For tour dates: http://www.myspace.com/thewonderyears
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 Upsides, the long-awaited, highly anticipated sophomore full-length from Philly’s very own pop punk juggernauts, The Wonder Years, is now available for pre-order. Cruise on over to No Sleep Records to secure your very own copy of this amazing record, which will see an official January 26, 2010 release date.
As a special pre-order bonus, No Sleep is offering an limited-edition 7-inch featuring a brand new, non-album track titled “Leavenhouse. 11:30.” The label has pressed 500 copies of the clear vinyl release, which boasts a screened B-side and can only be obtained with a purchase of the new CD. Furthermore, there are several “Pre-Order Only” package combinations available which include the aforementioned 7-inch, plus an exclusive tee shirt and hoody. For more info and options, go here.
Additionally, all pre-orders will receive a free autographed poster while supplies last. It’s also worth noting that each CD copy of The Upsides contains a code to download three remixed / remastered mp3s from The Wonder Years’ debut album, Get Stoked On It, that will be included on an upcoming collection release titled Six Dudes From The Keystone State.
In related news, The Wonder Years will be playing a few shows after Christmas with Valencia and Crime In Stereo. This of course is just a prelude to the massive amounts of national touring in 2010 in support of the release of The Upsides.
