Four Year Strong, have confirmed that they will release their new album ‘In Some Way, Shape, Or Form’, in the UK on Island Records on November 7. The first single to be taken from the album will be ‘Stuck In The Middle’. The new material reflects a slight change of musical direction for the band and showcases a number of great rock tracks from the band.
The band have now slimmed down to a four piece and comprise, Dan O’Connor (vocals/guitar), Alan Day (vocals/guitar), Jake Massucco (drums), and Joe Weiss (bass), who formed in Massachusetts in 2001 after O’Conner, Day, and Massucco met through mutual friends – they shared influences like Lifetime, Saves the Day, Gorilla Biscuits, and New Found Glory.
Their distinct sound and incredibly energetic live shows has led to their inclusion on countless tours and also caught the attention of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, who signed FYS to his label Decaydance Records in February 2008. The band’s heightened profile hasn’t stopped them from working non-stop as they continued a hectic touring schedule over the past few years as a part of the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos tour, co-headlining a summer tour with Set Your Goals in the US, appearing at Slam Dunk in the UK and the Warped tour in the US. The band recently appeared at Sonisphere Festival and headlined the Hevy Festival in the UK.
