The War on Drugs

The War On Drugs shot the new video for ‘Pain’ in their home town of Philadelphia.

16mm film captures the band cruising the Philly River, playing on a barge with their name on the side. Candid scenes of other Philly natives are shuffled into the shots, like kids riding bikes and everyday working class heroes.

The overall effect is some how nostalgic, hopeful, and would make anybody living away from where they grew up yearn for a homecoming.

We just had them here for an X-Session and you can watch their incredible, stripped down performance below.

The War On Drugs kick off their 2017 tour next month.
