The War On Drugs announce new album ‘A Deeper Understanding’, share new track ‘Holding On’


It’s been quiet on the, er, Drug front (?) since the Philadelphian indie rockers charmed the world with 2014 breakthrough album ‘Lost In The Dream’, but now The War On Drugs have announced its follow up ‘A Deeper Understanding’, complete with a rather delicious taster in the form of new track ‘Holding On’.

A sun-drenched, five-minute future-classic that channels the vibe of listening to Springsteen with the top down, ‘Holding On’ suggests that Adam Granduciel and co have been using the last three years very wisely. And you can hear the full fruits of their labours on August 25th, when the record is released via Atlantic.
