The Dandy Warhols are happy to share a video for their single “Catcher In The Rye.” The video was directed by Mike Bruce whose upcoming film Treasure Of The Black Jaguar is being released in January. The Dandy Warhol‘s Courtney Taylor Taylor told NPR “I simply told Mike that the song is about love that doesn’t need anything in return. I’m not even sure that exists but I didn’t tell him that. He did an astounding job. I still get a little choked up by the end.” The video stars Duke Nicholson (Jack Nicholson’s grandson) as Holden Caulfield and Caitlin Carmichael as the young woman. Stereogum have said of the track “it has all the understated, tuneful swagger that you would hope to hear from a new Dandy Warhols song in 2016.” Watch here.
The Dandy Warhols’ newest album Distortland was released earlier this year on Dine Alone Records. Fresh off a sold-out tour of Europe and the UK the band are once again touring the US and Canada with dates both this month and in December. The October run concludes with a 2-night stand at The Scoot Inn in Austin TX on October 14 and 15 and December sees the band playing at Los Angeles’ The Fonda Theatre on December 16. Further, The Dandy Warhols will be touring Australia October 26 through November 5. All dates are listed below.
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.”
