The War on Drugs brings tour to Singapore

Renowned American rock band, The War on Drugs, has announced plans to include Singapore as one of the stops on its upcoming tour.

Hailed by The Guardian for its “musically virtuosic, bold, and ultimately quite beautiful live shows”, The War on Drugs will perform their only Asian headline concert of 2023, and first ever in Singapore, at The Theatre at Mediacorp on December 13.
The War On Drugs has steadily emerged as one of this century’s greatest rock and roll synthesists, bridging the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present.
Led by Adam Granduciel, The New Yorker called them “the best American ‘rock’ band of this decade” in support of their album, “A Deeper Understanding”, for which they won the 2018 Grammy for Best Rock Album and were nominated for a BRIT Award for International Group of the Year. 2020 saw the release of “LIVE DRUGS” featuring live interpretations of songs throughout their career, including off their 2014 breakthrough, “Lost In The Dream”.
Co-produced by Granduciel and Shawn Everett, their fifth studio album “I Don’t Live Here Anymore”, “chips away some of their hazier edges in favor of sharper melodies, broadening the borders of the meticulous yet joyously simple sound [Granduciel] has perfected” (Pitchfork, Best New Music). It landed on numerous 2021 best albums of the year lists and garnered a second GRAMMY Award nomination (Best Rock Song) and BRIT Award nomination. The band headlined Madison Square Garden in support of its release.
