After receiving the first taste of the upcoming record Brill Bruisers in the form of the title track, we are treated to “War on the East Coast” today. “Brill Bruisers” is an upbeat, poppy number, but “War on the East Coast” is much different with slow soft verses bursting into big bellowing choruses.

The song already comes with a spiffy new video too. Watch A.C. Newman and Co. walk the streets in “War on the East Coast” below:
