Saosin have released the music video for Control And The Urge To Pray.

The track is taken from their upcoming album Along The Shadow, which will be released on May 20. It can pre-ordered on iTunes.

The follow-up to 2009’s In Search Of Solid Ground sees Anthony Green returning as vocalist for the first time since 2004’s Translating The Name EP.

Bassist Chris Sorenson tells Billboard: “This was a song that we knew we had to see through. The demo started off very differently and we were unsure if it would fit into the way the record was shaping.

“But once vocals were demoed and a few things were moved around we knew that it was something very powerful.”

Saosin will tour the US in June and July, with a one-off headline date at Islington O2 Academy in London on April 30.
