The War on Drugs beamed into the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “Arms Like Boulders,” the opening track to their 2008 debut Wagonwheel Blues. The remote performance sees the band in an atypical configuration, with each member playing guitar or mandolin. Check out their latest late-night TV appearance below.
In November 2020, the War on Drugs released a live album called LIVE DRUGS, featuring a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Accidentally Like a Martyr.” They also launched a four-part audio series called Super High Quality Podcast. Their last studio album was 2017’s A Deeper Understanding.
