Warpaint

Warpaint is an American experimental art rock group from Los Angeles, formed in 2004. The band consists of Emily Kokal (vocals, guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitar, vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums, keyboards). The band’s membership has also included actress Shannyn Sossamon and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. Warpaint released their debut EP, Exquisite Corpse, in 2009, followed by their full length album, The Fool, released on 25 October 2010.
On 6 December 2010, the BBC announced that Warpaint had been nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2011 poll and they were the cover stars of Beat magazine’s Winter 2010 launch issue.

Warpaint formed in Los Angeles on Valentine’s Day, 2004. The original line-up consisted of childhood friends, Theresa Wayman and Emily Kokal, alongside sisters, Shannyn Sossamon and Jenny Lee Lindberg. The band played in the Los Angeles area for three years, writing songs (”Stars”, “Beetles”, and “Elephants”) which would eventually comprise their debut EP, Exquisite Corpse.

The band began recording their debut EP, Exquisite Corpse, in December 2007, with producer Jacob Bercovici. The sessions took over two months and concluded with mixing and mastering by then-current Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. Warpaint self-released the EP in 2008, which quickly moved to #1 on the Los Angeles Amoeba Records local artist chart. In 2009, Exquisite Corpse was re-released worldwide on Manimal Vinyl records to critical acclaim.

‘The Fool’ has reached #41 in the UK charts and even broke 200 on US charts. Warpaint plays an experimental that is quite unique.
