The War on Drugs Unveil First Studio Album in Four Years, ‘I Don’t Live Here Anymore’

·2 min read

The War on Drugs will release “I Don’t Live Here Anymore,” their first studio album since 2017’s “A Deeper Understanding,” on October 29 on Atlantic Records. A North American and European tour scheduled to follow next year, including a date at Madison Square Garden.

The group previews the album with its first song and video, “Living Proof” — watch it below.

The album began after the group received the 2018 Grammy for Best Rock Album, with frontman/guitarist Adam Granduciel, bassist Dave Hartley and multi-instrumentalist Anthony LaMarca hammering out demos in Upstate New York. The album was recorded over the following three years, helmed by Granduciel and co-producer/engineer Shawn Everett, with the band — also including keyboardist Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall, and saxophonist Jon Natchez — recording the songs as a unit, rather than the piecemeal approach it has taken in the past.

The full North American and European itinerary is below; tickets go on sale here on Friday, July 23rd at 10 a.m. local time.
