American pop-punk band The Wonder Years will be embarking on a UK tour in early 2017 and will stop off at the KOKO in London on February 1st.
Perhaps the definitive pop-punk band of the 2010s, The Wonder Years are well known for their anthemic instrumentals and powerful lyrics, with their trilogy of albums (2010’s The Upsides, 2011’s Suburbia I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing, and 2013’s The Greatest Generation), centered around depression, loneliness and feeling lost, receiving some of the best reviews of the past six years. Their most recent album, 2015’s No Closer to Heaven, received yet more positive reviews whilst charting at number 12 in the US Billboard 200.
Support comes in the form of Canadian punk band PUP who recently stopped by at The Joiners here in Southampton and are riding a huge wave of momentum coming off of their second album The Dream Is Over. Additional support comes from emo-math punks Tiny Moving Parts who themselves are finding a bigger audience after their third album Celebrate, released in 2016.
Tickets are available here – check out the video for their song ‘Cardinals’ from No Closer to Heaven below.
