Award Winners The Drums New Single And UK & Ireland Dates

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