     video by Richard Hayden


     The War on Drugs was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania when Kurt Vile met Adam Granduciel, those two were the core of The War on Drugs.  Kurt was in The War on Drugs for a short time, he moved to a successful solo career and many other projects.

     Kurt Vile . . . “Adam was the first dude I met when I moved back to Philadelphia in 2003. We saw eye-to-eye on a lot of things. I was obsessed with Bob Dylan at the time, and we totally geeked-out on that. “

     Adam Granduciel . . . “My friend Julian and I came up with it a few years ago over a couple bottles of red wine and a few typewriters when we were living in Oakland. We were writing a lot back then, working on a dictionary, and it just came out and we were like “hey, good band name” so eventually when I moved to Philadelphia and got a band together I used it. “
