The Drums Release Their Album 'Portamento' And Single 'Money' September The 5th 2011

With just 6 days until the release of their return album 'Portamento' and single 'Money' (September 5th) through Moshi Moshi/Island, The Drums have unveiled the second episode of their new web TV channel, VISIOMENTO.

Next week see's the band take to the stages of assorted tiny London venues for a 3 night album release party - their first own London shows with their new line-up, which has swollen to a quintet live, augmented by two auxiliary members. Also gone are the backing tracks used for the bulk of their live shows to date, thus lending their performances a more visceral, spontaneous feel, in line with the aesthetic of the new album.

'Portamento' - released just over a year since their debut - reveals a band tugging lightly at the boundaries of their sound while still retaining their recognizable sonic signatures. Sweet rushes of melody and brittle synthesizer sheens colliding with wiry Spector-esque guitar lines are still very much present, but singer, Jonny Pierce's lyrics have assumed a deeper, personal tone and coupled with the band's own more expansive production, 'Portamento' is a more complex, but ultimately more rewarding listen than their debut.

The Drums are:

Jonny Pierce - vocals, guitars

Jacob Graham - synths

Connor Hanwick - guitar
