You forgot to put "hear" between to and the.

Song is awesome by the way.

Been listening to this bad boy for a few days now, it's good stuff. Glad they decided to keep it as a bonus track, I don't know where it would have fit on the album, everything else flowed so well.

I can't find a place in this summer weather to appreciate this album fully. Great track, though.

This has been on PureVolume for a little while now...

I actually submitted the news story for it like a week ago. What's up with that?

In the words of Morrissey...

"Some bands grab you and they never let you go and, no matter what they do, they can never let you down."

One thing I love about The Wonder Years is how deeply personal their lyrics feel, to me. There have been so many references along the way... Arrested Development, Kerouac, Bukowski, New Found Glory... and Sour Patch Watermelon of course

This one has the greatest one... The Movielife and of course Kelly. First tattoo, one of the first bands I really loved... And just when The Wonder Years references couldn't get any more personal to you - there it comes!

Is this supposed to be a demo? The production is weak compared to Suburbia.

I gave these guys a first go with this album and I was blown away. They have reinvigorated my love for pop punk!

*Bedroom. Nick's bedroom.

It's not on the record because we wrote it after we did the record.

Drums were done in Matt's living room. Everything else in my bedroom on a laptop.

I recorded and mixed this while barely being able to hear anything out of my right ear due to an ear infection. I ain't no Steve Evetts.

You don't need a recording studio to sound sweet.

Noticed you guys will be back home in time for the TEN reunion show in September -- PLEASE CAN WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN WITH THE WONDER YEARS???
