The War On Drugs are excited to share the brand new video for “Brothers,” one of the many highlights off their stellar Slave Ambient. Following the more kaleidoscopic videos for “Baby Missiles” and “Come to the City,” the “Brothers” video, which premiered this morning via New York Magazine’s Vulture, definitely takes a different approach with its bleak western narrative. More on the “Brothers” video from the director team of Brewer, a pair of brothers (Ben and Alex), actually, is below.

Thank you for checking out Gig Archives. I hope you found the content to your liking. Gig Archives is the final band orientated website I will operate. It is no longer the labor of love  it once was in 2009- 2015.  Within the site years of special moments are documented in  photos and interviews. Gig Archives will continue have new posts as I am the House Photographer: U.S. Cellular Center, The Paramount Theater, McGrath Amphitheater, and the Ice Arena in Cedar Rapids through Venue Works. When approved I will post photos from my house gigs. I also shoot gigs for Riverside Casino in Riverside, Iowa. I am a drummer and have devoted all my free time to lessons and operating Drummer Photographer. Drummer Photographer is a site dedicated to drummers. Peace
