The War On Drugs set to release new single ‘Holding On’

The War On Drugs are set to release their new single ‘Holding On’ as the Philadelphia-born band ramp up excitement around their forthcoming new album.

Having already unearthed ‘Thinking Of A Place’ to celebrate Record Store Day a few weeks back, the first new music since their acclaimed 2014 album Lost In A Dream, The War On Drugs have kept their cards close to their chest in regards to the new record despite already announcing a new tour.

That said, promotional site All Access claim that ‘Holding On’ is scheduled for radio play on 6/20, which means we’ll be given a sample of their ‘LA record’ between now and then.

“I kept thinking about an LA record and what that means,” frontman Adam Granduciel told said in an interview with Pitchfork. “To me, it means the second Warren Zevon record, but it could also mean Tonight’s The Night. Then I threw my hands in the air and just wanted to make a record with my friends, wherever that may be.”

The band have also registered nine other songs, here they are:

‘Clean Living’
‘Gone Too Long’
‘In Chains’
‘New Trick’
‘Nothing To Find’
‘Pain’
‘Strangest Thing’
‘Up All Night’
‘You Don’t Have To Go’
