The Wonder Years ‘The Upsides’ news!

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/

A full U.S. tour with Four Year Strong this fall awaits these soldiers of the road. Not to mention a stint with pop-punkers New Found Glory later this month, before they head down under. Full tour schedule can be found here http://myspace.com/thewonderyears.

The Wonder Years – US / UK Tours

The Wonder Years hit the road today for two weeks worth of shows throughout the East Coast and Southeast, otherwise known as the Spring Break ’97 Tour. Joining the band will be I Call Fives.

The Wonder Years is touring in support of their latest release from No Sleep Records, a 7-inch split with Birmingham, England’s All Or Nothing titled Distances.

Truly a transatlantic effort, Distances was born from the friendship forged and experiences shared between the bands on their 2007 Hostels & Brothels Tour. The two pop-punk giants will attempt to rekindle those good times beginning July 9th in the UK for the aptly named Hostels & Brothels Tour Part Deux.

In related news, The Wonder Years’ front man and lyricist, Dan Campbell, recently published a 28-page of poetry and short stories titled Paper Boats, or Some Poems I Wrote. The book represents almost two years of the author’s life and deals with a variety of subject matter, from the death of a close friend to hit singles by Devo and just about everything in between. The first pressing is limited to 200 hand-numbered copies and features the artwork of James Heimer. Pick up a copy from No Sleep here.
