War on Drugs has shared a teaser for the new musical on their social media pages – scroll down to see it now.
The US band last released a new studio album with 2017’s A Deeper Understanding, but have spent the past year providing updates on its follow-up.
Now it looks like his comeback is going to happen soon. A short video teaser was shared by the group today (July 18) and contains an excerpt from piano-led music. In accompanying scenes, frontman Adam Granduciel is seen driving a truck, pulling it off a field, and then walking across the field and starting to play his guitar.
Just watch it below.
Earlier this month, the band reportedly filmed a new music video in a barn somewhere in America. “Funny film shoot in our barn today for the upcoming album release by Adam Granduciel and his band, The War on Drugs,” the barn owner wrote in a Facebook post that was later shared on Reddit.
Last November, Granduciel shared an update on the band’s next record. “In March I would have told you it was 80 percent done, and now looking back it was actually 40 percent,” he said. “Some songs have been re-imagined, which has been a blessing. Some songs have removed another layer of soil.”
It is currently unclear whether ‘Ocean of Darkness’, which premiered during a remote appearance by the band The Tonight Show, will be displayed on a new record. Granduciel has also shared previews of three songs on an Instagram live stream in March 2020. The tracks were titled ‘Victim’, ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait’ and ‘Harmonic Dream’.
