Saw an email in the inbox that Story of the Year is putting out a new record on March 10th called Tear Me To Pieces. Can you believe Page Avenue came out in 2003! Time man, it flies.

I still fire up “Until The Day I Die” and “Anthem Of Our Dying Day” to this day.

They’ve been sharing a few songs off the upcoming album. We’ve already heard the title track, “Tear Me To Pieces,” along with “Take The Ride” and “Real Life.” Last week they shared a cut called “War.”

I think this album will be a defining moment in our career,” says guitarist Ryan Phillips. “When our fans hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Oh, shit, these dudes are ready to go!’ This is the sound of a band putting everything into it. If a new band came out with this album, I’d be texting everyone in my band about it.”

Dig it SOTY. Taking me right back to my 2000s youth.

Feels good to be blogging again. Music blogs died a long time ago (I think? did they? mine did). I think I’ll bring mine back for a bit. The Morning After rides again.

Go with yourself.

I was feeling nostalgic to hear Story of the Year‘s 2003 record, Page Avenue, specifically “Until The Day I Die.”

I punched up Spotify and noticed there was a 2013 version of the record. I hit play and it was broken down, piano, not-screamo versions of the songs.


That’s cool. Band is still plugging away….recording a new record, seeking pledges, learning how skateboard.  They wrote on their PledgeMusic site,

It’s been 6 years since our last record. We’ve been on a self imposed hiatus for much of that time, and to say it’s been confusing and difficult for all of us is an understatement.

But with darkness often comes great art, and to be certain, the sun always rises. We’re stepping out of the shadows with more passion and energy than perhaps any time in the last decade.”

I alway liked this St. Louis, Missouri band… I remember playing some of their songs on the radio back when I started on modern rock in 2003.

I’m gunna punch up the original Page Avenue now.
