The Drums have just finished playing the NME Awards Tour, playing alongside The Maccabees, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Big Pink. Last nightâ€™s NME Awards ceremony saw the band pick up the prestigious â€˜Phillip Hall Radar Awardâ€™.
The first single from the bandâ€™s as yet untitled debut album, will be brand new track â€˜Best Friendâ€™. Released on March 29th through Moshi Moshi/Island Records, â€˜Best Friendâ€™ has fast become a live favourite with its soaring chorus and guitarist Jacob Grahamâ€™s impassioned tambourine playing.
