With yesterday’s shock announcement that The Wonder Years‘ fourth album will be released this September, we’ve barely had time to steady our hands before the Philadelphia band dropped ‘Cardinals’ on us.
The first single to be taken from ‘No Closer To Heaven‘ is a step away from the rugged swirl of 2013’s ‘The Greatest Generation‘ and suggests another expansion of what The Wonder Years can achieve under the banner of Pop-Punk.
The stark welcome of, “Cardinal crashed into my window, I think he might die,” wastes no time in setting the scene for a track that proudly declares, “I swear I’ll never let you down again,” and “We’re no saviours, if we can’t save our brothers.”
It’s a message reflected in the music video for the song, which you can see below.
‘No Closer To Heaven’ is released on September 4th via Hopeless Records and features a song with Letlive’s Jason Aalan Butler. Tracklisting and Michaeal Cortada artwork is as follows.
