New Track: "Red Eyes" - The War on Drugs & Announce Album Release and Tour Dates

We've been looking forward to this announcement ever since learning from Adam Granduciel last winter that he had booked time at Mitch Easter's studio in North Carolina to work on new material with Uniform Recording's Jeff Zeigler. The War on Drugs just announced today a release date for their third full-length album entitled Lost In The Dream, which will be March 18, 2014 via Secretly Canadian. You can take a listen to its lead single, "Red Eyes," below. The band will be kicking off their North American on March 18 at Union Transfer.


The War on Drugs Close Out 2012 w/Sold Out Shows at JB’s Dec. 30 & 31

This year saw The War on Drugs continuing their touring ways in support of 2011’s critically-acclaimed album Slave Ambient and performing at huge events like Lollapalooza and the CBGB Festival. Adam Granduciel recently mentioned that he has booked some studio time down south in March to begin recording new material, which is always good to hear. But judging by the time it took for their most recent LP to be finished, who knows when it will see the light of day? I’m guessing that only the rock gods do. Well, before all that occurs, the band will be wrapping up 2012 with two SOLD OUT shows at Johnny Brenda’s that will see a portion of the ticket proceeds going to MANNA. Tonight they’ll be joined by Alex Bleeker and the Freaks (featuring members of Real Estate) and Arc in Round, who also had a good year thanks to their self-titled LP being released via La Société Expéditionnaire. The War on Drugs’ New Year’s Eve bash will feature performances by the impressive Avery Rosewater and the explosive guitar-laden dirge of Purling Hiss. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford St., 9pm, Dec. 30 & Dec. 31 SOLD OUT, 21+ - Bill McThrill


New Video: “Arms Like Boulders” (Austin City Limits) - The War on Drugs

Aww…here’s a live performance video of The War on Drugs performing an oldie but goodie “Arms Like Boulders” (with new drummer Pat Berkery) at Austin City Limits this past Friday. This song always makes us feel good inside.
BTW: Johnny Brenda's just announced that The War on Drugs will be performing two shows December 30 & 31 to help ring in the New Year. Tickets go on sale this Thursday so make sure you hop on them quickly because we predict that both nights will sell out. (Photo by Glen Brown)
