    With upcoming appearances at Sasquatch!, Bonnaroo, Lollapalloza, and multiple international cities, The Drums are gearing up for a hectic touring schedule. Besides their usual equipment, the band will be bringing along a new guitarist and drummer to add some extra energy to the road.

    During an interview with NME, singer Jonathan Pierce revealed the band would be leaving their backing tracks at home in favor of an augmented live lineup. For the upcoming dates, former Violens member Myles Matheny will step in on guitar to replace Adam Kessler, who departed in September, and drummer Connor Hanwick will move over to keys, with Chris Stein taking over the drum kit.

    To see where the expanded five piece will be popping up next, check out the list of tour dates below.
