DOWNLOAD: The War on Drugs - Comin' Through (MP3)

The War on Drugs @ Knitting Factory Monday night

The War On Drugs

It's been over two years since The War on Drugs released their debut album, Wagonwheel Blues, via Secretly Canadian. And it's via that same label that we'll finally get another taste on October 26th which is the official release date of the band's 2nd album called Future Weather. Grab "Comin' Through", one of that record's eight tracks, for free above now. Cover art and full tracklist below.

Tonight (8/31), The War on Drugs follow up their appearance with Black Mountain at Knitting Factory last night, with a headlining show at the cozy Rock Shop. This time they share a bill with Light Pollution and Xylos.

More about last night's show later. In the meantime, here are some pics, with all tour dates and the new album's cover art and tracklist, below...

I liked their album but I thought they were TERRIBLE live the one time I saw them.

Justin Bieber's mom tucks him in at 9, while the bodyguard ushers in girls through his hotel window at 9:30.

They were pretty good last night. Vocals a little buried in the mix. They went into heavy noise/feedback mode for about the last ten minutes, which I could have done without.

OMG, REALLY??? Which hotel is he staying at?

These guys were totally forgettable last night. When a band ends their set with ten minutes of noise, you wonder who is the bigger dick - the guys on stage not playing an instrument, or you for having watched.

Black Mountain was great.

thought kurt vile was the lead singer, no?

That lead dude looks a lot older (and more of a dirt-bag) than I imagined. Regardless, love the last record - excited to hear the new one.

6:00 PM- Kurt Vile played guitar on the first album, but didn't sing on it. Adam Granduciel is the singer/songwriter... Just to make matters a bit more confusing Adam G is is the guitarist for Kurt Vile's backing band the Violators... It's all great stuff though

they were absolutely terrible at Knitting Factory, every single song was the same exact thing and the ten minutes of noise was incredibly self indulgent crap

Bieber killed it last night.

So when The War on Drugs does noise you lot deride them, but nut yourselves when a new Black Dice album comes out?

I peed myself when Bieber came out on stage!

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 11:52 AM

Bieber was pretty amazing. He came out, brushed his sideswipped hair, didn't a little "oooooo yeah" into the microphone. Everyone lost their shit. Enough said.

Fantastic photos that really capture the energy that pours out of them at every single concert they play at!
