Major News From The War On Drugs As UK Gigs Approach

Article written by Kev W - Jun 14, 2015

It was a bumper year for The War On Drugs in 2014, with their album 'Lost In The Dream' finishing at the top end of most album of the year polls (including ours). That amount of attention was bound to get some major labels sniffing around, and this week the band have announced a two-year deal with Atlantic, following a spell on the independent imprint Secretly Canadian. Frontman Adam Granduciel told Billboard “being on a larger label brings a whole new set of resources and exposure.” Fans across the globe will be able to see the band in action this summer, as this bumper tour is now underway.
