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.
