This Welsh pop punk band was formed by Ben Barlow and Lloyd Roberts back in 2012. They have had a relatively quick rise in the industry, acquiring a large and loyal fanbase. Barlow and Roberts posted a song, What Did You Expect?, online under their current name Neck Deep. Barlows distinctive and true punk voice combined with Roberts’ talent and ability on the guitar were a perfect mix. The song quickly began to garner attention from the public and those in the industry, and their musical careers were off to a smoking hot start. Shortly after the release of this song, they added 3 members in Matt West, Dani Washington, and Fil Thorpe Evans.
Their current lineup is as follows: Barlow (vocals), Washington (drums), West (rhythm guitar), Sam Bowden (guitar), and Seb Barlow (bass). Roberts and Thorpe Evans have since left the group. They have released a total of 3 studio albums, selling 30,000 copies of their last album. This band has been around for less than 10 years and they have a bright future, starting with their next album that is slated to be released in July of this year. This tour will be promoting and supporting this new album, but they will of course be playing fan favorites such as In Bloom and December. Get your tickets now while they’re cheap!
