Three years removed from their last studio album, 2017's Grammy-winning 'A Deeper Understanding', The War On Drugs next record will showcase the band's live chops.

'Live Drugs' is a collection of live renditions the group have collated from more than 40 hard drives across years of touring and multiple releases.

Sequenced to reflect how a typical 70-minute show would flow, the first taste of 'Live Drugs' is 'Pain' from the aforementioned 'A Deeper Understanding'.



"As a band leader, I always want to know where a song can go," Adam Granduciel explains.

"Even though we've recorded it, mastered it, put it out, and been touring on it, it doesn't mean that we just have to do it the same way forever.

"It feels like it's kind of a reset, to be able to put something out that's a really good interpretation of the way we interpret our music live.

"Even though this recording is from a year of tours, this is really how these six guys evolved as a band from 2014 to 2019."

The band have also spent the past six months working on their next studio album.

'Live Drugs' is released on 20 November, 2020. Pre-order it.
