Music Video: The War On Drugs – “Red Eyes”

the war on drugs 2013

The War on Drugs will be releasing their new album, Lost in the Dream, March 18 via Secretly Canadian. We’ve already heard the title track; now we have a Woodshop Films-produced video for it.

In the video, the band oversees a lackluster talent competition. The magician can’t do a simple card trick, the clown’s a drunk, and the hula hooper is… well, she’s trying. I must say, though, that elderly couple can swing. They’re at least as good on their feet as the kid is on the frets. It’s the kid who wins, though, shredding his way into a spot fronting The War on Drugs.

The band will also be leaving for tour in a week and a half, hardly stopping until June. Check out the dates after the jump and the video.
