Brooklyn indie rock/pop outfit The Drums have announced the release of their new album 'Abysmal Thoughts'.
The follow-up to 2014’s Encyclopedia will be out on June 16 via Anti-Records, and was recorded by frontman and founder Jonny Pierce, who also wrote all the songs and played all the instruments. Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Mannequin Pussy) served as engineer. Pre-order your copy here.
"Happiness can be confusing to me," says Pierce. “It shows up out of nowhere, and before you can even get used to it, it’s vanished. But Abysmal Thoughts? I can rely on them—and with the political chaos that is raining down, who knows when these dark feelings will subside?” .
The band have also shared the album's first single "Blood Under My Belt."
