Neck Deep have dropped a new single, “STFU.” The band also shared a ’90s-inspired music video to go with the track.
“STFU” is Neck Deep’s first new music in two years and their first self-released track in a decade.
In “STFU,” Neck Deep return to their roots, leaning heavily into a kinetic pop-punk sound. While auditorily evoking the past, the track’s lyrics satirize the surreal nature of today’s online society, asking when did everything become so vapid.
The music video doubles down on this commentary, embodying the era of AIM and Network Neighborhood. Neck Deep jam out in a basement before removing an ancient cuboid computer from the house and taking a bat to it.
Vocalist Ben Barlow spoke about the track’s inspiration in a press release.
“As the world was falling apart at the time, and only seems to have worsened recently, it felt right to satirize the decline of society in typical punk fashion,” Barlow says. “Looking at the world through a screen and being lured into the impending sense of doom that’s overcome us all.”
Additionally, Neck Deep will embark on their North American tour May 31. Check below for tour dates, and get your tickets here.
