Australia's NORTHLANE has released the official music video for its new song "Citizen". The track was recorded in New Jersey by producer David Bendeth (BRING ME THE HORIZON, A DAY TO REMEMBER, PARAMORE).
Speaking about the meaning of the song, NORTHLANE guitarist Josh Smith said: "'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. We went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work, but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all."
"Citizen" is the first new NORTHLANE song to be released following "Intuition", which received its live debut at UNIFY Gathering 2017.

NORTHLANE's last full-length studio release was 2015's "Node". A split three-track "Equinox" EP with IN HEARTS WAKE — featuring all ten members of both bands — came out last year.
"Node" was the first NORTHLANE to feature vocalist Marcus Bridge, who joined the band after the departure of longtime frontman Adrian Fitipaldes. Adrian left the band unexpectedly in 2014, citing health issues.
