January 25th marked the opening night of Neck Deep's headlining tour, named after their self-titled newest album. The album, "Neck Deep" released just a week prior, leading to the live debut of many new songs such as "Sort Yourself Out" and "This is All My Fault". The pop-punk band, consisting of members Ben Barlow, Matt West, Sam Bowden, Seb Barlow, and Matt Powles brought their electric stage presence, colorful lighting, and crowd-surfing fans to Nashville’s Marathon Music Works. Creating a safe space and freedom of expression for all, Neck Deep proved that we do in fact, need more punks.
