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.
