Mat Kerekes - 'Forgiveness' Video Premiere

Watch the new video by Mat Kerekes for a song from the Citizen frontman's new self-titled solo EP.

Midwestern band Citizen has been on the run for the past year. They toured in support of both The Wonder Years and Polar Bear Club, and also released the 'Youth' album through Run For Cover Records. And in addition to playing Riot Fest (both the Toronto and Chicago dates), the band will embark on its first headlining tour in September.

None of this road action has prevented Citizen frontman Mat Kerekes from releasing a solo, self-titled EP through Synergy Records. The six song EP -- three new songs, three demos -- is available digitally now through ITunes, and will be available as a vinyl 12-inch on August 26. A pre-order link's below.

Today we're excited to premiere Kerekes' new video for 'Forgiveness,' a song from his new EP. It's a melancholic, delicate, reflective tune, and the video is the same. It shows Mat and a mysterious masked woman slowly swimming and floating underwater. It's a calm and beautiful but heartbreaking experience. Watch it above.

Pre-order the vinyl version of Mat Karekes' EP.
