SOTY is BackSo...it's been a while, huh? After almost three years of dicking around, changing tires, and pursuing other artistic endeavors, we are absolutely ecstatic to announce that WE'RE BACK. And it just so happens that this reunion falls in line with an important milestone in our careers.

On September 16, 2003, we released our debut album, Page Avenue. It was an album that changed our lives; an album that kickstarted a decade of making music, traveling, and most importantly, sharing our music with countless people all around the world. The constant through all these years has been you, the fans. So for all of the years of support, we have decided to give something back.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the album, we will be embarking on a PAGE AVENUE WORLD TOUR. We'll be playing the album front to back, in its entirety, in addition to some other fan favorites, and a few surprises. It's going to be tight as fuck. It is our goal to take this 10th anniversary tour not only around the USA, but to as many countries as we can, for as many Story of the Year fans as possible. This is our way of saying thank you for 10 years of unforgettable memories and experiences.

In conjunction with the tour, we will be releasing "PAGE AVENUE: 10 Years and Counting", a full acoustic re-imagining of Page Avenue. It's borderline inappropriate to call it an acoustic record, because it's so much more than that. We recorded the album with acoustic guitars, pianos, crazy big drums and really cool, artistic programming and arrangements. It's a really cool take on these songs that mean so much to us. We will have release dates for the album soon.

We're stoked to inform you that we will be announcing the first round of tour dates tonight at 8pm PST!

And finally, we just might have to make you a brand new SOTY record after all of this awesomeness.

We are absolutely stoked. STAY TUNED, as we will announce dates for the 10TH ANNIVERSARY PAGE AVENUE TOUR soon, as well as other awesomeness in the works.

Visit our new website at www.storyoftheyear.net for additional information.

Sincerely,
Dan, Phil, Josh, Ryan, and Adam

I have so much nostalgia for Page Avenue that I'm really curious to hear the acoustic/re-imagined PA album.

I've totally "outgrown" this kind of music, but I'll probably go.

Cool. Still hope this has nothing to do with Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue anniversary like some seem to think..
