The Wonder Years to release split 7″ with Motion City Soundtrack

Ahead of their joint US tour alongside State Champs and You Blew It!, The Wonder Years and Motion City Soundtrack have announced details of a split 7″.

“Not your standard split, this release had us trade instrumental versions of songs off our then-upcoming releases “No Closer to Heaven” and “Panic Stations“. Given only the song titles and having never heard the original versions, Dan from TWY and Justin Pierre from MCS were charged with the task of writing their own lyrics and melodies to create songs that blur the lines between the two artists.”

The split is available to preorder from October 12th but for those who have bought VIP tickets to the tour, there’s a chance to get it a few days early (9th October).

We’re excited to announce a very limited Tour 7” with Motion City Soundtrack. If you purchase(d) a VIP Package from TWY or MCS, you will receive a code which will give you first dibs to purchase the 7" on Oct 9th. General On Sale goes up on the 12th. It will be first come first serve and while supplies last as it’s very limited. You can pick up VIP/GA Tickets here – http://bit.ly/J09ve4.
