H2ZHW: Josh Wills From Story Of The Year

In this episode we are talking to Josh Wills from Story Of The Year. Hailing from St. Louis in Missouri, Story of the Year have helped shaped the modern post-hardcore landscape. From teenagers working in a St. Louis pizza chain franchise to hard rock headliners and Warped Tour staples, Story of the Year can equally command crowds in intimate clubs and at massive international festivals with equal and effortless ease.

Tear Me To Pieces marks the sixth full length album for the band. An album traversing heartache, desperation, motivation, toxic relationships, pain, loss, anger and beyond, Tear Me To pieces is distinctly, invitingly and loudly Story of the Year, while also propelling the band to dazzling new heights.

“I think this album will be a defining moment in our career,” says guitarist Ryan Phillips of the upcoming release. “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.”

With eleven tracks on offer, including previously released singles Real Life, Take The Ride and the album’s title track Tear Me To Pieces, prepare for an album of unbridled intensity, passion and empowered compositions, and one that rivals the band’s own career breakout debut album. Drummer Josh Wills bought us up to date on all that is Story Of The Year.

The band will also be heading to Australia this March as part KNOTFEST, the destination festival brand curated by SLIPKNOT, that is continuing its ever-expanding global domination. The music and counterculture experience created by the multi-platinum sonic phenomenon SLIPKNOT, will hit the East coast of Australia starting on Friday, March 24th at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, before making its way to Sydney on Saturday, March 25th at Centennial Park and wrapping up in Brisbane on Sunday, March 26th at RNA Showgrounds.
