Neck Deep have been hard at work on their forthcoming, yet-to-be-announced album. Vocalist Ben Barlow shared that the new track is “a classic sounding Neck Deep song, catchy, angsty, pacey, powerful and a little bit pathetic!”

Barlow continued, “We wanted the video to feel classic/nostalgic, something that was entertaining to watch rather than your usual. It features some of our best (worst) acting to date and is one of our favorite videos we’ve ever done.” You can check out the video for “Heartbreak Of The Century” below.

Download Festival will run from June 8-11 at Donington Park. You can check out the full Download Festival lineup below and get tickets here.
