Neck Deep’s highly anticipated third studio album, The Peace And The Panic, is due out August 18th via Hopeless Records. The 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/TPATP.
The band has released the first two singles and music videos from the album. Fans can watch the videos for “Where Do We Go When We Go” and “Happy Judgement Day” at http://smarturl.it/WDWGVideo and http://smarturl.it/HJDVideo, respectively.
On the album, lead singer Ben Barlow says, “It’s not all ‘Let’s have a party and grab a beer’ this time, but I wouldn’t say it’s pessimistic, just realistic. Trying to make something of your life is a big theme on this record, as is dealing with depression and anxiety. We’ve all found ourselves in the last few years and grown up a bit. I’ve had to do a lot of soul-searching and maybe I’ve been hardened by life a little bit, but I feel ready to take on the world again, just in a different way.” For more information on Neck Deep and their upcoming album, please visit http://neckdeepuk.com/.

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).
