Life's Not out to Get You is the second studio album by Welsh pop punk band Neck Deep. Following the success of their debut album, Wishful Thinking (2014), the majority of the band members quit their day jobs and vocalist Ben Barlow dropped out of university. Working with Jeremy McKinnon, Andrew Wade and Tom Denney, the band recorded their second album between December 2014 and January 2015. Following recording the band immediately went on tour. Life's Not out to Get You was preceded by two singles: "Can't Kick Up the Roots" in May 2015 and "Gold Steps" in July. "Can't Kick Up the Roots" charted at number 16 in the UK on the Rock & Metal Singles chart. In early August, "Threat Level Midnight" was made available for streaming. It was released by Hopeless on 14 August. The album charted at number 8 in the UK, reached the top 20 in the US, and reached the top 40 in Ireland and Australia. Nine days after the album's release, guitarist Lloyd Roberts left the band due to allegations of sexual misconduct.
