The War On Drugs last toured the UK and Ireland this April in support of their fifth studio album, ‘I Don’t Live Here Anymore’, which came out in October 2021.
Reviewing Granduciel and co’s headline appearance at The O2 in London, NME hailed the concert as “a big-hearted, loosely spun rock’n’roll night out”.
Back in September, The War On Drugs shared two previously-unreleased songs – ‘Oceans Of Darkness’ and ‘Slow Ghost’ – as part of an extended deluxe edition of ‘I Don’t Live Here Anymore’.
