Riding high on the strength of the video and single for “Hang Me Up To Dry,” The Cold War Kids have been chosen for the Spring 2007 class of the mtvU “Freshman Five.” The band is kicking off a tour of the U.S. in February in support of their current album ‘Robbers & Cowards’ (Downtown).

They will be profiled on-air, online and on the handset, showcasing their videos, unreleased albums, behind-the-scenes interviews, exclusive live performances and more. The video will also air on MTV2’s Subterranean.

What’s more is the Cold War Kids are one of three bands chosen to perform at MySpace’s Secret Show 1st Anniversary Party! This exclusive event takes place on February 22nd in Hollywood.
