A couple years ago I got to see The War on Drugs at a festival in New York. I had heard of them, but didn’t really know them. I was immediately impressed and they quickly became my favorite new band. Since then everyone has come to know them as the new face of rock and roll culminating with a Grammy for the Best Rock Album of 2017.
The War on Drugs has a dreamy, road trip kind of feel. Almost like a Springsteen meets the Grateful Dead. They bring a real sense of a deeper kind of rock music that you just won’t get on pop radio. They are songs that tell of life experience and of life fully lived. Get to know them and you’ll see what I mean.
