The Laurence Warder– and Sam O’Leary-directed visual sees the band surrounded by draped cloths and burning candles as lights rapidly strobe, throwing shadows left and right.

“Congregation” possesses a muted energy that thrums just below the surface of the track. During the chorus, Amy Walpole‘s vocals bring this intensity forward, making its presence undeniable.

In a press release, Walpole shares the band’s feelings about Congregation.

 “As our first album, we’re really excited to just get it out there,” she says. “We feel that it’s a step above what we’ve done before, as we had a chance to experiment with sound and structure. It was our first opportunity to explore writing a body of work, which was challenging.”

Witch Fever will also open for My Chemical Romance May 19 at Milton Keynes.
