Youngstown, OH-based Alteras has teamed up with HM to premiere the new music video for “After All.” The song comes from their upcoming debut release, Grief, set to hit stores and digital outlets this Friday, Nov. 13. The album was produced by Nick Ingram in their home state at Capital House Studios. Vocalist Jake Clasen spoke with HM about the video for the track:

“We wanted dancers in our video to have our music portrayed through another art form; what better form than dance? We’re from Ohio but had a location in mind in NYC so we loaded up the tour van, drove overnight from Ohio and met our production team and their dance team in the city and got straight to work. We think the Alteras fans will love this, and we’re proud to be able to give them this video and to work with such a great team.”

Alteras has previously released an EP, Shapeshifter, in 2013. Grief will be the first full-length from the quintet.

Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
