New York-based indie pop/alt band The Drums (led by Jonny Pierce) have returned with their brand new single “I Want It All“.
The song is out now through Anti Records, and marks the debut offering from their forthcoming album and the first studio project since 2019’s Brutalism.
Soul-searching ruminations, confrontations of childhood trauma and epiphanies of self-acceptance are entangled within the song, which for Pierce, serves as a piece of art that’s as exposed as it is triumphant.
“I Want It All emerged from the longing and the pain that stemmed from a loveless childhood. 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.”

Soaring to alt-pop prestige nearly fifteen years ago with a renowned self-titled debut, The Drums continue to thrive, influence and reinvent with every project. Pierce initially conceived of the band back in 2008 and what resulted was worldwide acclaim and a string of five studio albums that deftly walk the line of aching melancholy and irresistible pop sensibilities, presented through a kaleidoscope of pastel guitars, reverb, modular synthesizers and drum machines. It’s a sound that’s wholly unique, and unmistakably The Drums.
The Drums have also announced a full-length North American tour, set to kick off July 12th in San Diego, CA. For more information, visit HERE.
