The War on Drugs released a video
for the title track off their first record in four years I Don’t Live Here Anymore.
In great dad-rock fashion, the band kicks it back on a tour bus traveling through a desert. The War on Drugs pays homage to the rock ‘n’ roll era, feeding llamas like the Pet Sounds cover and performing on a rooftop like the Beatles. Especially in these trying times, the group reminiscences on the good old days and the good old music that came with it.

In it, Adam Granduciel sings “I was lying in my bed, a creature void of form / Been so afraid of everything, I need a chance to be reborn.” The video was directed by Emmett Malloy and filmed throughout Los Angeles.
This is the first studio album from the band since winning 2018’s Best Rock Album Grammys with A Deeper Understanding. I Don’t Live Here Anymore was recorded over the span of three years and in seven studios.
The rock band will embark on a headlining tour in January 2022, visiting some of the largest venues they’ve ever played. Fans can purchase tickets on the band’s website.
