Accompanying the song is a music video that is very similar to the original by Matchbook Twenty. Check it out below.

And here is the original music video for comparison.

The music video similarities aren’t anything new; Neck Deep did the same thing on the past Songs That Saved My Life compilation.

Just like last year, the compilation is abundant with big names. Some of the most notable acts are Silverstein, Mayday Parade, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Doll Skin.

Silverstein is covering “Disarm” by The Smashing Pumpkins and Doll Skin is giving their take of “Shake It Out” by Florence + the Machine. Both bands’ announcement tweets can be seen below.

Songs That Saved My Life Vol. 2 is available everywhere Nov. 8 and can be preordered here. The full tracklist is below.
