The War on Drugs Prep Slave Ambient Extended Cassette, Tour in October with Purling Hiss

 

Expanded cassette coming soon on Mirror Universe

 

Beneath the new American pop-rock of The War on Drugs’ excellent Slave Ambient are deep pools of texture; tape experimentation and deconstruction; the churning of the earth. These are cornerstones of Adam Granduciel’s creative process and The War on Drugs’ sound. But separated from the pop songs in which they lurk, these sounds are pretty amazing in their own right. We are excited to announce that Secretly Canadian is partnering with South Carolina’s Mirror Universe to release a limited-run extended edition of Slave Ambient. Side A features the entire record as we know it, while Side B is 40-minutes of Granduciel’s sound sculptures, tape manipulation and ambient experimentation.

Meanwhile, the band just announced a string of October dates with Philly brethren Purling Hiss and Carter Tanton. See all upcoming dates HERE.

And if you haven’t yet, pre-order for Slave Ambient is up at SCDistribution with all sorts of stellar bundle deals.
