New Neck Deep Album To Be Produced By Jeremy Mckinnon


Neck Deep have revealed that Jeremy Mckinnon, front man of A Day To Remeber, will be producing their new album alongside ex A Day To Remember member, Tom Denney, and Andrew Wade who has worked closely with A Day To Remember in the past. Jeremy had this to say about the album, which Neck Deep will start to record in five days time: "I was working with Andrew (Wade) on the new The Ghost Inside album (Dear Youth) when Tom Denney stopped by for a bit. He and Andrew were talking about having a meeting with Neck Deep about doing their next album. I overheard them, and pretty much forced them to let me be a part of the meeting. We met with Fil (Thorpe-Evans, bass) and we all hit it off. A few weeks later we heard back that the band had picked us! I think they’re one of the best new upcoming pop-punk bands in the world, and I’m pumped to make some music with them. They have their own sound, and it seems like they’re right on that edge of being a really big band. All it’s gonna take is a slam dunk record. I think they’ve got it in them'

Ben also had this to say: “When we started looking into recording album two we knew we wanted it to be bigger and better than Wishful Thinking. We wanted to step things up in a big way. Not only will we be stepping out of our comfort zone and finally recording outside of Seb’s (Barlow’s brother) bedroom, but we’ll be working with someone we’ve always looked up to. When we initially spoke to Jeremy about producing the album his enthusiasm was what caught us; not only is he someone who knows what they’re doing, and has achieved everything we could hope for, but he’s just as stoked on the album as we are, and that’s a huge thing"

Up and Coming Pop Punk Bands | Get Up Go




Ever feel like your life may be in need of a touch more easycore? Well hold there my friends because we may have the answer. Manchester based pop punks Get Up Go have recently released their EP 'Calm Seas Never Made Good Sailors' which is the perfect blend of pop punk and easycore for your listening pleasure. The band also recently released their first ever music video for the track 'Tonight In Stereo' which you can watch above. 

Check out our interview with Get Up Go and Calm Seas Never Made Good Sailor's below...

WHEN AND HOW DID YOU GUYS FORM?
We got together in Dec 2012. After being in bands together in the past we had not played together for a couple of years. We were all still friends, so when Pommy and Anders started writing music again we decided to start a new band. Sye was the obvious choice to sing and play bass, and Dion was the best drummer we knew.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BAND NAME?
Anders came up with it after quite a heavy night at Pommy's house. After having a little too much to drink and then waking up on Pommy's kitchen floor, with Pommy's girlfriend standing over him looking pretty annoyed. Anders decided it was time to Get Up Go, he tweeted this as he left and later thought it could make a good name for the band.

YOU RECENTLY RELEASED CALM SEAS NEVER MADE GOOD SAILORS, FAVOURITE TRACK FROM IT AND WHY?
Collectively I think our favourite song is probably 'Wolves Amongst Us', when we went in to record it this song was barely a song, we wrote it as we went along, and it turned out better than we could have hoped for.

RECORDING OR PLAYING LIVE?
Recording is fun, seeing something you've worked so hard on come together and having something awesome at the end to show for it. But nothing beats the buzz of playing live and seeing people enjoy your music.

YOU'VE JUST RELEASED A NEW VIDEO FOR TONIGHT IN STEREO, TELL US A BIT ABOUT IT...
It's our first music video, we chose this song because it was kind of a surprise favourite from Calm Seas, we never thought it would sound as good as it does. The song is about partying basically, living in the moment, and worrying about things later, so the video reflects that. It's also got a retro gaming theme to it as well, you see through the eyes of the hero who's doing his best to navigate a party where the band is playing, something that gets him into a few 'sticky' situations.

IF YOU COULD PLAY A SHOW WITH ANYONE ON THE PLANET IT WOULD BE?
A few years ago I would have said  Blink 182 or New Found Glory, those guys are our idols, but now I think we would choose to play with State Champs. They're the new pop punk kids on the block and they are, in our opinion, one of the most exciting band to come along in years.

TOP FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS?
Blink 182 -Take Off Your Pants And Jacket
State Champs - The Finer Things
Brand New - Your Favourite Weapon
Four Year Strong - Rise Or Die Trying
New Found Glory - Self Titled
Sum 41 - All Killer No Filler
I know that's 6 but there you go :)
