Following a run of stunning comeback singles including 'Obvious', 'I Want It All' and 'Plastic Envelope / Protect Him Always' in recent months, The Drums have now announced their plans for their new studio album 'Jonny', which is set to be released on the 13th October via ANTI-Records.

The new full-length will mark their sixth LP to date, and is being previewed by the new lead track 'Better'.

Speaking about the new record, frontman Jonny Pierce said, “When I finished ‘Jonny’, I listened to it, and I heard my soul reflected back at me. It is devastating and triumphant, it is lost and found, it is confused and certain, it is wise and foolish. It is male and female, it is hard and gentle. To encapsulate ones' whole self in an album, to honor each and every part of you - even the parts that feel at odds with each other, is to make something deeply human, and because my religion is humanism, the album becomes a sacred place for me to worship. Each feeling a different pew, each song a hymn to the human heart.”
