Neck Of The Woods Touring North America in Support of “Passenger”

Vancouver, BC’s progressive tech death metallers NECK OF THE WOODS have issued an update of North American tour dates in support of their debut album “The Passenger” released last September via Basick Records. The debut album was recorded at Rain City Recorders and produced by Stu McKillop and the band, with art direction by vocalist Jeff Radomsky and layout design by Kevin Moore at Soft Surrogate. The nine-track offering truly captures the band’s crushing blend of progressive, death-inspired, technical, and groove-laden metal.

Guitarist Dave Carr comments:

“We can’t wait to hit the road and make some new friends. Being from Ontario myself, I’m personally very excited to bring this band back to where I grew up and play the circuit. This is a huge opportunity to get our music out to a whole new fan base, especially with the US dates. We’re ready to hit the road and show everyone what NOTW is all about!”

Vocalist Jeff Radomsky adds:

“We’re all looking forward to playing for a ton of new audiences across Canada and the Eastern U.S.. We’ll be branching into so many new areas, most of which I’ve never traveled to! Save the date, this tour will be one you won’t forget!”

Unrelenting in their live performances, NECK OF THE WOODS have quickly earned themselves a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Vancouver’s metal scene. Making appearances at multiple Canadian festivals (Loud As Hell, Sled Island, Armstrong Metal Fest, Calgary Metal Fest) along with supporting major touring acts such as CONVERGE, EVERY TIME I DIE, MISERY SIGNALS and more, NECK OF THE WOODS have established themselves as a high energy set not to be missed. Their sonic palette is one that is complex, dynamic, and progressive, continuously pounding away at the wall of death.

“The Passenger” is available digitally through Basick Records here and on physical CD through the band’s Bandcamp here.

“This is an assured slab of stylish and progressive extremity from an obscenely talented band with shitloads of potential..” – METAL HAMMER                                    

“Progressive metal outfit Neck Of The Woods have combined deep grooves, technicality and progressive elements and merged them with death metal on their upcoming debut release, The Passenger.” – DECIBEL MAGAZINE

“Their influences come from all over the prog metal spectrum (and beyond), and as such there really is no way to get any more specific. You’ll be tempted to compare them to Opeth, Between the Buried and Me, Soilwork and even Every Time I Die… and then there’s the guitar solo, which some straight up, epic Zakk Wylde shit. And that’s just on this one track from an album of nine.” – METALSUCKS

“Citing bands such as Between The Buried and Me, Opeth, and Gojira amongst their primary influences, the nine tracks which make up The Passenger offer a riveting blend of big riffs, big grooves, and equally big hooks which should readily appeal to fans of similarly Prog/Death-inspired acts like Iron Thrones (RIP) and Black Crown Initiate.” – NO CLEAN SINGING
