The War on Drugs is out on the road showcasing selections from, A Deeper Understanding, their latest studio long-player, which was released back on Aug. 25 via Atlantic Records. It was recorded with engineer Shawn Everett, who has previously worked with the likes of Weezer and Alabama Shakes. The album, which has since given birth to five singles (“Thinking of a Place,” “Holding On,” “Strangest Thing,” “Pain,” and “Up All Night,”), debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
A Deeper Understanding is The War on Drugs fourth album, following Wagonwheel Blues (2008), Slave Ambient (2011), and Lost in the Dream (2014).
Also on the bill is singer-songwriter and guitarist Craig Finn, who indie rock fans may recognize as The Hold Steady’s frontman. Finn is touring in continued support of his third solo release, We All Want the Same Things. The album, released back in March through Partisan Records, hit No. 11 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart. It includes stand out tracks “God in Chicago,” “Tangletown,” and “Jester & June.”
