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...
