“So yeah, that was just like a totally electric time that was very special. Like a total shared vision and all this stuff.” The Southern California indie rock band Cold War Kids is celebrating its 20th anniversary with shows in Los Angeles and Pioneertown. Seen here are singer-guitarist/pianist Nathan Willett, left, and bassist Matt Maust, the two original members left in the band.

There’s a terrific recent record, the band’s 10th studio album, which, oddly, is the first to be self-titled. “I had almost a weird, almost ill-fated feeling about music,” he says. “I had friends in punk bands that went on tour and burned out very quickly. That was a very, very, very Orange County and Southern California type of thing that was happening around us.

“And, of course, the thing that happened there was this big group of friends, all these kind of art-school kids that I had never been exposed to before,” he says.

At 44, Willett also has a family outside of his work, a home life with his wife and three daughters between the ages of 3 and 9. “Another Name,” one of Willett’s favorites on the record, is a different kind of breakup song, written after his therapist of many years told him she was leaving her practice and would no longer be able to see him.
