“Every venue should have its own dog”: Neck Deep’s U.S. tour, in pictures

Ben: Some crew love! All our crew are close as hell – with each other and to us. Sometimes crew can be a little distant from the band, but we don’t work like that. A lot of our guys have grown with us, some are childhood friends, sometimes they’re from other bands, early days driving jobs, random one-offs, or just by being a good hang.

A good crew is 100 per cent correlated with a good tour. We pretty much never have to worry about any technical or logistical aspects of our show or the tour because these guys are so on it. Not only are they good at their jobs, but they keep the vibes strong and make sure everything’s sweet on – and off – stage.
