Even with their last album, Lost In The Dream, The War On Drugs set the bar of indie rock amazingly high. In 2017 they do it again, with their new, now fourth studio album "A Deeper Understanding".

For more than three years, mastermind Adam Granduciel experimented in various studios in New York and Los Angeles, writing new songs and recording them. He worked closely with his bandmates David Hartley (bass), Robbie Bennett (keyboards), Charlie Hall (drums) and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez.

The result is ten brand new songs, including the single "Thinking Of A Place" and the first official single "Holding On". Both songs make it clear that The War On Drugs remain true to their unmistakable signature sound on "A Deeper Understanding",

And so, once again, the new record is an impressive blend of indie rock and Americana, synth-heavy psychedelic rock and '80s dream pop.

The War On Drugs simply have a profound understanding of music. "A Deeper Understanding" is the name of the proof.

"Bye-bye, subtlety - hello, radioability! Unabashedly great rock music." (Rolling Stone, September 2017)
