A message from The Wonder Years’ frontman Soupy, in efforts for promotion of their new album, Suburbia, I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing, via Hopeless Records…
The Wonder Years
“We’re tired of the same contest over and over again. I’m not interested in anyone emailing us a picture of them with The Wonder Years written on their hand or some shit to win an iPod that I don’t think actually exists in most contests. Instead, we wanted to get creative with it. Hopefully, at this point, if you’re reading this, you’re familiar with Hank. Hank is a pigeon and he hangs out with us. Think of him as a tangible projection of how we’ve always felt about our band, life of the pigeon. He is on the cover of our new record Suburbia, I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing.
We’re sending Hank on a quick US tour. He’s going to appear in ten cities for a few hours at a time. If you follow him on twitter (@HankthePigeon) you will get the scoop on where he’s going to be and when.
Property of Zack is going to be hosting the blog where you’ll get updates from Hank on the road as well as photos, clues, etc. Hank will be twittering clues about his exact location during the time where you need to go and find him. When Hank comes to your town, you’ve got to track him down and say what’s up. You snap a few photos with him and you’re on your merry way with some cool prizes.
The prizes are as follows:
1. The first 4 people to find Hank in each city will receive a copy of the Don’t Let Me Cave In 7″ on orange and clear swirl vinyl. This color is limited to 100 copies and you can ONLY get it by finding Hank. It’s never been for sale and it won’t be until someone needs to pay their rent and flips it on eBay.
2. Everyone that finds Hank will receive and exclusive signed TWY poster featuring scans of the Polaroids we used for the album artwork. Mitch Wojcik took the photos and he’s staggeringly handsome. Trust me.
3. Everyone that finds Hank will be entered to win two guest spots to your date of Warped Tour this year.
That’s the long and short of it. We wanted to do something different that got you out of your computer chair and involved. I hope you have fun with it and when you see Hank, tell him I said what’s up.” – Soupy

The Wonder Years have announced the re-release of The Upsides, the band’s restless diary of growing up, getting out and making the best of what you have. Arriving September 21 in stores and online everywhere, this re-imagined version of The Upsides not only has a new face to it… it also has 4 new tracks that we’re sure you’ll have on repeat. Wanna check out the CD? Watch as Soupy (lead singer) walks you through the new artwork http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F4sF3bIBdo
In addition to the standard CD, we’ve created a very special limited edition fan pack that includes, a Wonder Years lunchbox! Don’t worry, it’s filled to the brim with everything you could possibly need… a Hopeless & Wonder Years button pack, a Wonder Years poster, a very necessary lunch lady shirt, and because we know you deserve it, a hand signed, and numbered suspension notice.
You can find more information on that at http://hopelessrecords.com/thewonderyears/
