The War on Drugs are a very good band, but apparently they suck at screening talent show contestants. In the new video for "Red Eyes," the first single off the reverb-loving Philly group's third album Lost in the Dream, the four members serve as judges at a competition, watching with dismay as an old couple dances, a hula hooper hula hoops, a magician performs weak tricks, and a sad drunk clown gets drunker. It's a bleak affair and we won't spoil the twist, but a little rock 'n' roll is added to the picture and things get more fun. Lost in the Dream, the follow-up to 2011's Slave Ambientis due out March 18 via Secretly Canadian.
