Four Year Strong has the perfect ingredient list: With slight inspiration hints from top dogs like Newfound Glory and Taking Back Sunday, heavy guitar bursts, skillful drum sets, and lyrics that force the act of steering wheel tapping, the band can only be described as a high-energy masterpiece.
Starting their journey in 2007 with the full-length debut "Rise or Die Trying" that put them deep into the map, the band started to experiment in front of the world. With a full ‘90s cover album "Explains it All" in 2009 to "Enemy of the World" just one year later, the group began changing its sound with "In Some Way, Shape, or Form" in 2011. This shift in the punk paradigm can act as a true testament to how Four Year Strong’s fans are as unwavering as they come.
Now, with a self-titled album recently released, we see how far they’ve come as a band, as a sound and as an experience – one that is not meant for the faint of heart.
Four Year Strong is appearing with Elder Brother and Defeater on Oct. 10 in Waiting Room in a fall show that the punk in you won’t dare miss. With full-throttle belts and a stage of powerhouses, this energy will mimic throughout Waiting Room in the form of the crowd: a fact that the avid mosh-pitters know very well.
Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $1 for the all-ages show (16-plus with ID unless accompanied with a parent).
