Warpaint played MHOW (pics, setlist), talk touring w/ Harry Styles
Heading home from their European tour, Warpaint stopped in NYC on Tuesday (7/18) to play a free Steve Madden presented show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Their set pulled pretty equally from new album Heads Up and older stuff like “Undertow,” “Keep it Healthy” and “Love is to Die.” Check out the setlist below and pictures from the night, including ones of openers New Myths, are in the gallery above.
“I’m super grateful and so excited to play for an audience that would never necessarily know who our band is, because Harry Styles and Warpaint are not necessarily in the same genre of music. I’m not a snob, when it comes to that. I do like his solo record. I think he’s rad. I watched the One Direction documentary on the plane years ago and I fell in love with all of those boys and how hard they work. It’s not the same genre, but fuck it, all music should be like that. I think there should be more shows like that, where it’s eclectic. Introduce people to different kinds of music. It doesn’t just have to be one thing. He actually asked us to go. He’s a really big fan of Stella — he really loves her drumming. So he was like, “Hey, do you guys wanna open up?” And it was like, “Fuck, yeah, that sounds amazing.” In Asia, crowds we have never ever played in front of. I’m stoked.”
Before the Harry Styles dates, Warpaint will be out with Depeche Mode, including two shows at NYC’s Madison Square Garden on September 9 & 11.
