Neck Deep has released ‘Sick Joke,’ which follows ‘I Revolve (Around You),’ ‘Fall,’ ‘When You Know’ and ‘Lowlife’ as the most recent single from the new album ‘All Distortions Are Intentional.’ “It’s a song that questions the fabric of reality whilst battling mental health,” shares frontman Ben Barlow on the track. “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.”
A true team effort, with remote direction and editing from long-time visual collaborators Chris Blockd and Elliot Ingham, each member of the band shot their individual performance sequences at their homes against green screens bought from eBay. Meanwhile, the visuals were created and animated by Harry Mitchell, a fan of the band who has become a close creative collaborative partner over these last few months of the ADAI era.
