NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 27, 2023) - Country music duo War Hippies released a new version of their haunting ballad “No Friend of Mine (Fiddle Cut)” along with an official music video today. In the song, the pair draws in listeners with raw emotion and gritty storytelling. The lyrics, sung with haunting sincerity, tell the tale of a man betrayed by his constant companion, whiskey.

The captivating music video for the track was filmed on a breathtaking mountaintop in Colorado. The song serves as a poignant exploration of addiction and remorse, marked by a haunting melody and profoundly introspective lyrics. It stands as a testament to the band’s remarkable talent in conveying deep emotions through their music, ultimately serving as a powerful reminder of the destructive grip of addiction and the unwavering fight for liberation.

Whiskey you’re no friend of mine
I trusted you and you robbed me blind
Of everything I had and you took your time
Whiskey you’re no friend of mine

You left me face down in the freezing rain
All I wanted to do was drink away my pain
I’ve got nothin’ left but my own shame
Whiskey you’re the one to blame

“No Friend of Mine” was originally released on October 14, 2022, on the duo’s debut album, War Hippies. The album made quite the impact, debuting at No. 8 on the iTunes Country Chart and reaching No. 30 across all genres in its first week. To date, it has amassed over 2 million streams.
