The War On Drugs Announce US/Europe Tour + New Album

Philadelphia’s The War On Drugs have announced the release of an upcoming album titled Slave Ambient that’s due out August 16th. We’re pretty excited about that to say the least. Along with this ear-worm of an album, they decided to sweeten the deal and announce a 53 (yes) date long tour spanning the US and Europe. This being the case, we’re guessing that everyone in America could see one of their shows if they didn’t mind making a short drive. And lastly, they’ll be playing a show in Georgia on October 13th.

Also, also : Did you know that Kurt Vile helped start The War On Drugs before moving on to his solo career? Now you do! Go to his website and watch the video for “Baby’s Arms”.
