THE WAR ON DRUGS “Live Drugs” limited purple 2LP. Released 20th November 2020

Culled from over 40 hard drives of recorded live shows spread out
across years of touring behind multiple critically acclaimed records,
LIVE DRUGS is unlike anything previously available in The War on
Drugs’ catalog.
The first volume to capture the band’s live interpretations, LIVE
DRUGS is a document showcasing the evolution of the band’s live
show over the years. Additionally, LIVE DRUGS is a portrait of the
enduring relationship between Adam Granduciel and Dominic East. A
longtime friend, guitar tech and stage manager, East is LIVE DRUGS’s
co-producer and the presence Granduciel credits as holding
everything together.
Sequenced to reflect how a typical 70-minute set would flow, LIVE
DRUGS thrives on live set staples immortalized on record for the first
time. This includes “Buenos Aires Beach” from the band’s 2008 fulllength debut, Wagonwheel Blues, and the longtime musical interlude
flowing between “Under the Pressure” and “In Reverse” – which
bookend 2014’s Lost In The Dream. There’s also the band’s essential
cover of Warren Zevon’s “Accidentally like a Martyr” – a song “so true,
you should ever be lucky to write a song that simple,” Granduciel
says.
