You fool, you'll ruin everything! Warpaint announce debut record The Fool

You fool, get out of the way, you fool! What you’re doing, what you’re doing right now, is ruining everything. Stay out of the way of the laser and, gah, get away from that catapult, and for chrissakes, keep your hand away from that button. I swear, you’re only here to give me a headache. But I guess even you, even you would be interested in knowing that L.A’s Warpaint are releasing a debut full-length through Rough Trade on October 26. And, hey, hey, you pitiful little toadie, they’re even giving it a title you can relate to. It’s called The Fool, that’s what it’s called. It will be their first recording since last year’s Exquisite Corpse EP. You didn’t know that? Of course, you didn’t know that; now get over here before you set off that tripwire.

Not that it matters, since I’ll be sending you off to duty down in the mines (where you surely won’t be able to break, destroy, or in any way inadvertently foil my plots), but Warpaint are also going on tour this fall. Most of their dates will be with heads of hype class 09, The xx. Yes, yes, I do think that’s an awfully odd pairing too — one band deafeningly loud, the other whisper-quiet. I see you’ve got some brains up in there. Now don’t touch that lev…
