Formed in early 2014, Neck of the Woods’ exhilarating brand of progressive metal and charged live shows have quickly earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Vancouver's metal scene. The group’s complex and dynamic sound along with their resonating live performances helped the band quickly rise to prominence.

Following the release of their self-titled EP in 2015, they took to the road making appearances at multiple Canadian festivals including both Calgary and Armstrong Metalfest. Summer 2016 saw them accompany metalcore legends Misery Signals on the Canadian leg of their 2016 tour as well as embarking on a headlining tour of Western Canada. It wasn’t long before they caught the eye of U.K label Basick Records who welcomed them to their roster in Spring 2017.

Their debut album 'The Passenger', released September 15th, 2017, sparked candid debate amongst metal critics across the globe; its diverse sound defies categorization while delivering a blend of an aggressive attitude, emotive expression, progressive intellect, and modern fair. Performing in support of major touring acts has become a well-rehearsed routine for the band. From warming the stage for Converge at Sled Island Music & Arts Festival to directly supporting Every Time I Die, the group has established themselves with a high energy performance that is not to be missed. The band spent the majority of 2018 on the road, kicking things off with a six-week North American tour that included debut performances in New York, Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Shortly thereafter the group embarked on their first tour of the West Coast, they’ve continued to tour regionally on a regular basis ever since.

2019 began with Neck of the Woods receiving a nomination for “Heavy/Hard Artist of the Year” by the Western Canadian Music Awards. In March of 2019 the band returned to Rain City Recorders to work with Jesse Gander on the recording of their album 'The Annex of Ire' which was released via Pelagic Records in March 2020.

"The feeling of ambivalence is something we deal with every day of our lives. Be it a small lingering of uncertainty or a relentless mental battle that derails your life we all experience it. This song focuses on my own indecision to exact revenge on someone who wronged me, repeating a mantra I don't honestly believe in but felt strongly in the moment. Fuck the high road was cathartic thing to write though its not a path I feel many should follow."
