The war on drugs

American indie-rock band The War on Drugs return to the O2 Academy in Newcastle, this Friday (February 27), as part of their UK tour.

The band – consisting of lead singer Adam Granduciel, David Hartley, Robbie Bennett, Charlie Hall, Jon Natchez and Anthony LaMarca had their first experience at Newcastle’s O2 academy last weekend as they featured in BBC’s 6 Music Festival 2015.

The War on Drugs have had their most successful year to date, since forming in 2003, and their most recent album Lost in the Dream was voted BBC Radio 6 Music Album of the Year.

Lost in the Dream was recorded and released after a busy tour and at a time when lead singer Granduciel suffered from depression and loneliness.

Music fans have compared the band to the likes of Dire Straits and Bruce Springsteen.

Tickets are still available for the event and are priced at £22.50. Doors open at 6:30pm.
