VIDEO: “Holding On” by The War On Drugs

The War On Drugs are set to release their fourth full-length album, A Deeper Understanding, on August 25th via Atlantic Records. Following last week’s performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the band now presents the video for lead single, “Holding On.” The song, which debuted as the #1 most added at AAA radio last week, was named Best New Track by Pitchfork, who said “There’s a newfound sense of clarity here, from the magnificent production to the ornate instrumentation.”

The “Holding On” video stars Frankie Faison (of The Wire) and band leader Adam Granduciel and was directed by filmmaker Brett Haley with concept by Krysten Ritter. Haley is known for directing feature films I’ll See You In My Dreams and The Hero, in theaters now and starring Sam Elliott, Nick Offerman, Laura Prepon and Ritter.
