The War On Drugs share video for 'Pain'


The new The War On Drugs album is on it’s way. We promise. But while we all wait with baited breath for A Deeper Understanding the mercurial band has shared the new black and white video for ‘Pain’.

Shot in their native Philadelphia as the band motor down the Schuykill River on an abandoned cargo ship, the moodiness of the promo is never in doubt. They even shot it on 16mm film the arty little buggers.

With a new video, a new album on the way and a new tour in November there is a lot of newness going on for the Philly troubadours, but one thing is for sure; it’s the same old brilliance we’ve come to expect.

Take a look at ‘Pain’ below.
