Pop punk supremos, Four Year Strong, have confirmed a string of UK dates to coincide with the release of their heavily anticipated third full length album, Enemy of the World. The album will be released in the UK on Defacto/Island Records on May 31st.
The band, Dan O’Connor (Vocals/Guitar), Alan Day (Vocals/Guitar), Josh Lyford (Vocals/Synth), Jake Massucco (Drums), and Joe Weiss (Bass), was formed in Massachusetts in 2001 after O’Conner, Day, and Massucco met through mutual friends. With influences like Lifetime, Saves the Day, Gorilla Biscuits, and New Found Glory, FYS has always strived to create music that they themselves would enjoy as listeners. Their motivation has manifested itself in a fluid mix of everything from punk pop to hardcore to indie rock.
Their distinct sound and incredibly energetic live shows has led to their inclusion on countless tours and also caught the attention of Fallout Boy’s Pete Wentz, who signed FYS to his label Decaydance Records in February 2008. The band’s heightened profile hasn’t stopped them from working non-stop as they continued a hectic touring schedule last year as a part of the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour and co-headlining a summer tour with Set Your Goals in the US. The band have recently been touring in the US with Every Time I Die.
The band worked on EOTW with legendary producer, Machine (Lamb of God, Cobra Starship, Armour for Sleep).
