The War On Drugs today announce I Don’t Live Here Anymore, their first studio album in four years, out 29th October via Atlantic Records, and a 2022 North American and European tour. In conjunction with today’s announcement, they present its first song and video, Living Proof.
Over the last 15 years, The War on Drugs have steadily emerged as one of this century’s great rock and roll synthesists, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present. The War On Drugs have never done that as well as they do with their fifth studio album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, an uncommon rock album about one of our most common but daunting processes—resilience in the face of despair.
The band will perform at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on April 16th 2022.
