The War On Drugs has announced plans for a new live album ‘LIVE DRUGS’, set for release on 20th November.
The collection features live performances from 2014 to 2019, with tracks from across Adam Granduciel’s catalogue (along with a cheeky Warren Zevon cover too, the devil) sitting alongside each other as if it would on a live setlist.
Speaking about the collection, Adam said: “As a band leader, I always want to know where a song can go. 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.”
Alongside the news, the first cut from the collection has also been revealed - with a version of ‘Pain (Live)’ available to check out below.
