The Wonder Years Reveal Release Plans For ‘Burst & Decay Volume II’


Ahead of their upcoming headlining tour with Free Throw, Spanish Love Songs and Pool Kids where they’ll be performing both acoustic and plugged in every night, The Wonder Years have just announced plans to release their second-ever reimagined EP Burst & Decay Volume II.

Detailing the new 7-track release which is set to hit stores February 14th via Hopeless Records, frontman Dan Campbell said, “On the first Burst & Decay EP, we went in with a rough idea of re-envisioning a few old songs and walked out of the studio in love with the process. We were able to breathe new life into songs that had become neglected over the years and give new dimensions to ones that we’d played endlessly.”

“This time,” says Campbell, “we went in knowing exactly what we wanted to do––build new versions of old songs that subvert expectations but remain familiar. We stretched our limits, we got to work with the insanely talented Little Kruta String Quartet, we had a legitimately good time in the studio and we made something we’re very excited to share with you.”
