The grassroots, back-to-basics authenticity of The Story So Far is a blast of renewing fresh air! Their energetic and impressively honest take on hardcore-infused pop-punk music propelled them to the cover of the 2013 Alternative Press 100 Bands You Need To Know issue, to the enduring subcultural benchmark the Vans Warped Tour, and into the hearts and minds of listeners.
Like their predecessors in legendary pop-punk bands Blink-182, Green Day, or The Descendents, the five guys in The Story So Far got together with no loftier an ambition than to make the music they wanted to hear. Along the way, they just happened to help usher in a pop-punk revival. It’s a “return of the real” that’s made a sea change across the underground.
Whether the band is destined for the large venues and record sales of a band like A Day To Remember, or even the arena level commanding presence of Blink-182, it’s safe to predict that The Story So Far will be doing it for real and doing it for the right reasons.
