VIDEO: The War on Drugs Play “Baby Missiles” on Jimmy Fallon

The War on Drugs stopped into Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to throw down a concise but ripping version of “Baby Missiles.” As has become standard, Questlove joined the band on drums. Check it out:

The band also just released a new track on Souncloud, called “Don’t Fear the Ghost.” The new tune features a familiar drum track amidst droning guitar loops and washed-out vocals, and nicely showcases the band’s more psychedelic side:

Man, I love this band. Given my numerous posts on this band, I think you guys already know that, but it’s just great to see them picking up the momentum and getting some national recognition. Hopefully, we’ll see them making some high-profile festival slots this summer, along with a decent-sized tour.
