Germany-based indie-punk band The Deadnotes released their new single “Never Perfect” and its music video. The track is off of their forthcoming album ‘Courage’, which is set to be released on February 14th via 22Lives Records.

About the single, the band stated:
“Talking about mental health can be difficult at times. Depression often goes unseen, unrecognized, and undiagnosed. This video is about pausing, overcoming fears and having the COURAGE to face each other and yourself.”

“Never Perfect” is a candid and revealing song in which mental health plays a key theme. The single marks the beginning of a charitable partnership with two organizations offering help to people affected by mental health issues, especially those in the music and arts industries through Help Musicians / Music Minds Matter and Ni9ht H3lps Mental Health Support. The band will begin their efforts by donating 1€ of every tour ticket and 3€ for every turquoise vinyl sold via their band shop, as well as collecting donations at live shows and with more contributions planned for the near future.

The music video for “Never Perfect” was filmed in Dublin by Paul Ambusch accompanied by Darius Lohmüller. It portraits a person escaping the city to find comfort in the rural and natural landscapes surrounding Dublin in order to cope with struggling in everyday life.

Their new album ‘Courage’ was recorded at Crooked Rain Recording Studios in Leeds, produced by Bob Cooper (WSTR/Ducking Punches/Nervus), mixed by Beau Burchell (Saosin/The Bronx), and mastered by Mike Kalajian (Saosin/Prawn/Bouncing Souls).

The band formed when the members were just 14 years old, and they haven’t taken a moment’s rest since. They self-released both an EP and their debut album and have toured through over 25 European countries. Throughout the years, they have shared the stage with the likes of Boston Manor, Don Broco, Beach Slang, The Front Bottoms, and Such Gold.

To support the release of their upcoming album ‘Courage’, The Deadnotes will take to the road for an extensive run of shows across Germany, France, Austria, Czech Republic, and Switzerland before coming to an end with five specially selected UK dates.
