U.K. pop punks Neck Deep will be releasing their third studio album The Peace And The Panic on August 18th through Hopeless Records. In an interview with Alternative Press, frontman Ben Barlow said of the new record:

The Peace And The Panic is about how we’ve grown up and experienced life in the last couple of years. When we were writing Life’s Not Out To Get You, we were going through a period of uninterrupted happiness. We were super-content, but as that album came out, life changed for us. Over the two years we’ve toured that record, so much has happened that I’ve re-evaluated what life is about and questioned whether just having a positive outlook is enough.”

Two samples off the record have premiered along with music video. Check out the tracks “Where Do We Go When We Go” and “Happy Judgement Day” below. Regarding the singles, Barlow offered:

‘Where Do We Go When We Go’ is the last track on the record, and we feel it summarizes our mood well. Very directly, the message is: ‘Fuck all this shit, fuck all the noise, let’s just make something of ourselves before our time is up.’ ‘Happy Judgement Day’ is on the panic side, and really, that song is a comment on the current social and political climate. That feels like an important topic, and it’s a panic for a lot of people right now—where’s the world going? It should also be said that the reason we put that song out first is because—in typical Neck Deep fashion—there’s a big, fat riff at the start of it.”

Links to physical and digital pre-orders of the record are available at this location. You can catch the band all summer long on this year’s Vans Warped Tour.
