The Dandy Warhols announce 25th anniversary tour + details on new album

In 2019, popular rock band The Dandy Warhols are celebrating their 25th anniversary in style with a new album, Why You So Crazy (Dine Alone Records), a single-shot 360° short film featuring Mad Men’s Jessica Paré for the single “Be Alright,” and a 2019 tour of Europe, the UK and North America, as well as exclusive goodies available via PledgeMusic. “The weirdest thing about it being ‎our 25th anniversary is it doesn’t feel like 25 years. Feels like about six. Or five,” muses frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor.

The band came to international attention with their 2000 album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemiaoften being paired with the 1997 effort Come Down as their most critically adored records. The single “Bohemian Like You” ended up receiving a long time in the spotlight after being featured prominently in a Vodafone commercial.
“Back in 2002, the Dandy Warhols bought a ten thousand square foot building in what was then industrial NW Portland and created The Odditorium, a place that soon became their band headquarters, recording studio, and hang out for them and all their friends and fellow artists,” says Moyer. “I’ve been there many times and it is such a cool and ethereal place, full of psychedelia and gothic touches and auras, that it just makes your head spin trying to take all of it in as you walk through the unique rock n roll space. So what better way than to use a head spinning media format to take the viewer on a magical journey through the Dandy Warhols own space and sound, with the new single ‘Be Alright’ making things exactly that along the way.”

“We’ve always been driven to create art with emotional clarity,” says Taylor-Taylor. “That’s what the world needs more than ever right now. I’ve never felt so strongly that people are losing their minds, and it’s more of them than ever before. Local politics, international politics, news programs, sitcoms, and our president all feel like the heat got turned up. It doesn’t feel like a natural progression of insanity, it just happened. Most people are behaving in a manner that can only be described as batshit crazy.”
