The Drums announce new album & tour (listen to “Body Chemistry”)


The Drums are back with new album Brutalism which is out April 5 via ANTI-. Main man Jonny Pierce produced the record himself and the first single is “Body Chemistry” which Pierce says is a cornerstone for the album. “For the year prior to writing this song, I had been dealing with an increased feeling of depression. To counter that, I was doing all I could do to try and make myself feel good: implementing all sorts of self-care, going to therapy, eating well, exercising at the gym, taking a step back from partying, and focusing on positive relationships while weeding out the not-so-good ones” Jonny says. “I still found myself weighed down with anxiety and depression. This song asks the question: Is this dull, sad feeling in my DNA? Is it part of my gene pool? Can it ever be corrected? I had been confronting some of my most stubborn demons, and I came to realize that confronting doesn’t always mean conquering.” Listen to “Body Chemistry” below.

Jonny will be taking The Drums on the road this spring with Tanukichan, hitting Chicago, Toronto, Philly, Nashville, Atlanta, and more. There are three NYC-area shows: Mercury Lounge on May 7, then Asbury Lanes on May 8 and Brooklyn’s Warsaw on May 10. Tickets for Mercury Lounge and Asbury Lanes go on sale Friday, January 18 at 10 AM and Warsaw goes on sale at noon, with various presales starting on Wednesday (1/16).

All tour dates are listed below.
