Neck Deep Get Abducted On “Take Me With You”

Neck Deep are back once again and showing why they continue to be the leaders of modern pop-punk in every regard. 2023 has seen them release one song up until now, the romantically rousing “Heartbreak Of The Century“. But now, they are serving up more delicious stagedive fuel, and it focuses its attention to the skies.

The band’s new track is called “Take Me With You” and is an ode to alien visitors, which seems incredibly apt for right now. Encased in a classic Neck Deep shell, with plenty of addictive melodies and a gritty attitude, it’s a song all about trying to escape the hellhole that is Earth. And if the only way to do that is to be abducted by an extra-terrestrial and taken to another planet, then so be.

It’s fun, frantic and sure to put a smile on your face. All of the things that make Neck Deep such a welcome staple in the scene.

Vocalist Ben Barlow had this to say about it:

Take Me With You’ is one of those songs where I had the title first. Literally as simple as – we should write a song about aliens called Take Me With You. So conceptually and lyrically it was pretty straightforward. A few of us in the band are big UFO heads, particularly Seb (Barlow, bass), so we had a lot of fun writing this one.

As always there’s a slight social commentary, ultimately I’d rather be (hypothetically) abducted by aliens than stick around on this ‘hellish sack of burning trash’. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a slight nod to Blink 182’s ‘Aliens Exist’ too, but you can blame Tom for infecting my fragile mind at a young age and then going and busting the UFO world wide open! It’s a little bit of fun before we come at people with the more meaningful stuff a little later down the line.”

And if that wasn’t enough, the band have also announced their biggest-ever headline show. They will finally be playing the iconic Alexandra Palace in London next year. On March 24, to be exact. Tickets will be available from this Friday (August 11).

Ben had this to say about the reveal:

“It’s been a long time coming but we’re stoked to be finally headlining Ally Pally! We’ve supported a few times there and always loved the venue. But now – it’s our turn for our biggest-ever headline show. I’m expecting it to be the best Neck Deep show ever, and you wouldn’t wanna miss that would ya?”
