Neck Deep has announced a special run of U.S. acoustic in-stores and signings in support of the release of their highly anticipated album, The Peace and The Panic, due out August 18th via Hopeless Records. Fans who pre-order the album directly from the store will receive guaranteed entry to the acoustic set and signing. Limited space is available. The participating stores include Looney Tunes in West Babylon, NY, Gallery of Sound in Wilkes-Barre, PA, F.Y.E. in Philadelphia, PA, Sound Garden in Baltimore, MD and Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ.
The upcoming 11-track album, produced by Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, Paramore), is a meditation on the constant duality of life and the struggles that come with it. It comes blessed with an acknowledgement that seizing the day and having a laugh with your mates is important, but so is the personal growth that comes with pain and existential crisis. This album will show a duality of sounds, which carries through to the various PEACE and PANIC pre-order bundles, now available at https://neckdeep.lnk.to/

Neck Deep gave fans a double dose of new music with their first two song and video releases from this album earlier this summer. Featured on numerous Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon playlists, along with numerous radio spins and features on Sirius XM, “Where Do We Go When We Go” and “Happy Judgement Day“ reflect both the ‘Peace’ and ‘Panic’ sides of a coin that constantly spins across the album’s 11 tracks. ‘Where Do We Go When We Go?’ sees Barlow and his band wrestling with mortality, but recognising that ‘There’s a world full of possibilities / and a million people just like you’ whilebacked by the sort of infectious bounce and major-league chorus that we have come to love and expect from them. ‘Happy Judgement Day’ meanwhile is all spidering riffing and wide-eyed terror at the brutal and reckless nature of a society edging ever closer to the apocalypse. The best bit of all: both songs sound unequivocally like Neck Deep on the top of their game.
Most recently, the band released the song and video for “Motion Sickness,” which perfectly exemplifies Neck Deep on and off the stage, documenting some highlights from the recording process in Southern California. The video gives you a “day in the life” vibe from Neck Deep as the band spends time on Venice Beach skateboarding, visiting Disneyland and live footage from their recent performances headlining Slam Dunk in the UK.

For Wrexham pop-punks Neck Deep, the trajectory of the last half decade has been, seemingly, one of unbridled success. Comprehensively the most successful British band in the history of their genre, and with an average age of just 23, they have risen – at a pace so head-spinning it nearly snapped necks – to become the zeitgeist capturing band of their generation and scene. They’ve scored Kerrang! and Alternative Press awards along the way, completed two summer-long stints at Warped Tour to unprecedented crowds, worked alongside legends like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and completed a 2016 headline world tour of their own which took in some 15 countries across 4 months and sold in excess of 52,000 tickets.
The truth, as anyone who has even a little experience will tell you, is that when life takes away it also gives – in self-confidence, in conviction and in a galvanized dedication to expressing what lies inside you in the very best way you can. Neck Deep are here to prove that, and a whole lot more besides.
Neck Deep is Ben Barlow (Vocals), Matt West (Guitar), Sam Bowden (Guitar), Fil Thorpe-Evans (Bass and Vocals) and Dani Washington (Drums).
