The War on Drugs rocks ‘Red Eyes’ on Ellen this week

Philadelphia indie rock band The War on Drugs was on The Ellen Show yesterday, where they played ‘Red Eyes‘. The song is from their latest album Lost in the Dream, which they released late last year.

For me, it was interesting to see The War on Drugs on Ellen, as you don’t expect to see a band this edgy on Ellen with its audience of mainly middle-aged women and stay-at-home moms. But, when you think about it, most of these women grew up listening to and loving rock music, so the band is an extremely logical choice.

Plus, they not only rocked their ‘Red Eyes’ performance, they also seemed to be a big hit with the audience.

The band has been particularly busy this month too, with appearances at Coachella, SXSW and various network TV shows. Then The War on Drugs was on Ellen, and I for one could not be happier.

Watch them below.
