Story Of The Year share new album ‘Tear Me To Pieces,’ drop video for ‘Afterglow’

Story Of The Year have released their long-awaited sixth studio album ‘Tear Me To Pieces,’ out now via SharpTone Records. Featuring eleven new tracks – including previous singles  ‘Real Life,’ ‘Tear Me To Pieces,’ ‘Take The Ride,’ ‘War,’ and ‘2005,’ – 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.

“I think this album will be a defining moment in our career,” says guitarist Ryan 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.”

Alongside the album, Story Of The Year have released a new music video for ‘Afterglow,’ which can be seen below. ‘Afterglow’ is one of the most meaningful songs on the record for me. It’s basically a letter to my kids. It’s a song about how no matter how dark things might get, they will always be my light. They are the ‘perfect afterglow,’” says vocalist Dan Marsala. “The line “I can barely feel the pain when I’m staring at you” was one of the first lines written for the record. It kind of set the tone for how personal I wanted the lyrics to be on this record. I’m still one of the most meaningful and deepest lyrics I’ve ever written.”
