AP.net Chat: Dan Campbell of Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties

Posted by - 03:05 PM on 05/28/14
Today we're proud to welcome Dan Campbell, the frontman of The Wonder Years and the brainchild behind the new project Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, to AP.net to chat in this very thread. Hit the replies to talk with Dan about the project and/or whatever you'd like really. If you haven't checked out the first song, "You Ain't No Saint," you can do that here, and you can pre-order the album here.

Update: The chat is now over, huge thanks to Dan for hanging out and answering questions. You can read all of his responses here if you missed the chat.

I guess I'll ask the one everyone was discussing in the other thread, are you opening for Ace on his acoustic tour?

Did you do any particular writing exercises to prepare for writing the lyrics? Short stories or anything?

Hey Dan ! I'm really excited to here the new project (:
& So i was wondering... You said you wanted to push yourself lyrically on this record, so should we expect an entirely different writing style on We Don't Have Each Other than what we normally hear on Wonder Years records?

Hey Soupy! Huge fan. Stoked for the new project, big fan of You Ain't No Saint already. You said in the introduction video that this record is about Aaron West and the worst year of his life. How's that going to translate to the album structure? Is it leaning towards a concept album, or do the songs work as standalone tracks?

So stoked to hear the record! Keep doing what you do <33

Why the Buffalo Bills reference and is that area somehow connected to the larger character picture ?

If I wanted you to read the college statement I wrote about TWY, how would I send it to you?

Hey Dan, the new project sounds amazing!

I was just wondering how you're feeling about playing the Reading and Leeds festivals this year with TWY?
