Neck Deep have today released a new single and a must-see accompanying music video, ‘Heartbreak Of The Century’. In the words of vocalist Ben Barlow, ‘Heartbreak Of The Century’is “a classic sounding Neck Deep song. Catchy, angsty, pacey, powerful and a little bit pathetic!”
“We took the idea of ‘The Heartbreak Of The Century’ and imagined if you could actually win an award for that,” shares Barlow. “So there we had it, a shitty Oscars, where we won the Heartbreak Of The Century award. We wanted the video to feel classic/nostalgic, something that was entertaining to watch rather than your usual. It features some of our best (worst) acting to date and is one of our favourite videos we’ve ever done.”
‘Heartbreak Of The Century’ follows the band’s 2022 single ‘STFU,’ which true to title, was a sub-three minute blast of middle-fingers up pop-punk perfection. ‘Heartbreak…’ continues the callback to the band’s earlier sound, fittingly recorded with Andrew Wade, who previously worked with the band on 2015’s critically acclaimed album, Life’s Not Out To Get You, a UK Top 5 album, a feat also achieved by 2017’s The Peace And The Panic and 2020’s All Distortions Are Intentional.

Over the last decade, Neck Deep have gatecrashed the charts, both at home and internationally, sold hundreds of thousands of records and concert tickets, graced magazine covers all over the world and toured with some of the biggest names in the business in the process. With the band now in their second decade, you’d continue to be foolish to bet against the boys from Wrexham.
