Watch: The War On Drugs share the video for ‘Holding On’

It stars Adam Granduciel and Frankie Faison from ‘The Wire’.

The War On Drugs are back and are set to release their fourth full-length album ‘A Deeper Understanding’ on 25th August.

They’d already shared its lead single, ‘Holding On’, and now it’s got a new video, which stars Frankie Faison (best known from ‘The Wire’) alongside Adam Granduciel, and directed by Brett Haley. Adding to that star line-up is Krysten Ritter (aka Jessica Jones), who provided the concept.

It’s a heart-warming clip where Frankie plays a man who returns to his town after a long absence. There, he’s greeted warmly by his neighbours, who are glad to see him out and about.

In November, The War On Drugs are set to go on a tour of the UK as part of a wider run, and two shows in Glasgow and Manchester have already sold out. Tickets are on sale for their other dates though!
