Pop punk rockers NECK DEEP announce new record “The Peace and the Panic”; release 2 music videos!

NECK DEEP!
NECK DEEP has announced their highly anticipated third studio album, The Peace And The Panic, due out August 18th via Hopeless Records. The 11-track album, produced by Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, Paramore), is a meditation on the constant duality of life and the struggles that come with it. It comes blessed with an acknowledgement that seizing the day and having a laugh with your mates is important, but so is the personal growth that comes with pain and existential crisis. This album will show a duality of sounds, which carries through to the various PEACE and PANIC pre-order bundles, now available here. Additionally, the band has released the first two singles and music videos from the album after their first spins last Sunday on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. Fans can watch the videos for “Where Do We Go When We Go” and “Happy Judgement Day” below!

On the album, lead singer Ben Barlow says,

“It’s not all ‘Let’s have a party and grab a beer’ this time, but I wouldn’t say it’s pessimistic, just realistic. Trying to make something of your life is a big theme on this record, as is dealing with depression and anxiety. We’ve all found ourselves in the last few years and grown up a bit. I’ve had to do a lot of soul-searching and maybe I’ve been hardened by life a little bit, but I feel ready to take on the world again, just in a different way.”

Lyrics:

Pain, pain go away
Come back another day
I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.
I can’t put my faith in a fallacy,
I don’t wanna wait for that goodbye to see what could’ve been.
And I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.

I guess we’ll never know,
If when were gone there’s a place to go.
Or if we don’t see anything at all,
Is that what were supposed to call faith?
Well if that is that, and it all just fades to black,
And we don’t see anything at all,
We don’t see anything
What are you waiting for?

Pain, pain go away
Come back another day
I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.
I can’t put my faith in a fallacy
I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.

The world is a funny place,
It kicks you when you’re down
And knocks you out when you get up again.
I don’t think it’s worth suffering through.
But on the other hand,
There’s a world full of possibilities
And a million other people just like you
Who’ve all been through what you’ve been through,
They were singing…

I saw it all flash and pass by
With bright lights
And right before my eyes was the Exit sign.
I saw it all flash and pass by,
And asked why I wasted precious time,
It just passed me by.

We are just passing by.

Pain, pain go away
Come back another day
I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.
I can’t put my faith in a fallacy,
I don’t wanna wait for that goodbye to see what could’ve been.
And I just wanna get one up on life before it kills me.

Lyrics:

Oh, what a time to be alive!
Wake up and smell the dynamite.
Keep your eyes locked tight to your screen,
Don’t believe everything that you see,
And you’ll find, that modern life’s a catastrophe

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this could be farewell?
Oh, we almost had it
But we pissed it all away.
Building walls and dropping bombs,
Stop the world I’m getting off.
It’s been a long time coming,
Never thought I’d see the day,
When the world went up in flames.

We all worship celebrities, desperate for an identity,
But cigarettes and MDMA don’t give you substance.
You don’t think about what you say,
Cuz’ your mouth is bigger than your brain.
It’s a shame, so fake and you’re all the same.

There’s a black cat up in the windows of Parliament,
There’s a man in the back of a black cab, talking about the good days,
When it all went up in flames,
Happy Judgement Day.
It all went up in flames,
Happy Judgement Day.

Their previous full-length, Life’s Not Out To Get You, debuted at #9 on Top Current Albums and hit #17 on the Billboard 200 charts, as well as #8 in the Official UK Top 10 chart. LNOTGY has sold over 60,000 units in the US and over 35,000 in the UK. The record was also listed as #3 on Rock Sound and #13 on Kerrang!’s ‘Top 50 albums of 2015’ charts. Additionally, the album has seen over 100 Million streams on Spotify and saw great play on Sirius XM Faction and additional radio stations.

For Wrexham pop-punks Neck Deep, the trajectory of the last half decade has been, seemingly, one of unbridled success. Comprehensively the most successful British band in the history of their genre, and with an average age of just 23, they have risen – at a pace so head-spinning it nearly snapped necks – to become the zeitgeist capturing band of their generation and scene. They’ve scored Kerrang! and Alternative Press awards along the way, completed two summer-long stints at Warped Tour to unprecedented crowds, worked alongside legends like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and completed a 2016 headline world tour of their own which took in some 15 countries across 4 months and sold in excess of 52,000 tickets.

The truth, as anyone who has even a little experience will tell you, is that when life takes away it also gives – in self-confidence, in conviction and in a galvanized dedication to expressing what lies inside you in the very best way you can. Neck Deep are here to prove that, and a whole lot more besides.
