Neck Deep confirm 2016 world tour

Neck Deep have announced the biggest UK headline tour of their career so far.

The pop punk outfit will play five dates in February of next year, with support from State Champs, Creeper and Light Years. Neck Deep issued second album Life’s Not Out To Get You in August.

Neck Deep frontman Ben Barlow says: “These UK dates will be awesome. It’s going to be the first time we get to play a lot of material from LNOTGY live on our home turf, and we are super stoked on the supports.

“The State Champs boys are good friends of ours, and ever since we last toured together have been itching to get out on the road together again. Creeper are one of the UK’s best up-and-comers, and Light Years are a massively underrated band that everyone needs to 100% make sure they get down early to see.”

The band’s guitarist Lloyd Roberts quit in August and has taken legal steps to clear his name following a series of online allegations.

Tickets for the tour go on pre-sale on October 7, and general sale on October 9 at 9am. The UK dates are part of a wider world tour.
