The Neighbourhood returns with the new single, “R.I.P. 2 My Youth.” It’s the lead track from their sophomore album Wiped Out! The album, set to be released Oct. 30 via Columbia/The Revolve Group, in the midst of the band preparing for a tour in the fall – including a stop October 29th at the Shrine Expo Hall.
“R.I.P. 2 My Youth” is already a Top 40 hit on the U.S. Alternative charts, reaching No. 33. Although it still has yet to enter Billboard’s Hot 100, it did peak at No. 22 on the Bubbling Under chart. The Bubbling Under list is considered an extension of the Hot 100.
The Neighbourhood is known for their black and white music videos. The clip for the song’s audio fits that theme. The video, directed by Hype Williams, can be seen above.
