The Drums Confirm New Album ?Portamento?

July 13, 2011 by  

Back in 2010 The Drums were the most hyped band around and when their debut album dropped it was met with mixed reviews, but undeterred they are back just a year later.

The band has announced today they will release their second album, ?Portamento? on September 12th through Moshi Moshi / Island Records.

Last night the first single ?Money? was aired on radio 1 and despite that weird video they released a couple of weeks back it?s, well, the sort of thing you?d expect from The Drums.
