Story Of The Year are back, and doing what they do best.
Story of The Year are back with some brand new music, and it’s a big one.
It’s called ‘Real Life’ and feels like a combination of everything that has made the band such a staple in the scene over the last two decades.
Emotional builds, huge choruses and melodies made for getting lodged in your head, it’s a welcome return and a reminder of everything that’s great about the band.
Guitarist Ryan Phillips had this to say about it:
“’Real Life’ is the sound of four lifelong friends re-lighting the torch and deciding they want to be a full-time band again.
“Real Life is one of those special songs that just kind of happened. We didn’t sit around for months consciously trying to write a song like this. It just kind of came out. The songs that fight you the whole way are always duds. It’s the ones that come from out of nowhere and almost write themselves that are the best.”
And vocalist Dan Marsala added this:
“Real Life is a return to form for Story Of The Year,” adds vocalist Dan Marsala. “It evokes the same emotion and energy of Page Avenue but with a brand new and exciting feel. It’s a song about the constant struggle of making a relationship work. The ups and downs of being in love. Not every day is full of sunshine, but if you fight through the pain together, you can make it out alive with a smile on your face.”
