Having blazed a triumphant trail in 2013 with latest album ‘The Greatest Generation’ and lauded festival performances at the likes of Slam Dunk and Vans Warped Tour Europe, 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 13th December.

As The Wonder Years’ Dan “Soupy” Campbell explains “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.”

‘The Greatest Generation’ has been popping up high in the upper echelons of critics’ End of Year lists with Rock Sound recently placing it at Number 5 in their Albums of The Year, declaring the body of work to be “an imperious display of pop-punk at its savvy best and the defining album of what may well have been the genre’s best year for a decade.”
