Four Year Strong, Massachusetts’ sensational pop punk artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Saint Andrews Hall!
Four Year Strong was formed in Worcester (Massachusetts) by Dan O'Connor, Alan Day, Jake Massucco, Joe Weiss, and Josh Lyford. They wanted to create a sound based on the idea of playing exactly what they want to hear or music that they would listen to, but no one else was playing at the time. The result can be best described as a blend of pop punk (a fusion genre that typically combines fast punk rock tempos, power chord changes and loud, distorted electric guitars with pop influenced melodies and lyrical themes) and melodic hardcore (a subgenre of hardcore punk with a strong emphasis on melody in its guitar work, fast rhythms, sometimes distorted guitar riffs, and vocal styles tending towards shouting and screaming). They’ve had a stellar career with 6 studio albums, 8 demo tapes/extended plays, 3 singles, and 9 music videos. Their work has been featured on many compilation albums such as Punk the Clock Vol. III: Property of a Gentleman, Take Action! Vol. 7, The Sounds of Summer Sampler Vol. 2, Punk Goes Pop 2, and many others. They’ve also performed with renowned bands such as Blink-182, New Found Glory, Paramore, and many others.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to melodic hardcore and pop punk music!
