Wrexham’s Neck Deep yesterday released the music video for new single, ‘Don’t Wait’ (feat. Sam Carter of Architects), taken from their UK & US Top 5 album, ‘The Peace and The Panic’.
The ‘beggar/deity’ character is prominent in all of their lives and has tried to guide them in what they’re doing, however successfully or unsuccessfully. As well as this deity, all the characters are featured being bound by ropes, metaphorically being ‘controlled’.
All of these visual references tie into the lyrics of the song and it’s really down to the viewer for them to try and understand it and work it out! For that reason I think it’s one of the most interesting and visually appealing videos we’ve ever done. We wanted to stray from the typical ‘band in a forest’ type set up and really let the story and the meaning of the song drive the video. OWIG really did nail this one and I’m beyond stoked to have been involved in some capacity. All I can say is good luck working it out! Enjoy!”
Neck Deep headline The Avalanche Stage on Saturday evening at this weekend’s Download Festival. Other European festival performances follow before the band embark on another nationwide US headline tour throughout September and October, with the band wrapping up the year with shows in Australia.
