The Dandy Warhols have shared a new track – Catcher In The Rye – off their upcoming new album Distortland which is due April 8th via Dine Alone Records. The single debuted on Stereogum who said, “ it has all the understated, tuneful swagger that you would hope to hear from a new Dandy Warhols song in 2016.”  
The Dandy Warhols have confirmed a tour in support of Distortland.  The dates kick off April 1 in Salt Lake City and include two nights at The Bowery Ballroom  in New York City (April 12 and 13), DC, Boston and more.  More dates are to be confirmed and the full tour is listed below.

The band previously released the single “STYGGO” and Noisey called it, “a hypnotic strut of a song, that never quite peaks so much as lures you with singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor’s vocals low and lulling in the mix. They’re urging you to lean in that little bit closer.”   The Dandy Warhols have also shared the infectious “You Are Killing Me” which AV Club said  “features a sparse arrangement consisting of straightforward, chugging, overdriven guitar, multi-tracked vocals, and slightly off kilter harmonies. Everything about the new tune, from the instrumentation to the lyrics, comes off as effortless, but the simplistic hook is memorable enough that heads will surely nod.”  Diffuser noted “the song sports a chugging guitar riff and an earwormy hook” and Austin Town Hall said, “the choral hook will surely have you turning back again and again.”
Formed in Portland, Oregon, The Dandy Warhols consist of members Courtney Taylor-Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmström (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums).   Distortland was first recorded in Taylor’s basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe – best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce – mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is “organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there.”
