Neck Deep are celebrating five years of ‘The Peace And The Panic’ with a genre-blending reworking.
Neck Deep’s ‘The Peace And The Panic’ was released five years ago today (August 18).
A brilliantly open and insatiably catchy collection of tracks that further cemented ND as one of the finest scene songwriters of the last decade, it’s still as visceral and vital now as when it first dropped.
And in celebrating the record, the band have once again pushed their own boundaries with a new remix.
Put together by WHOKILLEDXIX, this version of ‘In Bloom’ is a low-key beauty, full of intricate drums and keys. It takes the core of the song and adds new levels of emotional outpouring and melody and completely turns it on its head.
Ben Barlow had this to say about it:
“We’re stoked on the remix of in bloom by WHOKILLEDXIX. We love hearing a different take on our music, especially across different genres and this turned out really cool. Hope you enjoy!”
And WHOKILLEDXIX added this:
“This is one of the songs we used to cover as a pop punk band in highschool. It’s cool as fuck that we got the chance to put our own spin on it.
Have a listen for yourself:
And here is the original. Simply iconic.
The band released a new track a couple of months ago called ‘STFU’, which we chatted to vocalist Ben Barlow about right HERE.
