The band, who will release their second studio album Portamento on September 5, insisted that Obama victory track 'Let's Go Surfing' is the last political song they will record for a while.
Frontman Jonathan Pierce told Q magazine: "A lot has happened since then, and a lot I'm not aware of, it's difficult when you're touring.
"We've thrown in the towel of keeping up of what was wrong in the world. That Obama moment, when he came into office it was a huge thing for the whole world. I'm not very political, but couldn't help be affected."
Pierce added: "I don't think you'll be hearing any political statements in the future. It's really boring to me. I hate U2 and Coldplay, bands that can't be bands for the life of them. They can't just write great songs, they have to be doing other stuff, a statement all the time.
"I don't mind certain statement, but U2 haven't released a good record in ten years, why don't they just run for office? Just write me a great love song, that's all I want!"
The Drums recently announced plans to embark on a UK tour later this year.
