The Wonder Years
I Don't Like Who I Was Then

Paul Stimpson, Features Writer

Pennsylvania six piece The Wonder Years certainly know how to keep their fans hungry for more.

Their upcoming album No Closer To Heaven is released on September 4th via Hopeless Records and is perhaps the most anticipated release of their career.

The hype is at fever pitch now, with fans begging the band to release the record early on their social media accounts.

The reason for this is the three magnificent tracks the band has released as singles this summer. Cardinals and Cigarettes and Saints are anthems in their own right, but this week The Wonder Years have unveiled yet another beauty from the album.

I Don't Like Who I Was Then is a pop-punk classic. Dan ''Soupy'' Campbell sings the wonderfully melancholic track with lyrics that feel lamenting and elegiac despite the uplifting sound.

The music behind the narrative compliments it enchantingly. As always with The Wonder Years, the musical layers are knit together carefully as not to take the attention away from the words of the vocalist.

From what we have heard already, the album is going to be out of this world. No Closer To Heaven is released on September 4th.

The Wonder Years are also heading out on tour in February 2016:
