Last night at Union Transfer, Philly’s War On Drugs celebrated yesterday’s release of their new album, Lost In The Dream. A sold out hometown crowd welcomed the band with open arms and high spirits to see the band to play for an hour and 45 minutes. Lost In The Dream is War On Drug’s best album yet and live, new material like “Under The Pressure,” “Red Eyes,” and “An Ocean In Between The Waves,” were transcendent. Fueled by Adam Granduciel’s exceptional guitar playing, drummer Charlie Hall’s driving Mick Fleetwood-esque drumming, bassist Dave Hartley’s rock steady bottom, and Robbie Bennett’s colorful keyboard playing, the band were augmented with additional players on guitar and saxophone. Below, via Phila Taper stream the band’s entire show.
