The Wonder Years have had a busy year of touring, currently starting off a European tour before returning to the states for a few acoustic holiday shows. Even with the schedule of touring, The Wonder Years managed to crank out a music video for the song “There, There” from their 2013 release The Greatest Generation. The song is a heartfelt punk ballad sung by frontman Soupy in order to say one thing: “I’m sorry”. A somewhat short track holds the message of a simple apology, and the powerful instrumentation shows how powerful the moment is. The Wonder Years are set to return to West Chester on December 12th for a sold out acoustic holiday show at The Note. Check out the music video below, and to catch up on The Wonder Years culture, check out this piece on Buzzfeed.


The Wonder Years premier new song at Alternative Press, announce Pop Up Shop festival on Market Street

WonderYearsBig-name Philly pop-punk five-piece The Wonder Years announced a Pop Up Shop festival of sorts to debut The Greatest Generation – their fourth studio album due out on May 14th through Hopeless Records. Curated by the band and Glamour Kills Clothing, it will be a literal shop opening on 307 Market Street for fans – or simply passers by in the neighborhood – to be treated to acoustic sets by the band and their friends, as well as food, signings, movies, and merch that The Wonder Year’s tumblr says, “will never be produced again.” So that’s awesome. Shop hours are from 2 to 6:30 p.m., and the event hours are from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Fuel for fun.

In addition to the band’s mercantile plans, tracks from the new album have begun to surface. Today at Alternative Press, a new cut called “Dismantling Summer” premiered. You can check it out here, and watch a lyric video for “Passing Through A Screen Door” below.


The Wonder Years releasing new album, headlining spring tour

WYThese Philadelphia natives have come a long way since their No Sleep debut six years ago, evolving from a small time buzz-magnet to a full-grown touring machine. After three very successful full-lengths and countless splits and EPs, The Wonder Years announced last week that they will be releasing their fourth studio full-length, The Greatest Generation, on May 14. The new album will be backed by a spring headlining tour with Fireworks, Hostage Calm and Misser, followed by a headlining slot on the entire Vans Warped Tour this summer. The spring tour wraps up with a sold-out show at Wilmington’s Harmony Garage on March 29th. (Don’t worry, they’ll be back for Warped Tour in Camden this summer on July 12th). Below, watch them perform “And Now I’m Nothing” at The Met Cafe in Pawtucket, RI on March 9th.
