THE WAR ON DRUGS

Philadelphia's The War on Drugs reside at the blurred edges of American music: overexposing studio limitations, piling tape upon tape to maximum density, and then -- with each song -- they pull off the scaffolding to reveal what sticks, keeping only what's absolutely necessary and dig into what sounds like the best kind of fucked up. As on their 2008 debut, Wagonwheel Blues, central member Adam Granduciel takes small moments occurring over multiple tapes and multiple song versions, and puts every last drop of trust in his own keen instinct of momentum.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // The War On Drugs ‘Lost In The Dream’ Out March 18, 2014, Stream New Track “Red Eyes” Now

We’ve been waiting to announce this one for a while, folks. It has been over two years since The War On Drugs‘ critically praised last album, Slave Ambient, was released and the Philadelphia band readies their newest offering, Lost In The Dream for release on March 18th, 2014. Setting up shop along the East Coast in Philadelphia, North Carolina New York, and New Jersey, Adam Granduciel of TWOD somehow found time to record the new album between two years of constant touring. Lost In The Dream is a familiar kick in the gut reminding listeners what music is supposed to sound like, making you want to run Rocky-style through the streets (or at least us anyways).

Listen to the first jam off the newly announced album “Red Eyes” above or on our Soundcloud HERE and YouTube HERE.

Pre-order band’s third full length on iTunes, Amazon, or from your local record store.
