Neck Deep announced the tour in early August and since then, Neck Deep's third album, The Peace and the Panic, has been the most successful Neck Deep album yet. The band landed in the top 10 with their third album, hitting No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The band earned 32,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 24, and of that, 29,000 were from traditional album sales. 

The current AP cover stars’ last album, Life’s Not Out To Get You, reached No. 17 on the Billboard charts. Plus, The Peace And The Panic also happens to be the highest charting effort for Hopeless Records in two years.

In issue 351, we caught up with frontman Ben Barlow to talk more about the story behind the new record and how it differs from their 2015 release Life's Not Out To Get You.

“When we were writing Life’s Not Out To Get You, we were going through a period of uninterrupted happiness. We were super-content, but as that album came out, life changed for us,” Barlow says. “Over the two years we’ve toured that record, so much has happened that I’ve re-evaluated what life is about and questioned whether just having a positive outlook is enough.”

And now the boys in Neck Deep have revealed who will be joining them on their upcoming U.S. tour in 2018 on their social media.

That's right, Speak Low If You Speak Love will be supporting Neck Deep on this amazing tour. Speak Low If You Speak Love, the solo project of State Champs bassist Ryan Scott Graham, will also feature a full band along with songs from his new album.

How excited are you for Speak Low to join Neck Deep? Let us know in the comments!
