The War on Drugs will return to the UK this July for two Liverpool dates. 

The band will bring their show, hailed by The Guardian as ‘wistful, immersive rock turned up to 11’ , to the city to headline a sold out Mountford Hall on Tuesday July 9th with a brand new date added on Monday July 8th due to phenomenal demand. 

Two further sold-out nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London mark the band’s first ever concerts at the iconic and historic venue on the 11th and 12th of July. 

The War on Drugs have steadily emerged as one of this century’s great rock and roll synthesists, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present. 

Led by Adam Granduciel, The New Yorker called them “the best American ‘rock’ band of this decade” in support of their album, A Deeper Understanding, for which they won the 2018 Grammy for Best Rock Album and were nominated for a BRIT Award for International Group of the Year. 

2020 saw the release of LIVE DRUGS featuring live interpretations of songs throughout their career, including off their 2014 breakthrough, Lost In The Dream. 

Co-produced by Granduciel and Shawn Everett, their fifth studio album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, “chips away some of their hazier edges in favor of sharper melodies, broadening the borders of the meticulous yet joyously simple sound [Granduciel] has perfected” (Pitchfork, Best New Music). 

It landed on numerous 2021 best albums of the year lists and garnered a second GRAMMY Award nomination (Best Rock Song) and BRIT Award nomination.
