How often do you look at your gig guide, wondering why there’s a distinct lack of pop-punk playing live shows whenever you want to see a show? Well, your prayers have been answered, with a huge pop-punk lineup featuring Neck Deep, Stand Atlantic, Between You And Me, and Stateside touring the country later this year.
Yes, barely two months since they were last in the country to play the inaugural Download Festival and support Good Charlotte on their Download sideshows, Welsh rockers Neck Deep have announced they’re coming back for a headline tour later this year, and they’re bringing a huge array of Aussie acts along with them.
Having released their third album, The Peace And The Panic, just last year, Neck Deep have been riding a huge wave of success, which has included topping the UK Rock and Indie charts, hitting #2 in the US, and scoring a top ten placing on the ARIA charts. Needless to say, this huge act will be making a very welcome return to Aussie shores later this year when they play their first headline shows in almost four years.
Coming along for the ride though will be Stand Atlantic, who released their second EP, Sidewinder, in September of last year. Featuring an honest lyrical approach, and a self-assured sound that has seen the group tour alongside some of the genre’s biggest names, they’re on track to be one of the biggest Aussie rock acts in no time.
Melbourne’s Between You And Me also join the bill, playing all shows except Perth on the upcoming tour, as they get ready to showcase their pop-punk sound that has seen them play alongside The Main, Tonight Alive, Cute Is What We Aim For, and much more. Having signed to Hopeless Records in 2017, Between You And Me are dedicated to making sure as many fans as possible hear their message of positivity and passion within their music.
Last, but not least, Brisbane’s Stateside round out the bill, with their energetic sound being heard by fans all over the place thanks to the group’s support slots with The Wonder Years, Cute Is What We Aim For, Knuckle Puck, and most recently, Simple Plan.
With their most recent EP, Naïve, being released back in 2017, you can be sure that Stateside are going to kick up the energy another few notches when they bring their ferocious live show to stages all over the country on this tour.
