STREAM: The Wonder Years – “The Devil In My Bloodstream”

TheWonderYears-NOV2012-620

We thought The Wonder Years were done teasing material from their forthcoming album. Thankfully, we were wrong.

While appearing on Man Overboard’s radio show last night, TWY frontman Dan “Soupy” Campbell premiered a new song entitled “The Devil In My Bloodstream.” The track, which is the fourth to surface off The Greatest Generation is the first piano-lead track in the group’s history. In fact, the first two minutes are essentially just Campbell and the piano, but as the song hits its stride the full band comes in for an near-overwhelming musical punch that emphasizes every lyric uttered moments before. It’s easily the strongest, most powerful song to be released from the album so far, and it may be early to claim such things, but something tells me this track is destined to be a cherished fan favorite. Heck, looking at Tumblr right now it’s clear the lyrics hit home in a special way with fans, and only more will come forward in the months ahead. Click below to enjoy “The Devil In My Bloodstream.”

The Greatest Generation arrives in stores next Tuesday, May 14, through Hopeless Records. Until then, comment below and let us know your thoughts on this song.

    I think that is debatable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D83ug8PBEpw
    Pretty sure there is a guitar at the beginning as well, but maybe I am splitting hairs. Either way, thanks for commenting. I had forgotten about that track.

    This is so good, very brand new-esque
