Fast-rising pop-punk trio Meet Me @ The Altar have released new song and video for Say It (To My Face), which gives a well-deserved slap to their online haters and trolls.
"The song is essentially a diss track to all of our haters," say the band. "We all have a love/hate relationship with the internet – it quite literally brought us together, but people also use the internet as a crutch to help mask their insecurities behind a screen and try to project them on us a lot of the time. They never seem to have the guts to actually say it to our faces."
Speaking about the video, in which the band track down one of their negative commentators and smash his basement to pieces, MM@TA say, "The video serves as a real time portrayal of who we envision as the culprits when we see hateful comments left on our social media accusing us of everything from being industry plants to not playing our own instruments – like a Catfish-style expose to go see how your bullies are actually living (usually not well).
"When our fans listen to this song and encounter bullies in their day-to-day life, we want them to remember that those people are only cruel because they’re hurting! Part of growing up is figuring out how to not internalise anyone else’s bad vibes and just loving yourself instead."
