Meet Me @ The Altar continue their hot streak of dropping bangers with their latest track.
It's called 'Brighter Days (Are Before Us)' and exudes a fresh and fiercely positive outlook sandwiched between some infectiously bludgeoning and technically vibrant easycore ruffs. It's the very essence of fun and freedom, and it's impossible to listen without feeling like the sun is starting to peek from behind the clouds in front of you.
The band had to say about the song:
"Brighter Days (Are Before Us) is one of the ups in life where things are starting to shape up. If our upcoming EP Model Citizen was a movie, ‘Brighter Days’ would be the scene where everything in life is still good right before it all hits the fan. We were so excited to work with a female director, Sydney Ostrander, for the music video and the lighting in the airplane we filmed inside perfectly reflects the meaning of the song.”
And here is that very video for you to enjoy:
The track is set to appear on the band's upcoming EP 'Model Citizen', which will be dropping on August 13 via Fueled By Ramen.
Guitarist Téa Campbell had this to say about the EP:
“To me, Model Citizen is about acknowledging that you aren’t where you would like to be in life. You’re experiencing those lows and highs that put everything into perspective and show you the steps you need to take. The idea of being a 'Model Citizen' isn’t reality, because no one can be perfect. However, you can recognise the need to be better. If you’re on any kind of stage, you’re going to be a role model, whether you want to be or not. We’re honoured to be in a position where people are listening, so we’re going to encourage them.”
It will also feature the awesome 'Feel A Thing', which sounds like this:
