Encyclopedia is the third studio album of American indie pop band The Drums. It was released on September 23, 2014, by Minor Records. It was the first album of the band released by Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham as a duo. Prior to the release of the band's second album Portamento, it was announced that guitarist Adam Kessler had left The Drums and that many shouting matches had occurred between its members, which nearly caused a break-up.

Album · 2014 · 12 Songs. Like their sonic forebears The Smiths, The Drums have a signature move of mixing sweet and sour: their mostly morose lyrics ride over a bed of deceptively cheery indie pop. Following the success of 2011's lovely Portmanteau, the band toured heavily and lost one of their members in the process. Encyclopedia is the product of founding members Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham holing themselves up in a cabin in upstate New York, which might explain its shut-in quality.

Though Encyclopedia is the Drums' first album since their debut to feature just the core duo of Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham, it's not a return to the happy-go-lucky sound of their early days. Instead, on their first album in three years, Graham and Pierce take even more risks than they did on their second album, Portamento
