The War on Drugs is not over.
Founded by celebrated rock songwriter Kurt Vile and moody indie mastermind Adam Granduciel, this post-punk outfit released its debut album, Wagonwheel Blues, in 2008. A short time later, though, Vile split to pursue a solo career.
But despite his departure, Granduciel just said no to quitting the band. He went forth, recruited new allies, and recorded another two albums, including 2014's Lost in a Dream, which copped lots of end-of-year accolades from Pitchfork and the like.
Now the War on Drugs is coming to the Fillmore Miami Beach. And you can join up for free.
