    Operating out of New York City, indie outfit Challenger is John Ross, a songwriter and producer whose work in music predates this most recent creative project Ross has a background as a composer for film and television. With the addition of a backing band for live performances, Challenger got its start in 2012 with debut LP The World Is Too Much For Me, solidly establishing Ross' eclectic, synth-infused sound.

    The band returned recently for a sophomore full-length effort, Back to Bellevue, released digitally back in May, and recorded in Ross' childhood bedroom in Florida in a break from his home-base of Brooklyn. The album, which features vocals from Ian Dudley of the Inner Outlaws and Jon Lawless of First Rate People, sees Challenger's cinematic sound amplified even further. Now, the band's premiering a video for their single "Science of a Seizure." The video, directed by Caleb Rugg and shot at Pennhurst Hospital near Philadelphia, features Ross acting as the abandoned asylum's resident phantom, vocalizing behind delays, high-voltage synth lines, and percussion.

    Watch the video below. Back to Bellevue is available now via iTunes.
