The Wonder Years and their label Hopeless Records have teamed up with Altpress.com to bring fans a exclusive stream of ‘Coffee Eyes’, a track off the Philadelphia pop punk band’s upcoming third album ‘Suburbia, I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing’, which comes out June 14th. The band will be touring in support of the album on the entire Vans Warped Tour starting June 24 in Dallas, Texas. ‘Suburbia, I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing’ is now available for pre-order at HopelessRecords.com.
Philadelphia’s The Wonder Years have returned with a new album inspired in part by Allen Ginsberg’s 1956 poem ‘America’. The Wonder Years’ ‘Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing’ tells the story of a growing culture of people in America trying to find their place in the world without compromising the beliefs that make them who they are. ‘Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing’, was produced, engineered and Mixed by Steve Evetts at Omen Room Studios, Garden Grove, California.
“Making this record was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences we’ve had as a band,” explains frontman, Dan “Soupy” Campbell. “From putting it together in a cold, dirty basement in the Philadelphia suburbs to getting into the studio with Steve Evetts who is a legend in our eyes, we’ve poured every ounce of ourselves into this and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with everyone.”
‘Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing’ is out June 14th via Hopeless Records.
The Wonder Years documented their trip to Hot Topic to do some Halloween costume shopping. After trying out Ninja Turtle and Spider-Man masks, they decided to be all the characters from Super Mario. Watch the shopping trip highlights via YouTube below.
