WATCH // The War on Drugs on “Austin City Limits” This Weekend

The War on Drugs - Scott Newton

The War On Drugs recently wrapped up eighteen-plus months of touring in support of their tremendous third album, Lost In The Dream. After selling out multiple tours all over North America, Europe and Australia, performing at major festivals across the globe, and playing a slew of late night and daytime television programs, the bands nonstop run culminated with a sold out show at New Yorks famed Radio City Music Hall and a triumphant performance at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

While its time for the Drugs to take some much-deserved time off, they still have one special performance to share with you. This weekend on Saturday, November 7th at 8pm CT/9pm ET, “Austin City Limits” will present The War On Drugs powerful debut episode. Check local listing for times, and immediately following the initial broadcast, watch the entire episode online for a limited time here. The set list for this performance includes “Under The Pressure,” “Lost In The Dream,” “Eyes To The Wind,” and “In Reverse.” For a sneak peek, check out web-exclusives of “Red Eyes” and “Arms Like Boulders.”
