Neck Deep: Schlagzeuger Dani Washington ist raus aus der Band

Kein böses Blut.

VON AM 10/05/2022

Machen wir es kurz und schmerzlos: Dani Washington alias Dani Abasi, seines Zeichens langjähriger Drummer bei Neck Deep, hat mittlerweile seinen Ausstieg aus der Band verkündet. Der Musiker war seit Beginn des Projekts anno 2012 ein fester Bestandteil der Band und seitdem an allen Veröffentlichungen beteiligt.

Drummer Dani Washington steigt bei Neck Deep aus

Als Grund für den Split nannte er vorrangig neue Projekte, denen er sich widmen möchte – für Neck Deep blieb dafür dann anscheinend nicht mehr genug Zeit.

Immerhin ist man ohne böses Blut auseinander gegangen. Hier sein Statement:


After 10 years of touring the world and growing so much creatively and personally over the years, the time has come for me to move on from Neck Deep.

The most important part about Neck Deep for me really became the connection and community I developed with our supporters. So I would like to truly express to anyone I have met over the years, that I will always keep those memories incredibly close to my heart. And I would love to remain a part of your lives with what I do next.

Moving forward I’ll be focusing all of my energy into drumming, and investing in my own studio so I can write/record and create as freely as I want. I’m also gonna keep everything rolling with my brand RAIN, and you will see me touring again in the future for sure! I’m very excited to get started on some new projects.

I’m looking forward to working with new people in more diverse ways, and feeling comfort just being 100% myself, unapologetically.

That’s how it should always be.

Special shot out to all my black/POC family that have supported me over the years too, I’ll always proudly represent you guys in this scene, that will never change.

So much love for everybody out there who has helped or supported Neck Deep in reaching the point it’s at.

The past 10 years of my life have been and will always be unforgettable.

If you’d like to keep up with what I have in store in the future find me on my socials:


Thank you and see you all soon!

Dani Abasi“
