Melodic metalcore band Vital Signs has released their first music video, a clip for their jam “Forgive and Regret.” The song comes from the Sacramento, CA-based band’s second EP, Vengeance, set to come out in Spring 2016. Guitarist Alex Bolton spoke about the song via press release:

“‘Forgive and Regret’ is a song I’ve been working on for years, and the song concept really touches home for both myself and (vocalist Alex) Runk in relation to our recent pasts. This is the first song Vital Signs has released in almost a year, and I feel like it is the perfect note to come back on. It is a bit of a foreshadowing of our progressing sound.”

The band’s debut EP, Smoke&Mirrors, came out at the beginning of 2015, which you can stream below. If you dig the sound of the new band, you can follow them on Twitter or check them out on Instagram.
