NEW ALBUM TEAR ME TO PIECES OUT MARCH 10
APPEARING AT KNOTFEST AUSTRALIA 2023
Story Of The Year have shared their newest single and music video 2005, out now via SharpTone Records. Transporting listeners back to the titular year with a nostalgic pop-punk baseline and energetic vocals, 2005 is a call to reminisce on the good times and a reminder to make the most of the experiences you have with those closest to you.
“2005 is a journey into the heart of story of the year”, shares vocalist Dan Marsala. “It’s a story about youth and falling in love with music. It’s a reminder of how far we’ve come as a band and how lucky I am to still be playing music with my best friends. This song makes me excited for the future of SOTY.”

Tear Me To Pieces is set for a release on March 10, 2023 via SharpTone Records. The new album is distinctly, invitingly, loudly Story Of The Year. Heartache, desperation, motivation, toxic relationships, pain, loss, anger – all of the essential ingredients of the classic Story Of The Year sound propel Tear Me to Pieces in dazzling new ways. The new album features previously released singles Real Life, Tear Me To Pieces, Take The Ride and War.

“I think this album will be a defining moment in our career,” says Phillips. “When our fans hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Oh, shit, these dudes are ready to go!’ This is the sound of a band putting everything into it. If a new band came out with this album, I’d be texting everyone in my band about it.”
Story Of The Year’s debut album, Page Avenue, was one of the first of its kind to sell a million copies. Until the Day I Die endures as both an anthem and mission statement. Tours with Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Deftones, and The Used cemented Story Of The Year’s reputation as a stunning and engaging live act. The connection between the band and audience transformed Story Of The Year from teenagers working in a St. Louis pizza chain franchise into hard rock headliners. Fans grew together with Dan Marsala, Ryan Philips, Josh Wills, and Adam Russell, from Page Avenue (2003), In the Wake of Determination (2005), The Black Swan (2008), The Constant (2010), to Wolves (2017). They specialize in intense, passionate, confessional compositions that inspire and empower. Songs like The Antidote, Real Life, Miracle, The Ghost of You and I, Anthem of Our Dying Day, and Take Me Back resonate with anyone.
Australian fans can catch Story Of The Year live in action next year as part of the inaugural Knotfest Australiain March 2023, with the band set to perform alongside Slipknot, Parkway Drive, Megadeth, Trivium, Northlane and many more as well as 3 headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
