The Wonder Years UK Tour Dates

The Wonder Years have announced some small UK shows for this July.

We know it’s been too long since we’ve really headlined and we’re sorry. Scheduling all of this is hard and with two of us getting married this year on top of all the touring we already had planned, fitting a UK run in has been a challenge, but we decided that isn’t fair to you. So, we’re making it happen. At the end of July, we’ll be coming over for four very special, very intimate shows. We’re playing in small rooms and playing long, ground-covering sets.

The Wonder Years

When Jason Aalon Butler of Letlive. came out howling his incendiary guest vocal bridge on “Stained Glass Ceilings,” I finally realized what I found so fascinating about The Wonder Yearsʼ most recent headlining tour. While the band had been called pop-punk for years now, I had never really thought of them in the same vein as the punk bands of bygone eras. You couldn’t connect The Wonder Years back to the unrest and revolution promised within the words and sounds of The Ramones, or The Sex Pistols, or Black Flag. But in a subversive way, the modern, populist version of punk that The Wonder Years symbolize has finally found its voice. And one could argue that The Wonder Years have planted themselves into the punk tradition of political protest songs.
