Neck Deep’s “The Peace And The Panic Tour 2” Concert Review

Neck Deep performed at Stereo Garden in Patchogue, NY on Sept. 21, 2018. “The Peace And The Panic Tour 2” had Neck Deep headline and accompanied Trophy Eyes, WSTR, Gardenside, and Stand Atlantic.

I’ve been to this venue when it was called “The Emporium” to see Mayday Parade perform on the Honeymoon Tour in 2014. The venue is in Patchogue’s village which provided a lot of parking. I like the feel once I was inside the venue because it’s very intimate.

Prior to the show, I purchased the campfire bundle that Neck Deep had when pre-ordering my ticket. The pre-order included: a general admission ticket, access to the venue early to attend Neck Deep’s acoustic session around a campfire, an enamel pin for Neck Deep’s Campfire Club, a signed Neck Deep poster, a Q+A with the band, photo session, and early access to merch. This was the second time I met Neck Deep (the first time was in February in NYC, and I blogged my experience.)

The campfire was a cute display of a fake fire and seats for Ben Barlow, Dani Washington, Sam Bowden, and Matt West to sit. For people who ordered the bundle, we all sat on the floor around the “fire” to listen to their sounds. The three songs that Neck Deep played were:

  1. Parachute
  2. In Bloom
  3. A Part Of Me

In between each song, the guys would answer fan questions. I asked them if they began writing the new album, but Ben explained that after their album, they were eager to write again, but they have no set songs written up yet. Getting to see Neck Deep in an intimate way before the show was awesome. I met the guys and took a picture with them and received a pin and signed poster.

After the meet and greet with Neck Deep, I saw John Floreani. We talked about how great The American Dream is and took a photo together. Neck Deep and John Floreani were very nice and humble guys.

During the meet and greet, there are signs indicating that there is no signings happening, but I got lucky and saw Ben after the meet and greet and got my ticket signed!

After exiting the venue and re-entering, I got in the VIP area of the show, and saw all the bands perform. The order the bands went on the stage are as followed: Stand Atlantic, WSTR, Trophy Eyes, and Neck Deep. The only band I have seen live before was Neck Deep. I was excited to see all the opening bands.

Prior to the show, I listened to Stand Atlantic’s song “Lavender Bones” when it was announced that Stand Atlantic got signed to Hopeless Records. I was a bit hesitant at first at the sound, but as the set continued, I really enjoyed seeing the group live.

*WARNING: The rest of this blog contain setlists!

After Stand Atlantic’s set, WSTR performed. WSTR sounds similar to Neck Deep on albums, but WSTR’s vocalist Sammy Clifford has his own unique voice live. What was cool about the show at Stereo Garden was that WSTR was making a music video during the group’s set.

Here is WSTR’s set:

  1. Tell Me More
  2. Crisis
  3. Footprints
  4. Hide Everything Sharp
  5. Featherweight
  6. Silly Me
  7. Eastbound & Down
  8. Lonely Smiles
After the show, I met Sammy outside the venue and took a photo with him. I was talking with him about WSTR’s co-headline tour with PVMNTS and found out the band is staying in the United States in between tours. We also were talking about Identity Crisis. If you have yet to check out WSTR, check them out!!!!!!!

  1. A Cotton Candy Sky
  2. You Can Count On Me
  3. Lavender Bay
  4. Nose Bleed
  5. More Like You
  6. Heaven Sent
  7. Miming The Choir
  8. Chlorine
  9. Broken
  10. Something Bigger Than This
  11. Friday Forever

After an intermission, Neck Deep took the stage. Neck Deep had high energy, and the crowd matched it with huge mosh pits and crowd surfers. Here is Neck Deep’s setlist:

  1. Motion Sickness
  2. Gold Steps
  3. Crushing Grief (No Remedy)
  4. Smooth Seas Don’t Make Good Sailors
  5. Parachute
  6. Torn
  7. Happy Judgement Day
  8. Kali Ma
  9. I Couldn’t Wait To Leave 6 Months Ago
  10. What Did You Expect?
  11. Citizen Of Earth
  12. Don’t Wait
  13. December
  14. Candour
  15. 19 Seventy Sumthin’
  16. In Bloom
  17. Can’t Kick Up The Roots *ENCORE*
  18. All Hype No Heart *ENCORE*
  19. Where Do We Go When We Go *ENCORE*

I was really excited to hear “Torn” on the setlist. I saw the setlist on setlist.fm prior to the show and was excited to see songs were added for the Patchogue show.  The cool thing about the show I attended was the vocalist from Stray From The Path came out and sang during “Don’t Wait.” What I love about going to see Neck Deep is that the crowd’s energy was intense and vivacious. If you have yet to see any of the bands on this tour be sure to check each of them out! This tour is NOT one you should sit on! If you are interested in seeing Neck Deep on tour, tickets and tour information can be found here.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
