British pop-punk new comers Deadlock (UK) unveil news of their lyric video for forthcoming debut single ‘Deadweight’.
Clocking in at just over 2 and a half minutes – the adrenaline fuelled and emotionally charged offering showcases a potent taste of things to come from the Norwich based outfit. The band who cite key influences such as Neck Deep, Roam, As It Is and Boston Manor shall be officially releasing ‘Deadweight’ on digital platforms on 29th July 2022.
Frontman, guitarist and songwriter Mikey Murphy propelled ‘Deadlock’ (UK) into existence early in 2022.
Born out of his penchant for latter day pop punk and melodic hard-core, Mikey poured his creative energies into morphing a collection of cathartic, guitar-driven & melodically infused tracks. Straight to the point, no nonsense pop-punk that sparkles with overtones of commercial charm whilst still maintaining underground credibility.
What began as a collection of self-produced home recordings, soon found their way into the guiding hands of producers Sam Pura and Terry Beckley who helped sonically refine ‘Deadweight’. Lyrically tackling the subject of mental health issues – the single’s underlying theme explores struggling with inner emotional conflict, knowing things wont progress unless you take the first steps by yourself. ‘Deadweight’ is the first in a flurry of releases anticipated in the foreseeable future.
The young and ambitious Deadlock have begun their ascent to prove themselves as a promising new rock act. A band with the potential to soon establish their presence within the UK punk scene.
