In his free time, Evan Loring enjoys playing sports, traveling, and listening to music. His list of favorite bands includes Pearl Jam, Florence and the Machine, and Cold War Kids.
A California-based indie rock band formed in 2004, Cold War Kids released their first full-length album, Robbers & Cowards, to a fair amount of acclaim in 2006. Featuring the tracks Hang Me Up to Dry, We Used to Vacation, and Saint John, the album introduced audiences to the band’s bluesy take on indie music and showcased their flair for musical storytelling.
After spending the next few years on the road, Cold War Kids released Loyalty to Loyalty in 2008 and eventually followed it up with their third full-length album, 2011’s Mine Is Yours, which was produced by Grammy winner Jacquire King. Following a minor shakeup in the band, Cold War Kids regrouped for their fourth album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, in 2013 and their fifth album, Hold My Home, the following year.
Along with their full-length studio releases, Cold War Kids have also produced live albums and several EPs, including Mulberry Street, With Our Wallets Full, and Behave Yourself. Currently, the band is on tour promoting their latest album, L.A. Divine, which was released in April 2017.
