The Dandy Warhols Collection: The Capitol Years: 1995-2007 On Now On Capitol/EMI; First Compilation Release Features 14 Dandy Classics and One New Song

A new CD and digital collection of 14 Dandy Warhols standout singles and album tracks, plus a new song, will be released by Capitol/EMI in North America on 24 August 2010. The Capitol Years: 1995-2007 is the Dandy Warhols’ first compilation release, spotlighting the influence the Portland, Oregon-based band has had, and continues to have, on modern music.

The Capitol Years: 1995-2007 is comprised of material culled from the Dandy Warhols’ four Capitol Records releases, The Dandy Warhols Come Down (1996), Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia (2000), Welcome To The Monkey House (2003), and Odditorium or Warlords of Mars (2005), plus a new song, “This Is The Tide,” which is exclusive to this release, and two tracks from The Dandy Warhols Are Sound (original mixes of The Monkey House, released in 2009), making it an essential addition to the Dandys’ recorded canon.

The Dandy Warhols Come Down, the band's second album and Capitol debut, was released in 1996 in the U.S. and in 1997 in Europe. The band first garnered international attention with "Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth."

Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia followed, and their audience grew: they now played to hundreds of thousands of rabid fans at festivals all over the world.

In 2003, Welcome To The Monkey House showcased Warhols experimenting with an ‘80s keyboard-driven sound.

Odditorium or Warlords of Mars was the first album the Dandy Warhols recorded at the Odditorium, the band’s new recording studio/practice space in Portland.

In 2008, setting out on their own, the band released Earth To The Dandy Warhols on their new label, Beat The World Records. Last summer, they released the original Russell Elevado (a GRAMMY-award winning soul mixing engineer) mixes of Welcome To The Monkey House under the title The Dandy Warhols Are Sound.

The Dandy Warhols will tour to major music festivals and theatres across Europe, followed by North American dates into the fall. European festivals confirmed to date include Switzerland’s Blue Balls Festival, France’s Rock Festival and Secretes Festival, and Portugal’s Coura Festival. Additional dates will be announced.
