Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, The Wonder Years are a band made up of old friends, playing rock & roll music and they play it like they mean it. They write songs about love, loved ones and a city – that could be the city you live in or a neighbourhood that feels like it could be your neighbourhood. Their back catalogue is loved by critics and even more loved by fans. Their shows are awash with a genuine emotional energy and catch them perform two headline sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney with Blackpool’s Boston Manor as special Guests.
This will mark the first trip to Australia for Boston Manor. Their second album, Welcome To The Neighbourhood, produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, Public Enemy) is a soundtrack to disenfranchisement set in a fictionalised version of the band’s hometown. It inhabits an unapologetically bleak one, a world rife with poverty and drug addiction, boarded up shops and a population unable to escape a predicament they didn’t even know they were in.
