The Wonder Years Set To Fuck Us Up With Epic Australian Headline Tour

The Wonder Years

Alright, so remember when we called that State Champs and Neck Deep tour the “pop-punk fight night of the year“? Well, it appears that seminal pizzacore sextet The Wonder Years are the one-up type, because they just announced an enormous headline tour to shuffle across our shores with this May!

Alongside a set from the primo Pennsylvanians, fans will get to throw down with one of the genre’s biggest acts to burst out of 2015 – Knuckle Puck. No, we’re not fucking with you… Okay stop drooling, for real. Copacetic was the album you probably spent (and we definitely spent) most of the last six months vibing out to, and alongside cuts from that mind-altering debut LP, their set is sure to include some deeper EP classics.

But of course, because The Wonder Years just want to well and truly fuck us up right now (spoiler: it’s working), Sydney pop-ish punks Our Past Days will also join the bill for all of the nine dates. These guys are pretty much the kings of small venue sabotage à la punk jump, so believe us when we say you’ll regret missing their set.

Making the trek Down Under to give their fifth full-length No Closer To Heaven a proper plug, The Wonder Years will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth (so now you can’t complain) from May 5th through 14th. A solid handful of the shows are 18+ (which is great for us ~adults~), but bidding pop-punkettes will be stoked to hear that most of the shows will accomodate for your tiny child selves. Because look, someone’s gotta throw you a bone every now and again!

The Wonder Years were last seen in Australia for Soundwave 2015, where they absolutely destroyed the early morning slot. The news of a headline tour to follow is especially exciting, however, as their SW15 appearances were actually to make up for a tour that was supposed to take place in September 2014, but was cancelled for mysterious reasons the band are keeping a secret to this very day [cue X-Files theme music][knocks on wood].

Tickets are on sale Tuesday February 9th @ 9am.
