The Wonder Years announce European tour (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
HaAVING blazed a triumphant trail in 2013 with latest album The Greatest Generation, The Wonder Years are all set to continue their worldwide touring onslaught in 2014.
The band will be headlining across Europe in May with support from A Loss For Words and State Champs, as well as playing Groezrock in Belgium and Loudfest in Switzerland.
Boston’s A Loss For Words will be joining them in support of their new record, Before It Caves, which is out via Velocity/Rise Records.
State Champs make their first trip to Europe/UK in support of their recent release via Pure Noise Records entitled The Finer Things.
Tickets will be on sale from Friday, December 13 at 9am and cost £13.50.
The Wonder Years’ Dan “Soupy” Campbell explained: “We wanted to bring the same family aesthetic and complete bill that we try to create with every US tour to overseas audiences. So, in keeping with that tradition, we decided on long-time friends and genre mainstays in A Loss For Words coupled with one of most exciting new bands in the genre – State Champs.
“We’re planning on shows that get crowds involved and excited from the first note of the night to the last and believe that this tour is going to bring just that.”
