Interview with Alan Day: FYS Are Not Breaking Up, Info on The Here...

Posted by - 10:25 PM on 04/11/13
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 seem to think. But, you know, just because we haven't been in your city three times this year already doesn't mean that we're not a band anymore. We've just been taking it easy for the first time in about five years. We've done 200-plus shows per year for so long that we just decided to take it easy for a bit. ... We're just taking a...I don't wanna say we're taking a break, because people will think it's a hiatus. It's not even anything like that. We're all just hanging out.

Great news. Even this band's last record, which took forever to grow on me, was a pretty solid listen.

I think its just because its getting to that point when people are expecting them to start talking making a new record, and I'm pretty sure they haven't toured the US since last summer

Good to hear. I didn't think their last album was that bad. Interested to see where they go from here.

Contrary to popular opinion, In Some Way, Shape or Form was one of my favorite albums of 2011. Hopefully they come back strong when they do make another record.

I don't know about you guys, but I trust Ryan Rockwell more than Alan Day. I mean, Ryan also has a beard, he must be a member.

Well that's at least good to hear. Hoping they can bounce back with something amazing. ISWSOF was probably the most disappointing album of all time for me. I consider EOTW to be in my top 10 favorite albums ever.
i wrote this band off when they kicked out their keyboardist like yesterday's garbage just because they "wouldn't need him anymore". you just don't do that to somebody
