VIDEO NEWS: Neck Deep Release Video For ‘Sick Joke’
Neck Deep have released a video for their Sick Joke, taken from their forthcoming album All Distortions Are Intentional which is due for release on Friday (24th July 2020).
“It’s a song that questions the fabric of reality whilst battling mental health,” explains frontman Ben Barlow. “Jett contemplates whether life itself is even real, in fairly ethereal terms, due to the internal suffering he is experiencing. Shredding solos, punchy rhythms and stomping drums drive the song along, and it sonically represents the more minor/ driven side of the record.”
The video for Sick Joke was created during lockdown, as the band self-shot their individual performance sequences at their homes on their phones against cheap green screens bought from eBay. Long time visual collaborators Chris Blockd and Elliot Ingham handled the direction remotely via Facetime and messenger DM, and also handled the edit. Meanwhile, the visuals were created and animated by Harry Mitchell, a fan of the band who has become a close creative collaborative partner during the All Distortions Are Intentional campaign.
All Distortions Are Intentional is due for release on 24th July 2020 via Hopeless Records, available to pre-order HERE.
