Neck Deep premiere skate-inspired video for “Fall”
Brit rockers Neck Deep are back with the latest single from their forthcoming album. The video for “Fall”, released earlier in June, features the band demonstrating their love of skateboarding and finding release in this unexpected touring downtime.
Says singer Ben Barlow, “We looked at some of the things we love most- fucking around on tour and skateboarding. We decided to reach out to skaters that we have met along our touring journey, that we believe deserve some recognition, and give them a platform to display their amazing talents. We also dug into our archive of tour footage and put it to good use. Giving you an insight into the world of Neck Deep. Expect to get all nostalgic looking back on better days, but also to stoke up some excitement for when things are back to normal.”
