Neck Deep Unleashes Extraterrestrial-Themed Single ‘Take Me With You’

Neck Deep fans are in for a treat as the band drops their latest single, Take Me With You, featuring an extraterrestrial twist.

Frontman Ben Barlow explains that the song was inspired by the concept of being abducted by aliens as an escape from the challenges of the world.

‘Take Me With You’ is one of those songs where I had the title firstLiterally 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.

He continues “As always there’s a slight social commentary, ultimately I’d rather be (hypothetically) abducted by aliens than stick round 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.”

The track, laced with a touch of social commentary, adds a fun touch to the band’s repertoire.

Additionally, fans can mark their calendars for Neck Deep‘s headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace on March 28th, 2024, which they just announced. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 11th.
