The War On Drugs – “Red Eyes”

The War On Drugs – “Red Eyes”

We’ve heard barely a peep from Philly’s ambient heartland rockers the War On Drugs this year — our only post about them in 2013 prior to this one regards their involvement in the Dessner brothers’ Grateful Dead tribute — but it seems like 2014 will be far busier for them. Frontman Adam Granduciel has been hinting at a new album called Lost In The Dream since summertime, and now we’ve got confirmation that the record is coming in March along with a lead single to remind us how awesome this band is. The song’s called “Red Eyes,” and it picks up right where 2011’s Slave Ambient left off, riding the night train to some ethereal destination with blurry vision and Springsteen on the brain. It’s an immensely pleasant way to begin your Wednesday, and you can do that below.
