Neck Deep Have Launched Their Own App And Unveiled A New Band Member
Well, Neck Deep certainly didn’t keep us waiting too long for some big news, did they? Having teased that an announcement was coming earlier in the week, the Wrexham gang have now not only launched their very own app, they’ve also unveiled a member change.
Frontman Ben Barlow’s brother Seb is officially a part of the Welsh quintet now, having been heavily involved in all things Neck Deep anyway, as well as being a prolific producer in his own right. As his website states, he’s “produced, mixed and grown with over 50 pop-punk, pop-rock and hard rock artists in 10 different countries”, while also working behind the scenes on “brand identity, album campaigns, release strategies, marketing strategy, social media management and helping them connect the dots and grow their team”. Basically, he really knows his shit. Congrats, Seb!

As well as the new line-up change, Neck Deep have launched their very own snazzy app, announcing it with the following statement: “We know we’ve been quiet, but the hibernation season is over. We are so excited to reveal a whole world of news very, very soon, but first of all, we want to let you know that the official Neck Deep App is live and ready to download now.”
Bring. It. On.
If you download the app, you’ll see that Neck Deep are inviting fans to something called Sonderland at the Camden Stables in London from February 28 – 29. We’re not even going to pretend to know what that word means, but one fan did tweet the band with the meaning of ‘sonder’, and it sounds pretty intense.
Exciting stuff. Check out the new Neck Deep app here.
