Product Information

Hopeless Records’ deluxe re-release of The Wonder Years’ sophomore album “The Upsides” includes 4 all-new tracks, recorded in the summer of 2010. “I’m not sad anymore; I’m just tired of this place.” More than anything else, The Upsides is a record about fighting back. It is a soundtrack for the hopeful. The Wonder Years found themselves trudging through their early twenties in a constant state of defeat alongside an army of downtrodden friends. One spring day and a bike ride around the Logan Circle fountain changed everything for the Philadelphia-based five piece. The band all moved into a one-bedroom house in South Philly and spent a scorching month and a half locked in a 15 square-foot basement obsessing over every single part of every single song, refusing to move from the practice space until everyone was content. Each track possesses an honesty that resonates with the message that characterizes the entire album: stand your ground every chance you get because everybody deserves a chance to be happy. The Wonder Years are not sad anymore and have created a record that will give everyone still feeling the weight of the past year a chance to sing along.
