“Lost in the Dream achieves something that is rare in today’s pop music: it’s an album that gets better the more you listen to it. For any music, or any novel for that matter, that is an accomplishment of significant merit.”

Premiering today on Vulture:

“‘Under the Pressure’ suggests a certain small-town expanse. To put it another way, it’s music for the open road, when after hours of driving, towns and trees and sunshine and stars and brake lights blur together.”

“Philadelphia rock titans The War on Drugs made a trip up I-95 on Monday for a visit to the Ed Sullivan Theatre and their sophomore appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. In support of their phenomenal third album Lost in the Dream, the band teamed with CBS’ own Paul Schaffer for a jaw-droppingly good rendition of Song of the Year candidate “Red Eyes”. The performance was so good, in fact, that even the competition was raving about it: “Yes!! @warondrugsjams just slayed on Letterman,” Jimmy Fallon music booker Jonathan Cohen tweeted … as his own show was still on the air.” – Consequence Of Sound

The band have announced a second North American tour in support of their latest release, ‘Lost In The Dream’.  Set to hit the road in September, this run expands on March’s previous trip across the region.  Tickets on sale now.  Hope to see you there!
