The War on Drugs have announced their fourth studio album, A Deeper Understanding. The album will be their first since signing with Atlantic Records back in June of 2015, and will be released on August 25th.
Along with the the announcement, the band released the record's first single, "Holding On". It's another piece of beautiful Springsteen-esque pop that is certain to fill the Jersey shore air throughout the summer.
According to a press release, A Deeper Understanding is "a 'band record' in the noblest sense, featuring collaboration, coordination, and confidence at every turn." It was engineered by Shawn Everett who has previously worked with the Alabama Shakes and Weezer.
A Deeper Understanding is the follow-up to 2014's Lost in a Dream, which topped a variety of critics year end lists. Overall, it turned out to be the most critically acclaimed album of that year. Nonetheless, it only reached number 26 on the US Billboard 200. Hopefully, with their new Atlantic Records deal, the new album will head up the charts and continue to get the critical admiration it will surely deserve.
The War on Drugs is also heading out on tour in September. The band will be playing a number of shows across North America and Europe. The concert series will begin September 18th in Portland, Maine.

1. Up All Night
