The Drums are currently streaming a new song, ‘I Can’t Pretend’.

Scroll down to listen to the track, which features on the band’s new album, ‘Encyclopedia’, which is out September 22. The band will play live throughout November, arriving in the UK for a gig at the Scala in London on November 18. The following day they will play Gorilla in Manchester before moving on to Glasgow and the Art School on November 20.


Speaking about the new LP, Johnny Pierce of the band said: “‘Encyclopedia’ is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout. We were feeling very angry, confused, and alone when we made this album; and we wanted to be very honest this time around, even if being honest meant making some people uncomfortable. We’ve left the beach for higher ground, always searching for hope.”

The Drums will play:

London Scala (November 18)
Manchester Gorilla (19)
Glasgow Art School (20)
