In case you missed it, The War On Drugs have a new album coming out August 25.

Leading up to the record the band’s unearthed some earth-shatteringly beautiful tunes. An eleven-minute ballad “Thinking Of A Place,” an absolutely dreamy Tom Petty-esque track titled “Holding On,” and the psychedelia Paradiso jam “Strangest Thing.”

Now the band brings forth a new track, titled “Pain,” ensuring the upcoming record will be among this year’s best releases. Dripping in swirling smooth reverb The War On Drugs has found yet another sonic sweet spot in the cinematic intersection of New Wave and heartland rock and roll they have pioneered.
