Neck Deep And State Champs Announce Tour; Make Pop-Punk Dreams Come True
Only weeks after being announced for this year’s hotly anticipated Unify Festival, modern pop-punk juggernauts Neck Deep and State Champs have decided to combine their powers for a mammoth world tour that kicks off in our fair land this coming January. After hanging around Oz and notching up 11 all-ages and 18+ shows (yes Perth, you too!) the two bands will make their way to Japan before wrapping things up in Neck Deep’s native UK. Let’s just say we’ve got the local pizza joint on speed dial (…uhh, in anticipation).
With State Champs’ eagerly awaited – and dare we say aptly titled – new album Around The World And Back slated for release in just under two weeks, the race for pop-punk album of 2015 is on with Neck Deep’s Life’s Not Out To Get You currently leading the pack. Fam, it’s a good time to be a pop-punk fan.
Have a read of our chat with State Champs’ Tyler Szalkowski about the state of the scene – and how to flourish in it.
Tickets are on sale Thursday October 9th @ 9am.
