Welsh pop-punk five-piece Neck Deep and three notable sidekicks will play angsty, mosh-pit-prompting music on Sept. 25 at Town Ballroom (681 Main St.). Trophy Eyes, WSTR, and Stand Atlantic round out a powerhouse bill on "The Peace and The Panic USA Tour 2."
Breakthrough effort “A Part of Me" (featuring Laura Whiteside) from Neck Deep’s debut 2012 album, “Rain in July,” tells the modern age-old story of a torrid high school romance. “Life’s Not Out To Get You” (2015) — headlined by “December,” re-released a year later as “December (again) [featuring Mark Hoppus]” — made the band a household name in the pop-punk realm.
Last year’s “The Peace and the Panic”—featuring coming-of-age hit “In Bloom”—proved the band’s willingness to stick to its roots despite maturing as musicians.
PATP USA Tour 1 featured a stop at Anthology in Rochester in February, but no Buffalo date. Let’s hope Neck Deep plays the way-better-than-it-has-any-right-to-be cover of “Torn” the band released a couple of weeks ago. Consider this: lead singer Ben Barlow was 3 years old when Natalie Imbruglia released the original in 1997.
Doors open at 6 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m. for the 16 and older show. Tickets are $22.
