About The War on Drugs


The War on Drugs is a captivating American rock band that has carved out a distinctive and entrancing sound in the modern music landscape. Founded in Philadelphia in 2005 by frontman Adam Granduciel and Kurt Vile, the band has undergone several lineup changes over the years but has consistently delivered music that resonates deeply with fans and critics alike.

At the heart of The War on Drugs’ music is a blend of rock, folk, and psychedelic elements, characterized by lush, atmospheric instrumentation and Granduciel’s distinctively warm and melancholic vocals. Their sound often evokes a sense of nostalgia, drawing listeners into a sonic world that feels both familiar and refreshingly unique.

The breakthrough moment for the band came with their 2014 album “Lost in the Dream.” Praised for its dreamy, introspective compositions and intricate guitar work, the album garnered widespread acclaim and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. Songs like “Red Eyes” and “Under the Pressure” showcased The War on Drugs’ ability to craft immersive, emotionally resonant music.

Following the success of “Lost in the Dream,” the band continued to evolve and expand their sonic palette with subsequent albums like “A Deeper Understanding” (2017) and “I Don’t Live Here Anymore” (2021). Their music explores themes of introspection, longing, and the complexities of the human experience, often with a cinematic quality that invites listeners on a journey.

The War on Drugs’ live performances are renowned for their epic and transcendent quality, where the band’s studio recordings are given new life through extended instrumentals and a palpable sense of connection with the audience.

With their ability to create emotionally charged, sonically rich landscapes and lyrics that touch on the universal aspects of life and love, The War on Drugs has become a celebrated and influential force in contemporary rock music. They continue to captivate fans with their timeless sound and a commitment to pushing the boundaries of their artistry, solidifying their place as a band that resonates deeply with listeners across the globe.
