WarOnDrugssamanthawest560 The War on Drugs on Tour, Playing SXSW Today

Modern Americana rock outfit The War on Drugs kicked off their North American tour last week, and are playing their first SXSW show at Pitchfork’s day party today (Image by Samantha West). After making the southern music mecca rounds in Ausin, they’ll be heading west as co-headliners with Sharon Van Etten. Their following headlining leg of the tour will begin in Brooklyn with an already sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 6th, but tickets are still available for their Bowery Ballroom gig on April 8th. That’ll be their last date in the northeast, as they’ll be playing Sasquatch and Bonnaroo in the summer before getting into their European tour. Full dates below.

They’ve also dropped this recent video for the song “Brothers.”
