Neck Deep US Headlining Tour
UK theatrical-punk band, Creeper, kick off a night full of horror punk and pop-punk music. Their debut album, Eternity, In Your Arms released last year. The band was Vevo’s choice as one of their Ones to Watch for 2017.
You could feel the excitement in the room as the crowd waited for Neck Deep to take the stage. Speak Low If You Speak Love is the side project of Ryan Scott Graham the bassist for pop-punk band State Champs. During their sound check, the band entertained the crowds by playing some Third Eye Blind, Blink-182, AC/DC, and even sang Happy Birthday to a fan. Ryan Scott Graham sings to the crowd with his angelic voice. The band played a mix of old and newer songs including “Contrast and Colors” off their new album ‘Everything But What You Need,’ released last week. And they ended their set with “Knots”.
Seaway take the stage opening with fan favorite “Slam”. The crowd singing as loud as they can, “Everything is cool man!” Seaway played hit singles like “Apartment” and “Something Wonderful” off their new album ‘Vacation’.
During the bands third song, “London”, security failed to catch a fan crowdsurfing. The bassist, Adam Shoji, ran across the stage to make sure the fan was okay and told the security to be sure to do their job.
The band continued with the crowd’s full support, they jumped and sang along. The band closed with a massive amount of energy with their single “Lulu On The Beach”.
The energetic Welsh pop-punk five-some, Neck Deep explode onto the stage with their first song, “Judgement Day”. The crowd goes insane, screaming along to the lyrics right along with frontman Ben Barlow as he sings. The song really sheds some light on the current social and political climate. As their set continues, you can really see the significance the music has on Neck Deep’s fans.
“Motion Sickness” propels crowdsurfing bodies towards the barricades, raining into the arms of security staff. Seaway’s bassist, Adam Shoji, and other Seaway and Neck Deep touring crew members joined the security team to catch crowdsurfing fans to make what happened during Seaway’s set, didn’t happen again.
As Neck Deep continued to play, they continued with the first song they ever wrote, “What Did You Expect”. As the bands plays, guitarists Matt West and Sam Bowden perform whirlwind spins continuously. Drummer Dani Washington bangs on his drum kit with a precise fury. The crown singing loudly, loving every second.
Introducing their next song, “Parachute”, Barlow hoped that it would inspire the fans to want to see the world and broaden their horizons. As the song starts, a sea of cell phones and even a single lighter shoot into the air.
The drummer from Seaway, Kenny Taylor, joined Barlow on stage for a song. Afterwards, Barlow stands alone on stage to play a beautiful acoustic rendition of “Head To The Ground”. Followed by singing of lost loved ones during “Wish Your Were Here”. The band finished with a bang for their encore with “Where Do We Go”. The crowd went insane!
