Fishtown rise up. Today, Philly’s The War on Drugs went into their hometown’s own WPXN for a live Free at Noon session, ploughing through some cuts from Slave Ambient, the inspired sophomore record due next week. Adam Granduciel rides his guitar like a wild, bucking mare, his amp threatening explode/implode at points through the set. The band is in lock step — albeit in that shambling, charming way that makes The War on Drugs the band we love oh-so dearly. You can listen to the entire affair HERE.

Next week, the day before the US release of Slave Ambient, the band has a in-store at NYC’s venerable Other Music. It starts at 8 p.m. It’s completely free. And the store will be slinging the new record for a crazy low price. New Yorkers, mount up. Check it HERE.

If you’re not headed to Other Music, have you PRE-ORDERED YOUR COPY YET?
