Story of the Year prove they know how to do-up acoustic reinterpretations the right with slimmed down, yet jazzed up, renditions of their two tracks--their first single Until the Day I Die, and album opener, Anthem of Our Dying Day--which both sport unexpectedly light piano, a totally reworked tempo, and the best vocal work that singer Dan Marsala has recorded to date.
The track comes off the band's forthcoming Page Avenue: 10 Years and Counting, which--as the title suggests--celebrates the decade anniversary of the original Page Avenue. The album drops on Oct. 8.
Story of the Year showed up on the scene back in 2003, with their debut album Page Avenue, a modern classic that showcased the best genre-blending of punk, pop, hard rock, and just the right amount of post-hardcore.
Jump ten years later and, although the group's released three follow-ups, Page Avenue, remains the groups seminal effort - and a fan favorite by a long shot.
