UK’s Neck Deep have premiered a music video for “Gold Steps” today. This is the second single off their highly anticipated sophomore full-length album

Life’s Not Out To Get You

which is set to drop on August 14th. Fans can watch the video on

Records‘ YouTube channel now here:, and pre-order the album, which was recently noted as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s Most Anticipated albums of the year here:


Vocalist Ben Barlow said this of the track: “As soon as you click play, you’re gonna be hit in the face with a riff! We wanted this to be a fun song; we wanted to make people move, to mosh, jump around and scream the lyrics. And in the lyrics I really just wanted to shed some positivity on a somewhat pessimistic scene. I don’t want our fans to be cutting themselves listening to our music – I wanted people to know that life’s not out to get you.


About the “Gold Steps” music video, Ben had this to say: “We wanted the video to be as fun as the song. We worked with a director called Kyle Thrash who absolutely killed it. It’s basically us driving through some Pennsylvania back roads on a flat bed truck with a mini skate ramp on it, and we’re playing on the ramp before ending up at a lake where we played in front of a massive firework display! It was pretty sketchy, there was absolutely no health and safety involved, but it was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone that came down to the shoot, they really helped bring a great vibe and a lot of energy, and I really think that comes across in the video.”


In addition, the band has announced a short run of in-store acoustic performances and signings to celebrate the release of Life’s Not Out To Get You! US fans in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania will have a chance to hear the band perform songs off the new album a couple of days before the official release date. Entry will be granted with a pre-order of the album at the corresponding record store.


The band has been on the road in the US all summer for the 2015 Vans Warped Tour! Due to huge crowds, the band has been moved up to perform on the main stage multiple times. Fans can purchase tickets for all remaining tour dates here:


Formed in 2012, Neck Deep is vocalist Ben Barlow, guitarists Lloyd Roberts & Matt West, bassist Fil Thorpe- Evans and drummer Dani Washington. The band has been seen on the covers of major music publications such as Kerrang!, Rock Sound and Alternative Press Magazine. They were the recipients of the “Best British Newcomer” at the 2014 Kerrang! Awards and opened for pop-punk kings, Blink-182 at their sold out Brixton Academy show in London. Neck Deep was also chosen as one of Zane Lowe’s (Radio 1) “Future 15 of 2015”.


Their previous full-length, Wishful Thinking, was welcomed with critical acclaim and was #15 on Rock Sound’s Top 40 Album of the Year, #30 on Kerrang! Magazine’s Top 50 Albums of the Year and #23 on Triple J’s Short.Loud.Fast Listeners poll.
