Our Overview. 

Portland Indie rockers The Dandy Warhols are releasing their tenth studio album ‘Why You So Crazy’ to kick off their 25th Anniversary and the band are as eclectic-sounding as ever on the forthcoming album.

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.”

“We’ve always been driven to create art with emotional clarity,” concludes 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.”

With the future stretching out ahead of them, and an impressive back catalogue behind them, 2019 promises to be both a celebration of the past and a glimpse into the unknown of what’s yet to come.
