Motion City Soundtrack in video game promo

Motion City Soundtrack have released a video for their track It’s A Pleasure To Meet You.

It features on their sixth album Panic Stations, out on September 18 via Epitaph Records.

The video was created by David Prindle and pays homage to video games including Pong, Robot Unicorn Attack and old school role-playing games.
