UK pop-punk heroes Neck Deep have just dropped a new video for their latest single ‘Parachute’. The single is taken from their recent full-length album “The Peace and The Panic”, released back in August 2017.
The colourful video plays to the band’s strengths: energetic verses with bouncy drum and guitar patterns, and vocalist Ben Barlow’s catchy vocal melodies. Barlow’s vocals provide an unforgettable chorus you’re sure to be humming to yourself hours after listening. The contrast in lighting between the verse and chorus builds on the band’s artistic vision for the album, with the walls closing in on them towards the end of the video. The energy the Neck Deep puts out in the video is reminiscent of their animated live show, and the video utilizes artful transitions between the chaotic use of lighting in the chorus back and the calmer, brighter daytime lighting throughout the verses. The level of thought that Neck Deep continue to put into their music and videos just further cements that this album, and its latest single, won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

The debut of the video also saw the release of some new ‘Parachute’ inspired T-shirts on their online merch store, which you can check out here.
Prior to its release, “The Peace and The Panic” was included by Alternative Press on their list of most anticipated albums of the year, and after its release hit #1 on the UK Independent Albums Charts and #8 on the ARIA Charts. The band was recently announced as part of the line-up for Australia’s very own Download Festival, held at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday the 24th of March 2018. Despite the mixed reception Download’s Australian line-up has received so far, fans are eager to see Neck Deep’s return Down Under.
