Story Of The Year Tickets for Sale

These St. Louis-based post-grunge kids formed in 1995 and made it to Maverick in 2003. Their debut, Page Avenue, is a solid entry into the new age of alternative metal typified by such bands as Staind and Trapt. The difference with Story of the Year is that they've got a strong emo background that can be felt in their songs.

Straight from the heart of St Louis, Cometh five humans with rock and roll powers unlike most citizens of Earth. In the immortal and ever knowing words of one Bill S. Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan, Story of the Year have proven themselves 'most triumphant.

After nearly a decade of tight-knit friendship and years of playing music, Story of the Year have established themselves as one of the most promising unsigned bands in the nation. With tons of shows under their belt; opening and touring with bands like Glass Jaw, Goldfinger, Finch, Mest, Papa Roach, Riddlin Kids, (to name a few) Story of the Year have turned heads with an insanely energetic live show rivaled by few. Their on-stage antics and originality have earned them praise nationwide and have no doubt made them a band to watch out for.

Story of the Year takes pride in knowing that they are undoubtedly one of the hardest working bands in the universe. Over the years, they have independently handled all of their own affairs and learned to be quite self sufficient. They personally built and maintain this webpage, they design, print, and package all of their own promotional material, CDs, T-shirts, and other merchandise, they book and organize all of their shows and tours, they (along with friend Alan Hessler) record their own music, and they've even filmed, edited, and duplicated their own 40 minute home video. Story of the Year have independently organized their own nation-wide street team, right down to duplicating the Promo CD's themselves. All of this, on top of a 5 day a week practice schedule keep the boys very busy, but very happy....

In Spring of 2001, Story of the Year recorded a 5 song self titled EP in St Louis with engineer / producer Alan Hessler (SGM records) and relocated from St Louis, MO to Orange County to surf, catch potato bugs in their house, and to take over the world. The band spent this summer and fall on tour with Goldfinger and the Vans Warped Tour. In September, the band officially changed their name to 'STORY OF THE YEAR'. (Since 1997, they were known as 'bigbluemonkey')

Future Plans...In the spring of 2003, Story of the Year will be recording their debut full length record with producer John Feldman (The Used, Mest, Goldfinger) in Los Angeles, CA. Until then, the boys will spend all winter in sunny California writing their record and playing random shows here and there.
