Philadelphia’s The War On Drugs kick off 2012 with a debut performance tonight, Tuesday January 10th on
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! Its an ideal and fitting way to begin the year for the ‘Drugs, especially following their strong finish to 2011, including a tour of sold out dates in December and recognition on an extensive number of year-end lists. Additionally, the band will head to the WNYC studios tomorrow, Tuesday, January 11th, for a performance and interview on “Soundcheck.” This is certain to be just the first of many great things to come for the band in 2012.

As previously announced, Secretly Canadian will release The War On Drugs’ “Come to the City” 7-inch single on January 24th, featuring Slave Ambient’s sprawling centerpiece and the previously unreleased “Don’t Fear The Ghost.” With its discerning arrangement and mesmerizing tone, “Don’t Fear The Ghost” fits perfectly in The War On Drugs’ singular catalogue.
