Watch the War on Drugs Play ‘Arms Like Boulders’ on ‘Austin City Limits’
The War on Drugs co-headline the upcoming Austin City Limits episode with TV on the Radio, marking both band’s very first appearances on the show. Their performances are set to air this Saturday (Nov. 7) on PBS.
“Arms Like Boulders” is a track from the War on Drugs’ critically acclaimed third full-length, Lost in the Dream, which arrived last year. The LP landed the Philly indie-rockers a major label deal with Atlantic for their next two albums. Lost in the Dream and its predecessors -- 2008’s Wagonwheel Blues and 2011’s Slave Ambient -- were released on Secretly Canadian.
After this weekend’s installment of Austin City Limits, the show has two more episodes planned for its fall schedule. James Taylor’s performance will air on Nov. 14, while ACL will broadcast the 2015 Americana Music Festival on Nov. 21. Gary Clark Jr. and Courtney Barnett just co-headlined last weekend’s episode, which you can watch right here.
