Story of the Year were the biggest punk-rock band coming out of the early 2000's. Recently SOTY have been in sort of a hiatus since their last record The Constant (2010).
On September 23rd, 2016 Off The Record had the pleasure to attend the USO Red Rock & Blue show with headliners Story of the Year. With an amazing set of past hits like The Antidote, Anthem of Our Dying Day, Sidewalks, and Until the Day I Die. Just this August we spoke to Dan Marsala before playing with his other band (FUCK OFF AND DIES) and there was no hint of new music coming from SOTY.
With half of SOTY working on side projects, Dan with FUCK OFF AND DIES. Phillip Sneed (Moon) and Ryan Phillips with Greek Fire. The guys from SOTY have been busy. Which came as a surprise as we stood front row at the barricade when Dan announced that he and the guys were heading back to the studio to work on new music and proceeded to play one of the new songs 'Bang Bang'. Other than a few surprise hugs from Dan, we enjoyed our very first Story of the Year. With random appearances and shows from SOTY we can't wait to see SOTY return to glory like many bands of the 2000's are doing as of late with Green Day, Blink-182 and more.
Also on the show was The Hush List and The Struts who have been growing and dominating all over the US.
