The War On Drugs Debut “Red Eyes” Video

The War On Drugs debut "Red Eyes" Video. Their New LP Lost In The Dream, comes Out 5/18 via Secretly Canadian. The War On Drugs play 3/15 in Kingston, NY.


Lost In The Dream is the third album by Philadelphia band The War on Drugs. Around the release of the 2011 album Slave AmbientAdam Granduciel spent the bulk of two years on the road, touring through progressively larger rock clubs and festival stages. As these dozen songs shifted and grew beyond what they’d been in the studio, The War on Drugs really grew as a band.

In the past, Granduciel built the core of songs largely by himself, however, these new tunes were played and recorded by the group that had solidified so much on the road as they spent eight months bouncing between a half-dozen different studios stretching from NC to NYC. Only then did Granduciel-the proudly self-professed gearhead, and unrepentant perfectionist-add and subtract, invite guests and retrofit pieces, sculpting these songs into a musical rescue mission, through and then beyond personal despair and anxiety. Lost In The Dream represents the trials of the trip and the triumphs of its destination. As such, these tunes reveal a careful and thrilling reinvention of the sound that’s become The War on Drugs’ trademark. The signature meld of long tones and scattershot layers with phantom drum machines and organ lines dotting the musical middle distance still stands, but there’s a newfound directness, too. Granduciel’s voice steps out from behind its typical web of effects-louder now, with more experiences to share and more steel from having survived them. He sounds less like a prismatic reflection of a rock bandleader, more like the emboldened actualization of that idea.

The War On Drugs’ Lost In The Dream is out March 18th on Secretly Canadian. After sharing the album’s initial single, Red Eyes”, the band is now revealing the singles official video, produced by Woodshop Films.
