It's a shame, for fans' sake, that this isn't a longer tour, as the strong line-up fits well together, but I'm happy to have been able to see it. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait another two years before Blink 182 tours the country again, because they remain one of the most fun live shows.
In an interview earlier today with Alan Day (Four Year Strong, The Here and Now), we have confirmed that Four Year Strong is not breaking up, going against many rumors flying around earlier today. In the interview, which you can read here, we spoke to Alan about his new project, The Here and Now, which has a new EP called Born To Make Believe Part I available now for name-your-own-price download via Black Numbers. He told us that his upcoming tour dates would be played with a full band for the first time and also discussed influences and the writing/recording process.
There's no real plans with Four Year Strong right now. Like...we are not breaking up, and that's what a lot of people...
Black Numbers has signed The Here and Now (Alan Day of Four Year Strong). His debut EP, Born To Make Believe Part 1, is now available as a name-your-price download on bandcamp, and a vinyl release is forthcoming.
Last night on the last date of the AltPress Tour, members of The Swellers and other bands stole Four Year Strong's encore and played "Wasting Time (Eternal Summer)" before FYS could make it back to the stage. Head to the replies to check out the video, which ends with most of the tour singing along together on stage.
Head here to check out Four Year Strong performing an unreleased song from their upcoming record, In Some Way, Shape or Form, called "Fairweather Fan." Worthy of note: the song has a reference to Rise Or Die Trying in the bridge.
In a new issue of Rock Sound Magazine, Four Year Strongreveal that their future didn't look too bright at points during the In Some Way, Shape or Form process. The full interview is only available in the print magazine, but this quote was offered:
