Twenty years ago, in a small studio on Fairfax Boulevard in Los Angeles, Warpaint was born. To mark the anniversary, they have announced the release of a new 7” single, "Common Blue" b/w "Underneath".

For their first new material in two years, Warpaint reunited with Rough Trade, the label behind their debut album and creative home for most of their existence. “It makes us smile to release them in collaboration with friends and family at Rough Trade,” the band say, continuing “It feels like a perfect return to where it all began! With these new songs we tie a bow around this time in our lives, and all the experiences and songs we’ve shared over the years. It’s been an incredible journey and taken us all over the world sharing good times with beautiful people. Our hearts are full!”

Warpaint’s Theresa Wayman says of "Common Blue": “It started with the chord progression on guitar. Jen and I jammed it in her living room in Echo Park and it became a song. We sent it around the houses (Stella and Emily’s houses) and all its elements were brought to life. It’s intended to inspire freedom! Common blue. Rising up again and again, climb a ladder to the sky, catch the view like a butterfly! Everything is possible… it ain’t over till it’s over!”

The 7" vinyl release of "Common Blue" b/w "Underneath", is out on 22 March via Rough Trade Records.
