Welsh rock band Neck Deep have released their latest single “Take Me With You” via Hopeless Records. The angsty pop-punk ballad comes with an eerie extraterrestrial twist.

Lead vocalist Ben Barlow confesses, “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a slight nod to blink-182’s ‘Aliens Exist,'” adding, “but you can blame Tom [DeLonge] for infecting my fragile mind at a young age and then going and busting the UFO world wide open.”

The new track finds the frontman screaming for help into the unknown, inspired by the thought of being abducted by aliens as an escape from the struggles of the world. Barlow says he’d “rather be (hypothetically) abducted by aliens than stick ’round on this ‘hellish sack of burning trash.'”

The song title actually came to the rock singer first. Barlow explains, “[It was] literally as simple as “we should write a song about aliens called ‘Take Me With You.’ A few of us in the band are big UFO heads, particularly Seb. It’s ultimately a little bit of fun before we come at people with the more meaningful stuff a little later down the line.”

Alongside the alien-heavy track, Neck Deep have announced a headlining performance at London’s legendary Alexandra Palace (affectionately dubbed “Ally Pally”) on March 28.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re stoked to be finally headlining Ally Pally. I’m expecting it to be the best Neck Deep show ever, and you wouldn’t wanna miss that would ya?” Barlow shares. Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday.
