The Spin: The Wonder Years are one of the biggest bands in this scene, and it will be very interesting to see what direction they take with this record. They have increasingly distanced themselves from the general pop punk sound with each release they’ve made (a positive move, in my opinion, as they have gotten better with each album), so there is a good chance that this could be an album that is divisive among fans. Either way, this record automatically will jump to several “Most Anticipated” lists for this fall. Is it September yet?
The Question: Where do you think the band will go sonically with this album? Would you rather them keep branching out or stick with their roots?
