The Wonder Years have announced the re-release of The Upsides, the band’s restless diary of growing up, getting out and making the best of what you have. Arriving September 21 in stores and online everywhere, this re-imagined version of The Upsides not only has a new face to it… it also has 4 new tracks that we’re sure you’ll have on repeat. Wanna check out the CD? Watch as Soupy walks you through the new artwork. In addition to the standard CD, they’ve created a very special limited edition fan pack that includes a Wonder Years lunchbox, which is filled to the brim with everything you could possibly need… a Hopeless & Wonder Years button pack, a Wonder Years poster, a very necessary lunch lady shirt, and because they know you deserve it, a hand signed, and numbered suspension notice. A full U.S. tour with Four Year Strong this fall awaits these soldiers of the road. Not to mention a stint with pop-punkers New Found Glory later this month, before they head down under. Full tour schedule can be found here
