Now celebrating their 17th anniversary, Keep A Breast’s relationship with the music industry runs deep. For over a decade they’ve been spreading their message of prevention at the Vans Warped Tour via their Traveling Education Booth; a touring, interactive educational platform that teaches festival goers about breast cancer prevention through living a non-toxic lifestyle.
“We are so stoked to be partnering with Keep A Breast this summer to help support a really important cause that we all care about greatly. We have been close with the Keep A Breast’s team for a long time and really believe in what they do. They are an awesome team of people trying to make the world a better place and we’re proud to be working together this summer for a good cause.” – Fil Thorpe-Evans, bassist of Neck Deep
The #NDLovesKAB fundraiser is a way to create awareness around Keep A Breast’s mission, as well as generate funds for their programs. Looking to the future, the organization will continue creating innovative programming for men and women impacted by cancer with an eye on eliminating cancer-causing toxins in our daily environment – especially those linked to the initiation of breast cancer.
“We want to inspire younger generations to have a different attitude about breast cancer prevention. Our partnership with Neck Deep and the Vans Warped Tour is vital to our success.” – Shaney jo Darden, Founder of Keep A Breast
About The Keep A Breast Foundation:
The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support. Since its inception in 2000, Keep A Breast has worked with young people to remove the shame associated with breasts and breast cancer health. Through various initiatives such as breast cast art exhibitions, the “Non Toxic Revolution” and “I love boobies!” campaign, Keep A Breast has opened up the dialog about breast cancer, and has proven to be a doorway to breast self-awareness and education.
Keep A Breast has grown into the leading global youth-based breast cancer prevention organization, with global affiliates in Japan, Canada, France, UK and Chile. Constantly pushing the boundaries of the pink ribbon status quo, Keep A Breast has always encouraged young people to love their boobies, get to know their bodies and be aware of changes.
Life, as anyone who has experienced even a little of it will tell you, is a series of peaks and troughs; victories and defeats; euphoric rises and disastrous falls. For Wrexham pop-punk’s Neck Deep, the trajectory of the last half decade has been, seemingly, one of unbridled success. Comprehensively the most successful British band in the history of their genre, and with an average age of just 23, they have risen – at a pace so head-spinning it nearly snapped necks – to become the zeitgeist capturing band of their generation and scene.
They’ve scored Kerrang! and APMA awards along the way, completed two summer-long stints on Warped Tour to unprecedented crowds, worked alongside legends like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and completed a 2016 headline world tour of their own which took in some 15 countries across four months and sold in excess of 52,000 tickets. Moreover, their second full-length album ‘Life’s Not Out To Get You’ smashed its way into the top 10 of both the UK and U.S. album charts and has shipped more than 150,000 copies worldwide to date. It both catapulted the the band to the front of the pack and effortlessly captured the essence of what problem free young adulthood is all about in the way only truly great pop-punk can.
Neck Deep’s third album – the philosophically entitled ‘The Peace & The Panic’ is a meditation on the constant duality of life and the struggles that come with it. It comes blessed with an acknowledgement that seizing the day and having a laugh with your mates is important, but so is the personal growth that comes with pain and existential crisis.
