The Drums are back in action, with a new single and tour this fall. The new 7" is titled "Magic Mountain" and you can hear a snippet of it in a short video below. One of the ways to get it is to buy advance tickets to their upcoming North American tour which has two NYC shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 16 and Bowery Ballroom on September 20. Presale tickets for those are available now in a variety of packages that can include the single and a poster. Tickets go on sale to the general public for both NYC shows at noon via Ticketmaster.

The most talented member in this band is the guy who is also in Violens.

The music in the clip isn't from "Magic Mountain". It's culled from another track on the album.

Do they still use pre-recorded backing tracks in their "impressive" live show, Mr. PR person?

I don't know guys, I'm a bit concerned after actually hearing the song "Magic Mountain." If that is "the single" I'm even more concerned as it's barely listenable. I think the issue with The Drums is lately they trying so hard to be a certain TYPE of band instead of just embracing what they're actually good at. Their top strength is pop song writing NOT conceptualized dissonance. Their debut was brilliant in it's simplicity and straightforwardness as was the first half of "Portamento." But the 2nd half of that album as well as "Magic Mountain" are all just way too over conceptualized and not memorable. I really hope they don't try to go too far outside the box because it could and probably will backfire. Wheres the juxtaposition of joyous instrumentation and poignant lyricism? Bring back the JOY!
