With anticipation building for the release of their third album Encyclopedia (due Monday September 22), The Drums unveil new single ‘I Can’t Pretend'. You can check it out now via Soundcloud.
Encyclopedia is the The Drums first album as the duo of Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham. Speaking about the new album, Johnny Pierce said “Encyclopedia is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout,” says Pierce. “We were feeling very angry, confused, and alone when we made this album; and we wanted to be very honest this time around, even if being honest meant making some people uncomfortable. We’ve left the beach for higher ground, always searching for hope.”
The band will be performing live throughout November, arriving in the UK for their first gig at the Scala in London on Tuesday November 18.
