THE WAR ON DRUGS (USA)
with Lost Animal and Hollow Everdaze
One of the main surprise packets from the 2012 installment of the Harvest Festival was without doubt the debut Australian appearances by Philadelphian rock outfit The War On Drugs. Their textured, expansive take on classic rock’n’roll blew away existing fans and newcomers alike during their high-octane festival slots, and demand for their more intimate sideshows was intense with their Melbourne appearance selling out completely. This time around Australian music lovers are prepared for their arrival, which is just as well because The War On Drugs have just unveiled details of two Melbourne and Sydney sideshows in conjunction with their already-announced appearances at the impending Falls and Southbound Festivals!
Excitingly, The War On Drugs have been bunkered down working on their eagerly-awaited third album, and there’s a good chance that some of this new material will be aired on their impending Australian visit.
