Listen: The War on Drugs release second official single from upcoming LP with ‘Pain’
Atlantic Records

The War on Drugs have released the second official single from their upcoming album, A Deeper Understanding, which is set to arrive in a few weeks on Aug. 25. Released on Friday, “Pain” acts as the album’s second official single, and follows the previously shared “Holding On,” “Thinking of a Place” and “Strangest Thing,” all of which are available for streaming on Spotify.

The band, which primarily consists of its principle songwriter/singer/guitarist, Adam Granduciel, gave fans the first hint of new music since 2014’s Lost in the Dream back in the spring when they announced “Thinking of a Place” would get a limited release a few months early for Record Store Day. Since then, Granduciel has not only shared a few more songs set to appear on the upcoming album, but have also started their appearances on the late night television circuit in addition to announcing their run of 2017 world tour dates starting on Sept. 21.

The audio-only video for “Pain,” which contains the album’s title in its lyrics, can be watched above. Tickets for select shows on their upcoming fall 2017 tour are also on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
