Reminder and Sneak Peek: The Wonder Years

Posted by - 03:52 PM on 03/23/13
Just a friendly reminder that Monday at 3pm EST / noon PST, we will be debuting the first song from The Wonder Years' new record, The Greatest Generation. At 6pm EST / 3pm PST, the band will be in the exclusive thread to chat with fans as well. Paired with the song stream will be a lengthy interview I did with Dan Campbell, a tiny portion of which you can read below.
Up until now, I’ve spent my life content in mediocrity, afraid of failure and hiding behind things, just saying, “This is the best I can do.” I made excuses based on where I came from and the defects in my bloodstream. I was hiding behind mistakes I had made in the past. I wasn’t fighting for great, I was content in good, and this is the realization that, to be the man I want to be, I have to stop hiding behind those things and move past all of them. I have to start focusing on where I want to be, how I want to be remembered and being more than I was.

Based on Jason's first impressions, people think it will be either the second or third track, but it's not the one from the trailer.

It's not the trailer song ... which is track 1.

Trailer song might be too special to show off just yet. I honestly might save this preview track for my first playthrough of the album too, dunno yet.

I was thinking of doing this too, saving every song until i hear the album. i just think it will sound more special that way.

The more I read, the more I think I might not want to hear this song yet...might want to listen to the whole thing all at once instead. But I might also be too impulsive and impatient to wait when it is just a click away :)
Either way, I am beyond excited for this. This band means so much to me that I feel almost proud of them in a way...if that makes sense at all.

Pretty much this. The band has a place in my musical heart that maybe three other bands have ever had... but at that point I was 18, kicked to the curb the week I graduated high school, and just moving in to my first wonderfully shitty apartment on one of the liveliest streets in Upstate NY... now I'm 22 and self-sufficient, so it's harder to listen to those records and recapture the same feelings as when that Upsides preorder came in the mail.

Really looking forward to this record, not sure if there's many more admirable people in music than Dan, when it comes to character/integrity.
