Neck Deep has released the third track and music video for 'Motion Sickness', the lead track on their upcoming album, The Peace and The Panic, due out August 18th via Hopeless Records. On the track, singer Ben Barlow shares, “Motion Sickness is the song that really bridges the vibe and lyrical message of Life’s Not Out To Get You to the new album. It’s the song on ‘The Peace & The Panic’ that shares the most in common with what we’ve done before, whilst still fitting with the rest of the new material. Like a lot of the new record, it carries a theme of duality; the verses are about confusion and struggle, but the choruses are about not giving up, not letting hard times get the best of you.”
The video follows the band during their recording process in Southern California. With its day in the life vibe, it shows how the band spent their days as well as live footage from their recent performances headlining Slam Dunk in the UK. Barlow continues saying “We shot the video with our friend and close collaborator Elliott Ingham whilst we were in LA recording the album. The song is so upbeat and energetic that we didn’t want the video to be too serious, so we just hung out on our days off from the studio and stitched all the footage together. There are some cool shots from the studio and from our headline sets at Slam Dunk in there too… The video just matches the songs mood of seizing life and grabbing opportunities that are in front of you.”
Their upcoming album, produced by Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, Paramore) is out August 18. You can order the PEACE and PANIC bundles here: https://neckdeep.lnk.to/TPATP.
