Neck Deep set to return in Manila this September

This September, kids will once again have a reason to sing, rejoice and jump in the pit because Pulp Live World is bringing back one of the most energetic and infectious bands that has graced our shores.

Though the proverbial saying is that the third time’s a charm, there’s absolutely no denying that Welsh pop punk outfit NECK DEEP have consistently brought the goods and exceeded all expectations of their loyal Filipino fans throughout the years. With fast-paced rhythms, humongous choruses and anthemic tunes that have seemingly become the soundtrack of their ever-growing fanbase here in the country, the five-piece punksters – consisting of vocalist Ben Barlow, guitarists Matt West and Sam Bowden, bassist Seb Barlow and drummer Matt Powles – promise an unforgettable experience as they deliver nothing but “Beautiful Madness.”

Formed in Wrexham Wales in 2012, the band – which started out simply as a fun project that supported similar artists in the UK – rose to international acclaim after years of hard work on the road, touring the United States and ultimately, landing spots on the Vans Warped Tour in the US. Influenced by groups like Blink-182, New Found Glory, Green Day and The Descendents, the group combined a modern flavor and their trademark sincere lyricism and won-over fans of the genre in no time. Currently, Neck Deep has four studio albums under their collective belt, namely their 2014 debut Wishful Thinking, 2015’s Life’s Not Out To Get You, 2017’s The Peace and The Panic and the 2020 release All Distortions Are Intentional.

And just this year, the band released two fiery singles that fans completely dug: the race-to-the-finish “Heartbreak of the Century” (released in February) and their most recent “Meet You There 2.0” a collaboration with UK pop-punk outfit Busted, released last May. Two more reasons to get hyped and tell all your friends.

So there is no need to ask “Where Do We Go When We Go?” because Neck Deep goes full circle as they return to the same venue they’ve played both in 2016 and 2018: The Skydome at SM North Edsa. The show happens on September 22nd, 2023, but diehard fans will be stoked to know that tickets go on sale as early as July 31st through SM Tickets outlets nationwide and can be purchased at

So don’t miss out on this highly awaited pop-punk spectacle – you know it’s “Worth It!”
