Neck Deep have announced four shows in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Rain In July and A History Of Bad Decisions.

The Wrexham pop-punks will be throwing things back to 2013 for their upcoming August dates, which they tease could possibly be the last-ever time they’ll be honouring their debut compilation. And, to make it even more special, they’ll be joined by the mighty Higher Power for the whole celebration.

“UK! The wait is finally over and you’re up next for the (final?) Rain In July anniversary shows!” Neck Deep announce.

Catch the 10 years of Rain In July shows at the following:


16 Birmingham The Asylum
17 Manchester Rebellion
18 London The Dome
19 London The Dome

Hopefully there’ll be even more to come from Neck Deep in 2023, with frontman Ben Barlow telling us back in February of where things were at in terms of a new album: “It’s coming along well! We’ve got a damn sight more of it written than people have heard, and it’s probably further along than people think. But we’re doing this record a little differently than we have done in the past. So instead of going and doing a full record in four-to-six weeks, and just being there and smashing it out, we’re kind of doing it in short little bursts out in LA, where we’re there for two weeks at a time trying to get a handful of songs, and sitting with those for a bit.

“There’s always a thing of six months after a record is out the artist is sat there going, ‘We should’ve changed that, we should’ve done that…’ We’re trying to alleviate that as much as possible, and give ourselves time to sit with the songs and see how they feel after a month. So while a lot of it’s done, we’re taking our time with it to just make sure that it’s the best we can be. I’m not gonna give any timelines here, but there will be pretty steady releases leading up to it!”
