This autumn The War on Drugs are on the road on a huge tour, which includes four dates in the UK…one of which is the 15th November, at Portsmouth Guildhall. The dates are selling out super quick so don’t linger, tickets are available for £29 (inc. fees) HERE!
With six weeks to go until the release of The War On Drugs’ A Deeper Understanding, their fourth album and first on Atlantic Records, out August 25th, the band now presents another song, “Strangest Thing.” It premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record. “Strangest Thing” follows “Holding On,” now top 10 at Triple A radio, and the 11-minute Record Store Day release “Thinking of a Place.”
A Deeper Understanding is The War On Drugs’ first album since 2014’s universally acclaimed Lost In The Dream. Produced by Granduciel and recorded in New York and Los Angeles with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), A Deeper Understanding is a “band record” in the noblest sense featuring bassist Dave Hartley, keyboardist Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez.
