Neck Deep Supporting Blink-182 and Lil Wayne This Summer


Neck Deep have announced they will be direct support for genre-legends Blink-182 and the iconic Lil Wayne on a massive North American tour this Summer. Kicking off on June 27th in Columbus, OH, Neck Deep will be delivering their high-energy stage presence and larger than life performance of hits from their entire career, including the most recent #2 Billboard Charting album, The Peace and The Panic, to fans across the United States. Various pre-sales are happening throughout the week for National Concert Week. All other tickets will be on sale this Friday, May 10th at 12PM Local Time.

On the upcoming tour, front man Ben Barlow shares "Being on this tour with Blink is nothing less than a dream come true. They were the first band I fell in love with. I've seen them live multiple times and been wrapped up in the madness of the crowd. To now be on the other side of that, playing to that crowd... it's just surreal. This is an opportunity we've always dreamed of and we're gonna take it by the horns and make the most of every moment. We may have something special up our sleeves for this tour so keep an eye out for that, and we will see you on the road!"

Even by Neck Deep's now astronomical standards, their third album The Peace And The Panic has been a success of unprecedented proportions, cementing their position as one of rock's hottest young properties and the zeitgeist capturing band of their generation and scene. For a British band with an average age still under 25 to secure a UK #4 and US #2 charting position is an achievement worth lauding on its own, but in fact barely scratches the surface of what the Wrexham crew have delivered in the era of their third full length.

The Peace And The Panic has already exceeded a dizzying 100 million streams on Spotify alone, fuelled by an army of fans who have seen the band headline Australia, Japan, South America, South East Asia, the USA and of course The United Kingdom in the last two years, on tours that have seen multiple sold out shows in legendary rooms including (but very far from limited to) L.A's Fonda Theatre London's Brixton Academy, and New York's Playstation Theatre.

The band have graced the covers of Kerrang!, Rock Sound and Alternative Press across the album cycle, performed at Radio 1s prestigious Rock Week and made their live TV debut on Last Call With Carson Daly. The trophy cabinet keeps growing too, with the quartet picking up Best British Band at Rock Sound's 2017 awards, while stand out single "In Bloom", which has nearly 25 Millionstreams on Spotify and 13 Million views on YouTube, snagged the Best Song gong at 2018s Kerrang! Awards.


Neck Deep also appeared on the recently released compilation album, Songs That Saved My LifeReleased via Hopeless Records and their nonprofit organization Sub City, the album brought together tons of artists who covered songs that were massively influential in their own lives. Neck Deep's cover of "Torn" (originally made famous by Natalie Imbruglia), instantly became a fan favorite and has been added into many set lists around the world because of it. Fans can watch the music video for Neck Deep's cover of "Torn" here:

That the band have achieved all this, and more besides, with an album showcasing their most emotionally resonant and diverse material is testament to their undeniable passion, song-craft and dedication. All of which points to an incredibly exciting future for a band who have found both their voice and the ears of a truly global fan base. And while it might look from the outside like Neck Deep already have the world in the palm of their collective hand - the truth is they're only just getting started.
