Easycore trio Meet Me @ The Altar has announced plans for their major-label debut EP with a new video for their new single and frenzied anthem “Feel A Thing.” Fueled by a barrage of pummeled drums via Edith Johnson, guitarist Téa Campbell’s electrifying hammer-ons, and Ada Juarez’s galvanizing cries, the song is a powerful indicator that the Florida-born rockers debut EP Model Citizen will be a wild ride. But underneath the song’s virulent and dizzying energies Meet Me @ The Altar hones in on the kind of numbing reaction we can have when overwhelmed, embracing a voracious honesty punctuated by their neon pop-punk rip-roaring.

The music video for the song, which sees the group fighting their way out of an arcade game to their own soundtrack, pays homage to their love for one video game in particular: Mortal Kombat. The retro animation is stunning and the shots of the band ripping through the track with such jubilant ferocity in the middle of the blinking lights of an arcade is too perfect to not enjoy.

“We are SO incredibly excited about Model Citizen being our first major release on Fueled By Ramen – these are absolutely our best songs to date,” the band said. “Model Citizen was originally a different set of songs, but we decided to throw it all out just days before the EP was due because we knew we could write a more cohesive story with lots of energy. With a heavy easycore influence, we hope Model Citizen knocks everyone out of their seats!”

Meet Me @ The Altar’s upcoming Model Citizen EP is out August 13 via Fueled By Ramen, pre-order it here. They’ll also be touring with three different bands this summer and fall: supporting Coheed and Cambria & The Used at the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine on August 27 and with All Time Low at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on November 11.
