Taking its name from the TV show The Wonder Years, the Philadelphia punk pop band got its start in 2005. The band began playing shows and released two split singles that year (with Bangarang! and Emergency and I). In late 2007, The Wonder Years self-released an album, the emphatically titled Get Stoked on It!, After a year spent recording its second album, the group released The Upsides. The record made a dent in the lower regions of the Billboard charts, and also gained The Wonder Years a deal with the larger indie Hopeless, which reissued the album in September with four bonus tracks. The Wonder Years got to work on their next album with producer Steve Evetts. In 2011, they released their third album, Suburbia I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing, followed by the arrival of a B-sides compilation, Sleeping on Trash, as well as their fourth full-length album, The Greatest Generation, The group’s fifth studio album, 2015’s No Closer to Heaven, is a concept piece about coming to terms with the death of a loved one. The Wonder Years’next release, 2017’s Burst & Decay EP, offered acoustic versions of songs from their three previous LPs.
The Wonder Years will be performing at Revolution Live on May 12, with support from Tiger’s Jaw, Tiny Moving Parts, and Worriers.
