On Our Radar: Rodney DeCroo's ferocious "War Torn Man" returns

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Rodney DeCroo’s fruitful collaboration with producer Lorrie Matheson gave us last year’s hook loaded Old Tenement Man album.

      Now the duo have turned their attention to the singer-songwriter’s past with this radically reworked version of 2006's "War Torn Man".

      The new sheen is seductive, while the song—written for a father who returned from Vietnam and brought the war with him—remains one of DeCroo’s most raw and direct statements.

      Accompanying the release, the Straight is proud to premiere this Blake Williams-directed video for “War Torn Man”.

      Like the song, it speaks eloquently, and forcefully, for itself.
