Philadelphia rockers The War on Drugs have premiered the music video for their song, "Nothing to Find."

The video for the track—which is taken from the band's newest album, A Deeper Understanding—was directed by Ben Fee, and features actress Sophia Lillis (if Lillis looks familiar, she played Beverly Marsh in the new adaptation of Stephen King's It) embarking on an epic journey with a strange creature covered in grass and leaves.

You can check out the wild video below.

“I kinda just write, and I use the instruments and the colors I like to use, whether it’s drum machines, guitars, whatever,” Granduciel told Guitar World aboutA Deeper Understanding back in August. “For certain material, the process of being alone, you end up with stuff you’re not gonna get with six people in the room. So I just chip away at the songs.”

“I wanted to make a record that feels like what it feels like to be in the room when we’re playing," he continued. "I wanted something a little bit more powerful, sonically, than other records we had made. And I think we got there.”

Jackson is an Associate Editor at He’s been writing and editing stories about new gear, technique and guitar-driven music both old and new since 2014, and has also written extensively on the same topics for Guitar Player. Elsewhere, his album reviews and essays have appeared in Louder and Unrecorded. Though open to music of all kinds, his greatest love has always been indie, and everything that falls under its massive umbrella. To that end, you can find him on Twitter crowing about whatever great new guitar band you need to drop everything to hear right now.
