Neckscars are a new outfit from Downstate New York that play a blend of rock and anthemic melodic punk with a gravelly vocal delivery similar to Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike and the like. The band spent 2020 recording ten fiery, anthemic tracks that make up their debut album, Don't Panic. Teaming up with Sell the Heart Records (US) and Engineer Records (UK), Neckscars will release Don't Panic on June 18th.
In March of 2020, Neckscars entered Nada Studios in Montgomery, New York with Producer John Naclerio and Sean-Paul Pillsworth for their debut full-length recording. Ripping through 8 songs in just three days, the session came to halt in response to the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. The band returned in the fall to tie up loose ends and bring another two songs to the table. Completed with a mastering by Jesse Cannon, Neckscars will be releasing their 10 song debut album "Don’t Panic" in the summer of 2021.
Your first glimpse into the album is a track titled "Jarring" which is a fist-pumping number about improving your health. You can watch the music video for "Jarring" below. The song will be available on digital platforms on Friday, May 14th. In addition to the music video, both Sell the Heart Records (US) and Engineer Records (UK) have launched physical preorders for Don't Panic.
