The War on Drugs: A Deeper Understanding

It has been getting increasingly hard to find anything resembling just good rock n roll. The heirs to the ones that have left us either haven’t found their footing or haven’t earned the trust of that particular audience.

The War on Drugs come damn near close with their newest release, A Deeper Understanding, an album full of late night driving songs that can be played on repeat without ever noticing they’ve been repeated. The album is full of 80s rock influence, and slow, simple, acoustic driven numbers that tread a line ...

The War On Drugs hit new emotional depths in “Nothing To Find”video

On first listen, the most noticeable thing about The War On Drugs“Nothing To Find” from recent album A Deeper Understanding is its sunny, classic rock-inspired sheen. With that lighthearted tone in mind, the song’s new music video, out now, may catch you off guard with its touching emotional depth.

The video takes us on a surprisingly gripping journey, making use of the six-plus minutes the track allows to relay a heartfelt story with a nice heavy dose of the space rockers’ signature quirk (see: the dude covered in plants). ...

Watch The War on Drugs cover Neil Young in Toronto

When in Toronto, cover Neil Young. At least, that must’ve been what The War on Drugs were thinking when they paid tribute to the legendary Young in his hometown with a rendition of “Like A Hurricane.” Lucky for us, the moment was captured on video, which you can watch below.

As great as Philly favorites The War on Drugs are on their own, they’re also masters of covering the work of others. The band recently performed Tom Petty’s “Time To Move On” at a show in Los Angeles.

Easygoing Vibes, Explosive Force: The War on Drugs makes a powerful homecoming at The Dell for a good cause

When it was announced that Connor Barwin’s fourth annual Make The World Better Foundation fundraising concert was being held at the Dell Music Center and that The War On Drugs would headline, questions arose. For some, the question was “What the heck is The Dell?” and for those familiar with the city-run venue in Fairmount, the question was “Why The Dell?” The answer to the latter is that the venue is looking to throw in an occasional rock or country band to their normal summer mix of funk, R&B and soul ...
