Grammy Award winners The War On Drugs will be performing at The Van Buren on April 18, 2018. The band is touring in support of its most recent album, A Deeper Understanding. Tickets are available on The Van Buren’s website.
The War On Drugs recently won their first Grammy Award for Best Rock Album A Deeper Understanding. The album, the band’s fourth studio album, was released in August 2017 on Atlantic Records. Rolling Stone Magazine called the album one of the best rock LPs of the year. Pitchfork was similarly effusive about the album. With those type of accolades from those sources, the Grammy Award wasn’t necessarily out of the blue but still a huge achievement for the band. A Deeper Understanding also features the band’s first #1 single, Pain.
The War On Drugs is in the midst of a lengthy tour that includes Europe and North America. The tour started February 2nd in Adelaide Sa, AU and continues through August. They will also be performing at a number of high-profile festivals including Coachella, Primavera Sound, Mountain Jam Festival, Panorama, Forecastle, Shaky Knees and XPoNential Music Festival.
