Pop-punk heroes Neck Deep have recently announced a new tour set to hit the UK January and February 2015 which has been aptly titled ‘The Intercontinental Championships‘. Not only that but the supporting acts have also been revealed as Knuckle Puck (USA), Seaway (Canada) and Trophy Eyes (Australia), all of whom will be playing their first UK shows.
This will be the first tour since the band launched their debut album, Wishful Thinking, earlier this year – a sign of just how fast the band is rising, both in the UK and overseas. Wrexham’s own have already performed multiple sell-out tours in the US and Australia already, as well as a highly successful first year on the renowned Vans Warped Tour this summer.
Commenting on the upcoming tour, singer Ben Barlow had this to say:
“It’s gonna be sick! All 3 support bands are friends of ours, so for us it will be triple fun. And for the fans, I know they have been waiting for all 3 of these bands to make their way to the UK, so we’re really stoked to be able to make that a possibility. Overall it’s all gonna be lots of fun; as is usual with us, it won’t be a very serious affair…lots of fucking around and good times. So basically, come down to a show and be a part of it, catch some awesome bands and have a rad time!”
While bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans added:
I’ve never been this excited for one of our tours. It’s the first time we have really put our minds together and pooled our ideas to try and create something really special for fans to be a part of, rather than just playing the same old show. We have really tried to think outside the box and create a real stage show this time. The nights are going to be full of surprises and it’s going to be something for people to be a part of and not just watch. Going to be a tour to remember.”
