After touring their native USA with everyone from Set Your Goals and Four Year Strong through to Crime In Stereo and Reign Supreme, Philadelphia’s The Wonder Years are heading to Australia for the first time this September.
"AMP Magazine called us one of the finest bands to ever grace the genre. Absolute Punk hailed our new record as being an early contender for album of the year. Alternative Press said that if you’ve grown up and care about more than just girls, but still love Say It Like You Mean It (Starting Line), then you should listen to us, but my Grandma just wishes we would curse less. We’re The Wonder Years from Philadelphia and we play pop punk."
Main support on the tour will be provided by Sydney pop-punk hopefuls Heroes For Hire, who are coming off an already impressive start to the year having played at the Sydney leg of the Soundwave Festival, touring nationally with Fireworks (USA) and are also performing at the upcoming Come Together Festival. The band’s debut full-length Life Of The Party also debuted at #4 on the AIR charts upon it’s release.
Rounding out the bill is fellow Sydney-siders Tonight Alive, who will be touring in support of their All Shapes And Disguises EP and Gold Coast kids Skyway, who most recently joined acts as diverse as No Fun At All and House VS Hurricane on the road, as well as supporting Australian punk rock royalty Frenzal Rhomb in Japan!
