Story of the Year stream new album “Wolves”

Story of the Year have officially released a full stream of their newest album, Wolves. In an announcement made last year, the band said “Story Of The Year is alive and ready to fucking destroy everything in 2017,” which the seem to have done with this new record. Being the band’s most emotional and in-depth record, you can find dark themes, fear, regret, and fatherhood all wrapped up in one with this album.

On the topic of the new album, frontman Dan Marsala said:

“Surprisingly it was not at all a nervous process. I didn’t really care if people liked the songs or not, as long as we were into what we were doing. I’ve come to find that I just write music for myself. It’s a very personal thing now. In the past, it was always about trying to win people over and chase a trend. There’s always some reason why you might right shitty music, for a lack of a better term. The older I get, I do exactly what I want. And I write songs the way I want to. I think that will translate and connect with people more anyway.”

Wolves is the band’s first album since 2010’s Constant – the band’s first album coming off of their hiatus.



Music Video: Frank Turner – “I Am Disappeared”

Folk-punk hero Frank Turner has released a brand new music video for his 2011 hit, “I Am Disappeared.” Originally off of his 2011 record, England Keep My Bones, the song has since been re-worked with pianos and a new vocal delivery as part of Turner’s latest release, Songbook.

As Turner puts it, “‘I Am Disappeared’ remains one of the songs in my catalogue I’m most proud of. Somehow the song is still slightly elusive to me, it’s meaning changes in time, and I’m always finding new ways through it.”

The video, mainly comprised of footage from Turner’s 2000th (and coincidentally his biggest US show to date), was shot in Boston earlier this year. You can check it out here.

Songbook was released on November 23rd and serves as a follow up to 2015’s Positive Songs For Negative People, both released on Xtra Mile Recordings / Interscope Records.

Pennywise finish new album, spring 2018 release expected

Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge recently told OC Weekly that the band has finished recording their long-awaited new album, soon to be mixed for a potential spring 2018 release. He stated:

“It’s already done, just waiting for it to be mixed. We have about 15 songs in the can. One of them is called “American Lies,” if you want some inspiration it’s right there, a song Jim wrote and I think you can probably figure out what the song is about from the title alone. We’ve got a raging fast album that I feel like is our best work since Full Circle and Straight Ahead. We’re able to go back to the old school vibe and that’s hard to do. Bands try to go back and recreate their first or second albums and somehow this time we stumbled across an old formula that really worked. It’s aggressive and has a lot of cool lyrics. We’re looking forward to getting it out there around March. We don’t have a title for it yet but we’re meeting this week to put the finishing touches on it and get another one out there for the masses.”

Pennywise’s recent most recent album, Yesterdays, was released in 2014 on Epitaph. The band last released the compilation album, Nineteen Eighty Eight, in May 2016 via Hardline Entertainment.
