In Celebration of the 10 Year Anniversaries of The Upsides and Suburbia, I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing, we’ve put together a comprehensive, 4xLP box set complete with new art from the original artists, Mitchell Wojcik and James Heimer, new songs in the style of the original recordings, b-sides, demos and a 32-page book filled with essays, original illustration sketches and never-before-seen photos. We have 1500 exclusive copies in a beautiful galaxy variant, never to be printed again.
The Wonder Years will release Burst & Decay (Volume II) on February 14th. Today they’ve shared the acoustic version of “Washington Square Park” to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of The Upsides. Pre-orders are now up.
ReRed is a collaboration by 19 artists to pay tribute to the crossover hitmaker Taylor Swift’s instant classic album Red.
All proceeds will go straight to Equal Justice Initiative (www.eji.org) an incredible organization working to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality.
I think it let us understand the goals of making something like this more. We didn’t want to just play the songs on different guitars and call it new; we really wanted to work to reinvent them. We wanted to find interesting ways to subvert expectation and keep you on your toes a little while still remaining pretty true to the original version which is a fine line to walk but a fun one.
The Wonder Years have announced some new tour dates.
