The Wonder Years announce TRAVELING HANK CONTEST!

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 ‘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.

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.

Holiday Shows
