The War On Drugs by Dusdin Condren

The War On Drugs by Dusdin Condren

Philadelphia’s The War On Drugs released their third album, Lost In The Dream, on March 18th. For this record, central member Adam Granduciel approaced album construction differently. Instead of building the core of songs himself, he worked more with touring bandmates David Hartley and Robbie Bennett. “I wanted there to be a singular voice, but I wanted it to be a project of great friends. Everyone in the band cares about it so much,” Granduciel says. “That is the crux of it—growing up, dealing with life, having close friends, helping each other get by. That is what the record’s all about.” Download “Red Eyes” from Lost In The Dream and learn more about The War On Drugs at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
