Slow, tribalistic, swirling heavy psyche is what War Drum pounds into your head. With their faces covered in war-paint, these four dudes from Palm Springs, Ca. take you on a mind-inducing trip through the scorching hot desert sands. The driving bass lines and trippy organ intensify the experience as the guitar groans with some serious low desert groove. Experience War Drum today!
