REVIEW: Four Year Strong – ‘Four Year Strong’

Artist: Four Year Strong
Album: Four Year Strong
Label: Pure Noise Records
Genre: Easycore, baby

Before we take the next 1,100 words or so to discuss the new Four Year Strong record, let’s talk about presentation.

Four Year Strong is a band that has always cared about presentation. Ridiculous promo pictures featuring the band’s enormous men in FYS-branded varsity jackets, the famous beards, song titles riddled with highly-quotable movie lines, and cartoon album artwork with robot sharks, wizards, and centaurs are all essential parts of the brand that Four Year Strong spent so much time building in the late 2000s. …

The Canadian band will follow up that near-perfect record with Tragedy Will Find Us, out August 1 on Pure Noise. You can stream the first single, “Burn,” below.

“Burn” starts off as a standard Counterparts song, with a melodic guitar riff that begins to build up the emotional weight carried by the urgent instrumentals and vocals. Things get weird around the 90-second mark with a tempo change that I love and a spoken word …
