WATCH THIS: Philly Band The War On Drugs Rocks Conan
Local band The War on Drugs was on last night’s episode of Conan. The indie-rock band, with members Adam Granduciel, David Hartley, Robbie Bennett and Charlie Hall, performed their song “Burning.” Co-founded by Philly’s Kurt Vile before departing for a solo career, The War on Drugs released their third studio album, Lost in the Dream, in March. Flavorwire has since called it one of the best albums of the year.
The band recently appeared in a photo diary for The New York Times T Magazine featuring Granduciel’s own snapshots. It turns out that, in addition to dating actress Krysten Ritter, the frontman is quite the photographer.
