Ahead of its Friday release, Story of the Year are streaming their upcoming album, Wolves over on Fuse with a track by track breakdown and in depth interview about the album.
Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, New Found Glory, Acceptance) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge & J Hall, their first full-length album since 2010 is a testament of how inspired and committed they are to making their best record yet. Wolves is available right now via Pledge Music and this is the album Story of the Year fans have been waiting for.
Story of the Year fans have been singing along for the past 17 years to hit songs like “Until The Day I Die,” “Anthem of our Dying Day,” “Take Me Back,” “Wake Up” and more. On the recently released single “I Swear I’m Okay,” Billboard shared it “sports the same adrenalized hooks that fans have come to expect from Story of the Year, deftly blending clean vocals and cathartic screams in the song’s climactic final chorus. But the band also expands their sonic palette with vintage synthesizers and electric drums, successfully transitioning the sound and fury of their past into the modern alternative rock arena.” Complementing this praise, Alternative Press premiered the track “Bang Bang,” calling it a “sure-fire crowd-pleaser” and continued on by saying “it’s the perfect way of reminding fans why they fell in love with the band in the first place.”
