Fullerton, CA electronic-infused rock band Neo Geo posted their new music video for the song "DT Killer" on March 27, 2012.

Without a doubt both the band and director Elliot Dillman (of Bankrupt Films) had a blast making this video.

The song is the first track off the band's forthcoming, self-titled debut set for a May/June release via Diminished Fifth Records. Said the band of the music video: "The video was shot in Dan Moore's basement in February of 2012. It was a snowy day and early in the morning, never really knew where it was going. We just decided to shoot a little music video to one of our songs "The Great Shadow" appearing on the upcoming CD. Shot by Dan's cousin Paddy Moore, we did this on a whim not knowing what to expect and kind of done it for shits and giggles. Paddy did a great job, and it's cool how it gives onliners more a visual presence of WOK. We don't have much out there yet in video, a few local shows, but nothing really well produced as a 'music video'."

Both the group and director Aaron Hymes came up with the concept for the video which was filmed over the course of two days in California. Singer Bert McCracken adds: "The music video for 'I Come Alive' is simply a piece of art to be enjoyed. Our band in no way condones violence or teen bullying. The song, for me, is about falling down or hitting the ground; when things happen to you in life. That's pretty much what 'Box Full of Sharp Objects' was about as well, on the first record. Taking a hit can be the most inspirational thing that can happen to you."
