The performance was taped at the group's record release party in the "resurrected" L.A. venue Club Lingerie on Wednesday, so the clip will provide a chance to see the band in their natural element: exploding in front of a pack their amped-up fans.

Off!'s debut EP is out now on 7" vinyl and fans can see the band on Oct. 21 in New York as part of CMJ and Nov. 7 at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest.
