Biography

Worcester, Massachusetts, United States (2001 – present)

Four Year Strong is an American pop punk band from Worcester, Massachusetts, United States, formed in 2001. The group consists of vocalists and guitarists Dan O’Connor and Alan Day, bassist Joe Weiss, and drummer Jackson Massucco. They have released four studio albums; the latest, ‘In Some Way, Shape Or Form’, was released on November 8, 2011. Their music tends to be very fast paced and motivational.

History

Formation and It’s Our Time (2001–2006)

Rise or Die Trying, Explains It All (2006–2009)

The band’s 2007 release Rise or Die Trying with I Surrender Records peaked at number 31 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in its debut week. On the back of their increasing popularity, the band was signed to Decaydance Records in February 2008.

On July 21, 2009, Four Year Strong released an album of covers from the 1990s, titled Explains It All. The album features guest appearances from Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, and JR and Buddy of Less Than Jake. The band explained their reasoning behind the album in a MySpace blog, saying “It’s what we grew up listening to. Everyone has those songs that instantly transport you back to when you were younger. Whether we were in our bedrooms playing air guitar, or riding in the car to little league practice, or it was just that song that was all over the radio during that awesome summer at the Cape. These songs have impacted us in some way and we want to share that feeling with you.”

    Great new album, a little similar to the „Enemy of the World“-sound - And a huge progress form the last album which I don’t even care to listen to anymore. FYS are back!

    Personally speaking I think Rise or Die Trying is one of the best pop punk albums ever but listening to I'm Big, Bright, Shining Star and We All Float Down Here made me so stoked I guess there's a chance the new album will be better

    I want something like "In Some Way, Shape or Form", more heavy and dark than others.

    Hoping the new record delves into new areas of heaviness.

    As a long time FYS fan I think Go Down In History is their best song.
