Welsh pop-punks Neck Deep formed in 2012 as the D.I.Y. project of singer Ben Barlow and guitarist Lloyd Roberts. After testing the water with a couple of self-released online tracks, they issued their first EP, Rain in July, in late 2012. Part of the wave of pop-punk revival acts, Neck Deep cited influences like Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory, and Sum 41, offering an updated version of the genre's classic sound. Wanting to expand their capabilities, Barlow and Roberts enlisted friends from the local scene to complete their lineup. Matt West joined on guitar, Fil Thorpe-Evans became their bassist, and Dani Washington joined as drummer. Their second EP, 2013's A History of Bad Decisions, garnered enough attention to bring them to the U.S. for their first international shows, where they caught the attention of several major labels. Neck Deep signed with Hopeless Records in August 2013 and, just a few months later in January 2014, issued their debut, Wishful Thinking. The album was well-received and they spent much of 2014 touring the U.K. and the U.S. supporting bands like We Are the In Crowd and Knuckle Puck, and joining the Vans Warped Tour for a stint. Their sophomore LP, Life's Not Out to Get You, arrived in August 2015. The record garnered widespread acclaim, from both fans and critics alike, with particular praise from Daniel P. Carter of the BBC Radio One Rock Show. After promoting the record on a worldwide tour and a lineup change (Roberts was replaced by Climates and Blood Youth guitarist Sam Bowden) Neck Deep returned with their third studio effort, The Peace and the Panic, in the summer of 2017.
Dine Alone Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Toronto pop-punk outfit Seaway for Canada. Seaway will be releasing their latest album Vacation on September 15, 2017. Vacation is the follow-up record to Seaway’s critically acclaimed 2015 release Colour Blind and marks a progression in sound, while still giving listeners the high energy and well-crafted hooks they have come to expect. Fans can pre-order the album, plus stream and watch the video for new single “Apartment” now at www.seawayband.com.
Of Vacation, vocalist Ryan Locke shares:
“Vacation is a step in a new direction for us. While still holding onto familiar aspects of the band, we definitely explored new destinations for Seaway. It is the best music we’ve written thus far; the record we’ve been working towards for the last 4 years.”
In support of their forthcoming record, Seaway will be touring extensively in Australia and the U.S over the next few months. The band will return to Canada in November to open for Silverstein on their cross-Canada tour. Tickets for the tour are now available to purchase.
Since forming in 2011, Seaway has emerged as one of Toronto’s most significant pop-punk bands to come along. Seaway delivers a brand of pop punk that recalls a time when the genre centered on having fun. Comprised of Ryan Locke (vocals), Patrick Carleton (guitar, vocals), Ken Taylor (drums), Adam Shoji (bass), and Andrew Eichinger (guitar), to date, the band has released three full-length LP’s, three EP’s and has toured extensively in North America and the UK, touring alongside Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, Silverstein and many more.

A horror punk unit based out of Southampton, England, the aptly named Creeper draw inspiration from a deep well of goth, post-punk, and glam rock greats like AFI, Alkaline Trio, Tiger Army, Bouncing Souls, and David Bowie. Founded in 2014 by vocalist Will Gould, guitarists Ian Miles and Oliver Burdett, bassist Sean Scott, drummer Dan Bratton, and keyboardist Hannah Greenwood, the band issued their eponymous debut EP shortly after formation. In 2015 they inked a deal with Roadrunner Records and put out a second EP, The Callous Heart, which was followed by a tour with the Misfits and an appearance at that year's U.K. Warped Tour. A third EP, The Stranger, dropped the following year, and in 2017, Creeper unleashed their full-length debut, Eternity, In Your Arms.
Fusing elements of Evan Weiss-laden melodies with the pop sensibility of Taylor Swift, Speak Low If You Speak Love produces a genuinely new outlook on the cliché acoustic scene. Not only does SLIYSL refuse to cut lyrical corners, but each song is crafted with its own unique identity. With bare-boned and blunt story telling, Graham extends listeners a personal invitation into the melancholy world he calls home. less
