Pop-punk kings New Found Glory have been hard at work on another set of covers of some of the most beloved movie songs ever recorded, and on May 3 the band will release From the Screen to the Stereo 3. It’s the third installment in a series of EPs of the same theme, coming after previous editions in 2000 and 2007.

This time around, the band — vocalist Jordan Pundik, bassist Ian Grushka, guitarist Chad Gilbert and drummer Cyrus Bolooki — self-recorded the album and self-produced music videos for all seven of the EP’s songs. The first one released is their send-up of the Huey Lewis and the News classic “The Power of Love,” as featured in Back to the Future.

The video was premiered on Wednesday, and it’s just a stellar effort all around. Blending both live action (with Pundik playing the Marty McFly role and Bolooki donning his best Doc costume) and animation, it’s highly entertaining and, surely, a treat for Back to the Future fans. Notice how the band is playing in an ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ theme, of course:

New Found Glory launched pre-sales for From the Screen to the Stereo 3 at its website. Here’s the track listing:

1. “Cups”
2. “This Is Me”
3. “The Power Of Love”
4.”Let It Go”
5. “Accidentally In Love”
6. “A Thousand Years”
7. “Eye Of The Tiger”
