projects, the members of Los Angeles band Warpaint released their album back in September with a new album, Heads Up.

“I feel really proud of what we made—almost surprised and shocked,” bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg . “When we were making it, I was like, ‘I wonder what this is going to sound like? How’s this going to come together?’ I love the way that it came together so nicely. I feel so proud of it, and like it’s an evolution of our band. It sounds like a mature version of Warpaint.”

Heads Up is Warpaint’s third full-length album and first since 2014’s self titled album. Late last year, Lindberg released Right On.  After a solo record under the name jennylee. In addition, guitarist/singer Theresa Wayman formed Boss with Sarah Jones and Guro Gikling  and put out a single called “I’m Down With That.” Another member of Warpaint, Emily Kokal, appeared on songs by Saul Williams and Paul Bergmann.

Warpaint played a handful of European festival dates during the August period. When the hazy LA rockers released ‘New Song’ in early August, it was a complete surprise: Warpaint does pop. There’s more where that came from on third album ‘Heads Up – ‘By Your Side’, ‘So Good’ – but they still remain true to the moody atmosphere of their previous work elsewhere.
