The Drums' new album, Encyclopedia, will be out September 23 and the band have shared a new single, "Kiss Me Again," which is a little more like their classic sound than we heard on the punky 'Magic Mountain." You can stream that below. If you want to hear more, The Drums made a pretty clever album trailer that offers up snippets of a bunch of LP tracks, plus some light comedy. You can watch that below too.
Right before their album is released, The Drums will play an acoustic afternoon show at Rough Trade on Sunday, September 21. To get in you need to either buy the new album in any format or the "Magic Mountain" 7" from the Rough Trade store that day, and you'll get two wristbands into the show.
Before that, you can catch The Drums in full electric mode when their tour hits NYC for two sold-out shows next week -- Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 16 and Bowery Ballroom on September 20. Beverly open both shows and Literature also play the Bowery show (and two of their own shows that week).
Speaking of, Beverly have a new video for "All the Things" that finds the band enjoying a day at the waterpark. You can watch that below.
Updated dates for The Drums are listed, along with streams and videos, also below...
