Tonight, Wednesday, April 25, The War On Drugs return to late night to make their debut performance on the Late Show with David Letterman! They’ve consistently been on the road …

The War On Drugs Unveil “Brothers” Video

January 26, 2012 drainu182 0

The War On Drugs are excited to share the brand new video for “Brothers,” one of the many highlights off their stellar Slave Ambient. Following the more kaleidoscopic videos for “Baby Missiles” and “Come to the City,” the “Brothers” video, which premiered this morning via NY Mag’s Vulture, definitely takes a different approach with its bleak western narrative. More on the “Brothers” video from the director team of Brewer, a pair of brothers (Ben and Alex), actually, is below.…

With over 60 shows played since the release of Slave Ambient on Secretly Canadian in August, and another 40 ahead on the calendar, The War On Drugs are proving to be one of the hardest working bands around. (If only their van could keep up!) The band’s December tour kicked off this past weekend, leading into a strong finish for 2011 – Lincoln Hall and Bowery Ballroom headlining gigs sold out and a Music Hall of Williamsburg show was announced …

The War On Drugs’ Slave Ambient is out August 16 on Secretly Canadian. Following the release of the instant classic, “Baby Missiles,” we now share with you album centerpiece “Come to the City,” where Adam Granduciel takes things next level. “All roads lead to me/I’ve been moving/I’ve been drifting,” Granduciel howls and moans over its constant beat, and his epic phased Firebird guitars. It’s a modern American outsider miracle; a straight up jam – inducing fist pumps and goose bumps, …

The War On Drugs Set To Release Slave Ambient August 16th

May 16, 2011 drainu182 0

Philadelphia’s The War on Drugs, the vehicle of Adam Granduciel — frontman, rambler, pied piper guitarist and apparent arranger-extraordinaire, is set to release Slave Ambient August 16th on Secretly Canadian.

On their debut, the life-affirming Wagonwheel Blues, and the follow-up EP, Future Weather, The War on Drugs seemed obsessed with disparate ideas, with building uncompromised rock monuments from pieces that may have seemed like odd pairs. Folk-rock marathons come damaged by drum machines. Electronic and instrumental reprises precede …
