Guitarist Ryan Phillips created the video, along with every other visual content from the start of Story of the Year’s return last year. This is just the start of how involved in this entire project the band has been. With essential freedom in the creation of this record, the band poured out their honest emotions into every track, wearing their hearts on their sleeves. On the production side, this is the band’s first album that was recorded in pieces, in separate locations without a timeline requiring them to settle on decisions quickly. Wolves is full of depth as the band continues down a supercharged anthemic road of alternative rock/hard rock songs while remaining consistent to their classic Story of the Year soaring sound.

Story of the Year are celebrating the release of Wolves with special album release shows, including the recently announced New York City appearance at Gramercy Theatre on March 16th. This will be Story of the Year’s first show back in the Big Apple since their last sold-out appearance in 2013. Earlier this month, the band held album release shows in in Chicago and St. Louis and both sold out, so be sure to get your tickets early. For more details on these special shows, please head to
