June 4, 2013 — New York, NY — In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, Capital Cities’ debut album, was released today by Capitol Records, in partnership with Lazy Hooks. The group will make its national television debut on “Conan” this Thursday, June 6, and perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on July 10.

Produced by founders/frontmen Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian – two Los Angeles-based jingle writers who met on Craigslist – In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery includes the multi-format radio smash “Safe and Sound,” which is Number 1 at the Modern Rock format, Top 20 at Triple A and within the Top 40 at Top 40 radio. Praised by RollingStone.com for the way it merges “high-energy dance beats with unbridled optimism and joy,” “Safe and Sound” has already sold more than 260,000 copies and is featured on the NOW 45 compilation.

The videos that Capital Cities has made for “Safe and Sound” have more than 4 million views cumulatively. The latest – lensed by Grady Hall (Beck, Modest Mouse), a writer-director and creative director at GRAMMY®-winning Motion Theory – is being played on MTV, MTV2, Teen Nick, Fuse, Music Choice, Palladia, mtvU and MTV Hits.
