The War on Drugs is an American indie rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, formed in 2005. The band consists of Adam Granduciel (lyrics, vocals, guitar), David Hartley (bass), Robbie Bennett (keyboards), Charlie Hall (drums), Jon Natchez (saxophone, keyboards), and Anthony LaMarca (guitar).
The War On Drugs achieved their long-awaited and well-deserved breakthrough with their third album Lost In The Dream from spring of 2014. Musically the spectrum of the band ranges from stoner rock to americana, and critics and fans hear influences from Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young.
Released on Atlantic Records in August 2017, the new album A Deeper Understanding not only climbed to # 12 on the German album charts, but, like its predecessor, is ranked highly by audiences and music editors.
