The Drums have returned with “I Want It All,” the new single is out today via ANTI-. The track confronts childhood trauma and discoveries of self-acceptance within the song, which for Jonny Pierce – the founding artist behind The Drums – serves as a piece of art that’s as exposed as it is triumphant. With a sense of freshly-absorbed introspection, “I Want It All” marks the debut offering from The Drums’ forthcoming album and first studio project since 2019’s Brutalism.

“The song emerged from the longing and the pain that stemmed from a loveless childhood,” says Pierce about “I Want It All.” “It is only in the past few years that I have really begun to understand what happened to me as a boy, which has helped me start to build my own bridge towards real love. The song is a declaration – that I will take what I was never given. I want the full experience of being human, which includes love and connection. I want it all.”

Along with the premiere of “I Want It All” today, The Drums have also announced a full-length North American tour, set to kick off July 12th in San Diego, CA. Tickets will be available via an artist pre-sale starting Tuesday, April 4th at 10am local time. Spotify and local pre-sales begin Wednesday, April 5th and 6th, with the general on-sale beginning Friday, April 7th at 10am local time.

The Drums’ “Money,” which first appeared on their album Portamento. Transforming into a viral sensation earlier this year – over a decade since it was first released – the song has since bloomed with a second life, via TikTok.
