The War On Drugs have just announced their latest fourth full-length album, A Deeper Understanding, their first album since 2014, which is due for release on the August 25.
The band has already released an 11-minute track, Thinking of a Place, off the upcoming album on Record Store Day, and more recently followed it up with the album’s lead single, Holding On.
For the majority of the last three and a half years the band’s frontman Adam Granduciel has been holed up in the studio writing, recording, editing and perfecting the latest record.
The 10 track album is described as a “band record” with bassist Dave Hartley, keyboardist Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez all contributing to the creative process.
Holding On is out now. A Deeper Understanding is released on August 25.
