Two days ago the War On Drugs announced details about their new album, Lost In The Dream. With it came word of a tour, and a hometown album release show here in Philly on at Union Transfer on Tuesday, March 18th, the day of the new album’s release. “Red Eyes” was named “Best New Track” by Pitchfork, writer Jeremy Larson sums it up succinctly:

Fighting against something between heartbreak and keeping the car running, Granduciel sings, “I would keep you here, but I can’t,” with that same kind of heroic melancholy that Petty and Dylan mastered back in the day.
