In Video // The War On Drugs unveil new video, tour UK this week

February 21st, 2012 by TJ

Philadelphia’s finest The War On Drugs have unvelied a new video for Brothers, a track taken from last years stunning Slave Ambient LP, which was one of our favourite albums of 2011. The ‘dark and disturbing’ video was made by Brewer, a pair of Brothers (Ben and Alex) who said they pictured the song as a “soundtrack to a dark western like Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid or Unforgiven. That is where the deranged TV cowboy character came from. We wanted the video to feel like the most exciting five minutes taken out of a longer movie.”

Check the video out below and be sure to catch The War On Drugs when they hit visit the UK later this week. Full dates are below and support comes from the brilliant Weird Dreams;
