UK pop punk act Neck Deep have announced their highly anticipated third studio album, The Peace and The Panic will be out August 18th on 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.
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.”
