This fall,Mates of State will release their seventh LP Mountainhops, their first since 2008's Re-Arrange Us. The band's newest music video for "Maracas" is reminiscent of their older work in its catchy melody and carefree tone. Jimi Patterson and Emmy Pickett shot the video as it was performed live onstage using a "vintage 1982 VHS home camcorder in order to pay homage to the performance based rock television shows of the '80s and late 70s." Mates of State continues to be magnetically energetic in this video, hopefully giving us a preview of the quality of Mountainhops.

The band has also just announced a fall tour starting September 21st at D.C.'s 9:30 Club until October 12th where they will complete their East Coast Tour at NYC's Webster Hall. The tour will follow the album's release on September 13th.
