The War on Drugs

The War on Drugs played two NYC shows this past weekend that took place at Cameo Gallery on Friday (8/19) and Mercury Lounge on Saturday (8/20). The Cameo show was with the impressive lineup of both Caveman and Porcelain Raft, and the Mercury show was with Porcelain Raft and Arc in Round. We’ve got pictures and videos from the Brooklyn show (Cameo) in this post.

The War on Drugs released the Slave Ambient LP on Secretly Canadian last week (8/16). You can order the album in a number of different formats at the Secretly Canadian webstore. The video for album track “Baby Missiles” is below and a free download of the track is HERE. The band will tour this fall with Purling Hiss and Carter Tanton. No NYC date has been announced for that tour (yet?). It took a few years for The War on Drugs to work out their kinks, but the band has really come into their own now. If Bill is right, we won’t be seeing War on Drugs in venues as small as Cameo for much longer. All dates are listed below.

Caveman is continuing to to tour with The War On Drugs for the next few weeks. After that Caveman will play their own Mercury Lounge show (9/15) with JPF.
