Northlane have released a video for their new track Citizen.

The video was filmed by Jason Eshragian and it comes after the band issued a mysterious clip earlier this month under the title MESMER.

Guitarist Josh Smith says of the new track: “Citizen is a song that was written about the first world police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer.

“Writing this one was quite a mission – it took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.”

Citizen is now available to purchase via iTunes.

Northlane gave fans the first taste of their new material at the Unify gathering in January where they unveiled Intuition. Their last full-length studio release was 2015’s Node and they issued the split three-track Equinox EP with In Hearts Wake featuring all 10 members of both bands last year.

Northlane will head out on tour later this year, with dates planned in the Far East, Australia and Europe. Find a full list below.
