The War On Drugs are heading South to Atlanta for a show at The Earl on Thursday, October 13th in support of this new album, with openers Purling Hiss and Carter Tanton.

Their bio impressively manages to omit any “rootsy” description sans the mention of their Springsteen, Petty and Dylan influences. To their credit, TWOD does bring rootsy well to an indie crowd by interlacing synths and organs, layering the instrumentals on thickly, unlike their influences’ stripped down no-fuss guitar-driven anthems.
