DOWNLOAD: The War On Drugs - Needle In Your Eye #16 (MP3)

war on Drugs

The War on Drugs return to NYC this week to take part in what was already a killer $10 bill at Mercury Lounge on July 13th. Then they're back again on August 1st to play a show at Union Pool in Brooklyn. The only time I've caught them so far was at Rock n ROFL which was a weird show, so I'm looking forward to giving them another shot. Check out the track above. It's from their recently-released album "Wagonwheel Blues" (out on Secretly Canadian).

Win a pair of tickets to Sunday's Mercury Lounge show by emailing BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: War on Drugs). Include your first and last name. One winner will be picked and contacted. All tour dates below...

War on Drugs is a real shitty live band.

I love this band! They slayed Philly last month at their release show.

great record. Thought their Music Hall of Wburg show was good too, if a little alienating
