The War On Drugs

. August 21, 2014.

Formed in Philadelphia in 2005 by Adam Granduciel and Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs brings a new brand of Heartland rock to the Heartland. From melodic piano parts and horn sections to dreamy guitar soundscapes and barnstorming drum machine beats, this four-piece outfit brings Big Sound to the rooms they play. Some critics label their style as “shoegazing.” Some call it “indie.” Some liken it to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, while others put the group’s latest album Lost In the Dream in the same family as Wilco’s A Ghost Is Born. Any way you slice it, The War On Drugs has struck the right chord with this one, and their live shows promise just as much as their studio recordings offer.
