TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Cold War Kids, Hold My Home

Dropped late this past year, the stacked tracks of Cold War Kids’ fifth album Hold My Home proved the band was reinvigorated and ready to roll. And lucky you—we’ve got a vinyl edition we’d love to send your way!

Since their first release in 2006, Cold War Kids have been working their way through a slow and calculated metamorphosis. Moving from the gritty character-driven rock tales of woe that characterized their first two albums, their 2011 and 2013 releases were softer in tone and musicality.

October’s Hold My Home plays like the culmination of the band’s legacy, melding the early raw and brutal with the later subtle and airy for a reinvigorated album, fit for a comeback kid.

This vinyl issue of Hold My Home features the eleven tracks of the original release. The band barrels through the first five tracks, “All This Could Be Yours,” “First,” “Hot Coals,” “Drive Desperate,” and “Hotel Anywhere” with power-pop-rock force; “All This Could Be Yours” features the keywork the band is most known for and “Hotel Anywhere” moves like a lost U2 effort.

Tracks six and seven, “Go Quietly” and “Nights and Weekends,” allow for a quick break before running into the title track, “Hold My Home.” And for the Cold War Kids purists out there, “Harold Bloom” calls on the band’s earlier penchant for tragic hubris.

Hoping a copy of Hold My Home might grace your turntable? Tell us in the comments below which song from the album is your favorite and we’ll send one enthusiastic reader with a North American mailing address their very own vinyl copy.

One winner will be notified directly via email a week from today, January 14, 2015.
