Story Of The Year have shared their newest single and music video ‘War,’ out now via SharpTone Records. With verses that quickly build up to a hard-hitting chorus and wicked guitar riffs, ‘War’ takes listeners on a journey through a cautionary tale of revenge. The accompanying music video is the quintessential Story Of The Year, full of humor and personality, featuring the guys putting on the acting performance of a lifetime.
“’War’ is about a person hellbent on getting revenge and ultimately finding no peace in the process,” shares guitarist Ryan Phillips. “Lyrics like ‘this game will kill you in your sleep’ directly refers to the mental toll of trying to get revenge on another person: it winds up consuming you and ultimately destroys any your life and any chance of a present, balanced existence.”
Yesterday, the band also announced a hometown release show for their upcoming 6th studio album ‘Tear Me To Pieces,’ taking place on March 11th at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri. Tickets are on sale Friday, January 20 at 10am CT. For more details and tickets, visit http://www.storyoftheyear.net/tour.
‘Tear Me To Pieces’ is set for a release on March 10, 2023, via SharpTone Records. The new album is distinctly, invitingly, loudly Story Of The Year. Heartache, desperation, motivation, toxic relationships, pain, loss, anger – all of the essential ingredients of the classic Story Of The Year sound propel ‘Tear Me To Pieces’ in dazzling new ways. The new album features previously released singles ‘Real Life,’ ‘Tear Me To Pieces,’ and ‘Take The Ride.’ Fans can pre-save ‘Tear Me To Pieces’ HERE.
“I think this album will be a defining moment in our career,” says Phillips. “When our fans hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Oh, shit, these dudes are ready to go!’ This is the sound of a band putting everything into it. If a new band came out with this album, I’d be texting everyone in my band about it.”
