Two and a half years after last album ‘No Closer To Heaven’, The Wonder Years have announced details of a new album. ‘Sister Cities’ will come out on 6th April via Hopeless Records, and will be toured across the UK and Ireland.
In the album teaser video, front man Dan “Soupy” Campbell delivers a monologue on the wider meaning and deep experience of sonder that his band’s new record is aiming to offer to their fans and any other listeners, saying: “It’s a record about distance, or maybe about how little the distance matters anymore. It’s a record about how big we thought it all was and how much closer to everyone we really are. It’s about a trip around the world during a year that felt like everything was crumbling and seeing how humanity towers over boundaries and borders and walls and oceans and languages. It’s about ho we want to love and want to be loved. It’s about how we all eventually lose the people that mean the most to us. It’s about how we all experience grief and successes in these alternating tidal waves of joy and devastation. It’s a record about connecting people.“
