THE WAR ON DRUGS are out with their brand new album, Lost In The Dream, and fans around the world — yours truly included — couldn’t be happier.  In a fascinating interview with Consequence Of Sound, lead singer Adam Granduciel opens up about the internal turmoil that prefaced the making of the album, “but not in a self-effacing way,” writes Consequence Of Sound.  “Instead of trying to mask these feelings, he attempts to weave them into a conversation that many Americans attempt to understand on a daily basis. Granduciel does so often during ours.  ‘I’m not trying to make a point, but it was a big part of the album.  I’m not ashamed of it; it’s not a unique experience.  A quarter of the country experiences these kinds of feelings,’ he says, referring to the intense loneliness, isolation, and paranoia that informed the record.  Lost in the Dream isn’t autobiographical per se, but the songs all loop back to grappling through some moment of conflict.  Isolation is a barreling force on this record, an emotion instrumental to its narrative arc.  Poignant psychedelic undertones of Lost In The Dream emerge in spurts, channeling disorientation.”  You can read the entire interview by visiting ConsequenceOfSound.net, and pick up your own copy of Lost In The Dream on iTunes as well as their home label Secretly Canadian.
