THE WAR ON DRUGS with special guest ALVVAYS Presented by Sonic Concerts in Association with the Halifax Jazz Festival at Waterfront Stage (Halifax) - Wed Jul 11 2018 at 8:30 pm
Three and a half years distant from the release of The War on Drugs’s universally acclaimed 2014 record Lost in the Dream comes A Deeper Understanding, a testament to the ambitious art of album making and modern rock and roll.
For the better part of that period, the band’s frontman and driving force, Adam Granduciel, led the charge for his Philadelphia-based sextet, persevering through both triumph and struggle as he holed up in studios on both American coasts to write, record, edit, and tinker—but, above all, to busy himself in work.
Teaming up with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), Granduciel challenged the notion of what it means to create a fully realized piece of music in today’s modern landscape.
Antisocialites – the much-anticipated follow-up to Alvvays’ 2014 self-titled debut – was released on September 8, 2017. Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates. Through thoughtful consideration in basement and abroad, Alvvays has renewed its Scot-pop vows with a powerful new collection of manic emotional collage.
