American indie rock band The War on Drugs have an archive of live recordings which they would like to release.
The material covers all stages of the band's life, from when Kurt Vile was in the group at the beginning to releasing their last album Slave Ambient with the current line-up.
"I've been trying to put out a live record for a long time, but the cruel hand of fate has prevented it from coming out," explained bassist David Hartley. "There is a live record that exists, with stuff that people heard, from back in the day with Kurt [Vile], and when we were a three piece with Mike [Zanghi], shows all over Europe and America."
"There's so much stuff that we could put out without ever hitting record," he said.
After a stint in Europe they are currently touring Slave Ambient in the US and have just announced a new UK date at London's Electric Ballroom on February 28.
