Preview: Neck Deep at Avondale House (09/01/14)


The pop-punk 5-piece Neck Deep were formed in 2012 in Wrexham, UK. They consist of Ben Barlow (vocals), Lloyd Roberts and Matt West (guitar), Fil Thorpe-Evans (bass) and Dani Washington (drums). They have so far released 2 studio albums, Rain in July and A History of Bad Decisions, both with record label We Are Triumphant.

The band will be descending upon Avondale House in Bedford Place, supported by ROAM, to play a gig in anticipation of their upcoming album Wishful Thinking, which is set to be released on 13th January 2014 here in the UK and on 14th January 2014 in the USA by Hopeless Records. Tour dates include the O2 Academy, Leicester, Barfly, London and Rock City, Nottingham before the boys move on to storm the US and Canada. It seems that we are blessed here in Southampton, because the gig at Avondale is only £1 – cheers fellas!

Rumours have been confirmed that This Wild Life (Kevin Jordan on vocals and Anthony Del Grosso on guitar) will also be joining Neck Deep at Avondale as part of their first UK tour. It has also been confirmed that the duo from Long Beach, California will be playing their cover of Bring Me The Horizon‘s ‘Sleepwalking’.

The show is likely to be packed out so get down early for the best spot, and keep your eyes open for the full review!
