Just call them Girls with Guitars.
Since its inception, the lineup of Warpaint has included Emily Kokal (vocals, guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitar, vocals) and Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, backing vocals). Stella Mozgawa (drums) then joined the group back in 2009, and since then they've received lofty praise from critics and fans the world over. Rolling Stone even went as far as to call them one of the best indie rock jams at Coachella.
The ladies were in good company when they hooked up with former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante back in 2008. He mixed and mastered Warpaint's debut EP, "Exquisite Corpse," with RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer on drums and guitar. The EP went to the top of the Los Angeles Amoeba Records local artist chart, and was released worldwide in 2009 to critical acclaim. In no time at all, Warpaint was signed to Rough Trade Records, and later began touring throughout the United States and Europe, including an opening slot for The xx.
On October 25, 2010, the band released its long-awaited debut album, "The Fool." It was a critical darling from the outset, with a remix of the single, "Shawdows (Neon Lights Remix)" getting playlisted by BBC Radio 1.
Warpaint found its audience – broad and ever-growing – at places like Bonnaroo, Glastonbury Festival, Reading and Leeds Festival, Coachella, Electric Picnic and more. The ladies put forth a sophomore effort in 2014, rolling out a self-titled album they called "more than standard rock." A video, composed of a two-song vignette from the recent album, features professional skateboards Justin Eldridge, Kris Markovich and Patrick Melcher.
