The War On Drugs are set to release their fourth full-length album, A Deeper Understanding, on August 25th via Atlantic Records. Following their performance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the band now presents the video for lead single, "Holding On."

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



A Deeper Understanding is The War On Drugs' first album since 2014's universally acclaimed Lost In The Dream, and their debut album with Atlantic. Produced by Granduciel and recorded in New York and Los Angeles with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), A Deeper Understanding is a "band record" in the noblest sense featuring bassist Dave Hartley, keyboardist Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez.

The War On Drugs will hit the road for two-plus months beginning mid-September.
