THE DANDY WARHOLS: WHY YOU SO CRAZY?
In 1994 The Dandy Warhols were formed in Portland, Oregon, in the shadow of the twilight years of the grunge scene. With Brit‐pop reigning supreme on the other side of the pond, and influences ranging from 1960s garage rock to 80s/90s shoegaze, The Dandy Warhols began a career that would see them release nine studio albums, two compilation albums and 27 singles over a 25 year period.
Never a band to passively let life happen, The Dandy Warhols will be using 2019 and their 25th Anniversary as a time to not only celebrate the past, but also look into their future. They will begin the next phase of their trajectory with a continuation of their unfiltered creative streak ‐ the release of their 10th studio album Why You So Crazy (Dine Alone Records).
The album will see The Dandy Warhols return in singularly freewheeling fashion, careening through classically off‐kilter psych‐pop (‘Be Alright’), country‐fried Americana (‘Motor City Steel’), and gothic piano‐propelled rumbas (‘Forever’). Packing in references as far flung as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Don MacLean’s Chevy, and the church of Bowie’s ‘Modern Love,’ these 12 songs reflect the band’s surrealist visions of an alternate reality. Offering an escape from a culture driven to the brink, The Dandy Warhols are progressing into the next chapter of their self‐described “25 year act of sonic rebellion.”
