Rising UK pop punk quintet Neck Deep have revealed that they have signed to Hopeless Records for a worldwide, three album deal.
Home to the likes of All Time Low, We Are The In Crowd, Yellowcard and The Wonder Years, Hopeless Records has an undeniable track record in picking up some of the most exciting and well beloved pop punk and pop rock bands in the world today.
And since Neck Deep first exploded into action with breakthrough single ‘A Part Of Me’ just under one year ago, their rise to the forefront of the UK scene has been seemingly unstoppable, so a pairing between the young quintet and the veteran label is – to quote Neck Deep frontman Ben Barlow – “a perfect match.”
Says Barlow: “Perfect match really isn’t it; an indy label with a strong ethos and message. We feel like we haven’t signed our souls away but are taking a huge step in the right direction. We know that together this is really going to take things to the next step for us as a band; with a label like Hopeless backing you, you know you’re going to be taken care of and treated well. We couldn’t be more stoked on the whole thing, it’s perfect.”
“It’s probably a terribly cliché thing to say, but signing to Hopeless is a dream come true for us,” says bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans of the union, which will see Neck Deep unveil their highly anticipated debut album in the not too distant future; “Being a part of the Hopeless family feels like a real honour; it’s such a massive step in our band’s career. Being associated with such a reputable label and the incredible records they put out has given us a sense of responsibility to live up to these high standards, but we have worked incredibly hard to create a debut album that we feel will match up. We literally can’t wait to release our record and do our best to make everyone proud and continue to maintain their standards of work. We are feeling very positive and excited about the future for our band, and everyone at Hopeless has been incredible in making us feel welcome and a part of the family.”
Neck Deep, completed by guitarists Lloyd Roberts & Matt West, and drummer Dani Washington, will tour the UK with now label mates The Wonder Years in November, perform on the 2013 Warped Tour UK at Alexandra Palace, and will then head out to tour Australia for the very first time! Tickets for all tours are on sale now.
This is truly just the very beginning, hold on to your hats.
