With just one week to go until Neck Deep's LP drops via Hopeless Records, the band is treating fans to a floral feast fit for a king!

The pop-punk dudes have hit us right in our feels with this new release, and let's be honest - it called out to our inner teenage emo selves! Packed with slow building verses, sing along choruses, and vocals that are powerful in delivery, the fans won't be able to get enough.

When "Life Is Not Out To Get You" dropped just over two years ago, the band was in a content state of happiness. Life was great. In the two years since that record's release, however, life has changed and the band was forced to re-evaluate their lives according to frontman, Ben Barlow.

That's what "In Bloom" is all about. Lyrically speaking, they are telling us that things are not the same, the pieces of their lives are never going to fit back together the same way again. The band says in one line, "Stop digging it up, or we're never going to see it all in bloom." They are saying to leave the past in the past and move forward in life. Let it grow and blossom.

The lyrics cooerlate to the title in every aspect, and musically speaking, the song has that signature pop-punk vibe. There is a slow start to the song, but as it progresses, the build up in the tone and direction grows as well. It's a fun tune that you can jam out to and it's easy enough to sing to!

Overall, Neck Deep has outdone themselves. If this song was fantastic, we cannot wait to hear the rest of the record! "In Bloom" earns a 10 out of 10!
