Watch The Nostalgic Video For Neck Deep’s New Single, Fall
Following on from the audio release of their ace new single Fall, Neck Deep have premiered a charming accompanying video for the track in which they give fans “an insight into the world” of the band.
Joining forces with skaters Cordano Russell, Bone Stalone, Alex Dechuna, Jerrod La Rue, Tommy Corbridge and Roxana Howlett, the pop-punks’ new video showcases both some insanely great talent, plus a whole load of footage from the days when Neck Deep could actually, y’know… tour.
“COVID-19 has made shooting videos all the more challenging,” explains frontman Ben Barlow. “So, we looked at some of the things we love most: fucking around on tour and skateboarding. We decided to reach out to skaters that we have met along our touring journey, that we believe deserve some recognition, and give them a platform to display their amazing talents.
“We also dug into our archive of tour footage and put it to good use. Giving you an insight into the world of Neck Deep. Expect to get all nostalgic looking back on better days, but also to stoke up some excitement for when things are back to normal. It’s all just good hearted fun, both in the track and in the video and we hope you enjoy listening and watching as much as we and this great bunch of skaters had whilst doing all this crazy shit!”
Ben adds of the meaning behind the song itself: “Fall is a song about excess, release and escape. Although not a healthy coping mechanism we can all relate to turning to substances and social situations to liberate us from the internal struggles of life. This song paints a point in which Jett meets his newfound love, Alice, for the first time. A wild night where love blossoms in the midst of excess and escapism, from the come up to the come down and the realities both of those things bring. It sets us up for a love story full of ups, downs, discoveries and epiphanies.”
