The Philadelphia rock band's new album, 'I Don’t Live Here Anymore', arrives on October 29th via Atlantic Records.
Pennsylvania rock outfit The War On Drugs have announced a 3Arena Dublin show, set to take place on April 14th, 2022 to support their forthcoming new album.
As part of their upcoming North American and European tour, the band will perform in some of the largest venues they’ve ever played, including their debut headlining show at Madison Square Garden, plus Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, two nights at the Chicago Theatre, Philadelphia’s Metropolitan and the House of Blues in Boston.
Details of their upcoming project, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, their first studio album in four years, were also announced today. The album will be out October 29th on Atlantic Records.
The 'Living Proof' video, directed by filmmaker Emmett Malloy, and shot on 16mm, captures Granduciel at the historic Panoramic studio in Stinson Beach, California.
Over the last 15 years, The War on Drugs have steadily emerged as one of this century’s great rock and roll synthesists, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present. The War On Drugs have never done that as well as they do with their fifth studio album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, an uncommon rock album about one of our most common but daunting processes—resilience in the face of despair.
On The War On Drugs’ 2017 LP, A Deeper Understanding, frontman Adam Granduciel sang about his ongoing search for greater meaning. Along the way, the band have grown with each record. In the aftermath of their fourth album, they won a Grammy for Best Rock Album.
The New Yorker even called them “the best American ‘rock’ band of this decade.” Even The Rolling Stones recognised Granduciel’s talents, inviting him to remix their long lost collaboration with Jimmy Page, 'Scarlet' - which was previously an unreleased gem from Goats Head Soup. By every account, The War On Drugs are now firmly embedded in the classic rock lineage.
Tickets for their 3Arena Dublin show from €48.50 (including booking fee) will go on sale this Friday, July 23rd at 10am via Ticketmaster.
