THE_DRUMS5Launched at a packed out roof top show in NYC, The Drums – founder members Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham – return with their third studio album ‘Encyclopedia’, released in the UK on September 22nd. ‘Magic Mountain’ is the exciting first tune, taken from the album.

Jonny explains: “Encyclopedia is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout. 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.”
