ABSOLUTExclusive & Too Long; Do Read: The Wonder...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (04/17/12)
Today we are excitedly teaming up with our friends in The Wonder Years and Stay Ahead of the Weather, along with Hopeless Records, to bring you a brand-new song stream from each band. The songs make up the Punk Is Dead. Get A Job. split, which comes out April 24. Head here to listen to the songs or check the replies, which accompany my Too Long; Do Read article for April -- entitled If You Get A Chance To Win, Take It, the article traces how The Wonder Years have grown steadily from the release of The Upsides to their first "big-boy headliner" on the GK Tour. It also talks about haircuts and tattoos. Leave your thoughts on the article and, of course, the new songs in the replies.
From the ArticleIn fact, that growth has led to a point in time where there is another movement among the band’s older fans. They’ve reached the point that many bands reach where getting called sell-outs and being criticized for their popularity is commonplace. Signing to Hopeless Records? Sell-outs. A t-shirt in Hot Topic? Who are you, Nickelback? Having a driver on a tour? Lazy bums. The Wonder Years are no longer just your band – that band you told your best friends about but never wanted to tell everyone about. You didn’t need to tell everyone…they already found out for themselves.

Campbell puts it into perspective more eloquently than most. “A lot of times when a band gets to a level of popularity and you start to see that fucking kid you hated in high school wearing their T-shirt, kids are like, ‘But no, that’s my ba – oh fuck it, fuck this band,’” Campbell says. “And I can’t blame them, I did it too.”

Just another piece of the progress.

Everyone listen to that bridge in the TWY song and lose it. That SAOTW song is the best SAOTW song so far. Great split.

Woah. Some seriously different stuff in that TWY track. But that's progress, and I enjoy that.

Two really great songs there. I'd actually not heard of Stay Ahead of The Weather before but I want to hear more from them for sure. The article is really great too! Insane to see how far TWY have come in a pretty short space of time. I always appreciate what this band have to say, they've always been so down to earth and clearly know how it feels to be a fan too.
