THE WONDER YEARS’
SUBURBIA I’VE GIVEN YOU ALL AND NOW I’M NOTHING
DEBUTS AT #65 ON BILLBOARD TOP 200
ALBUM OUT NOW ON HOPELESS RECORDS
CATCH THE BAND ON WARPED TOUR ALL SUMMER
It’s now become even more apparent that Philly pop-punks The Wonder Years are connecting with music fans in a big way, as the band’s critically-praised new album, Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing (Hopeless Records) zoomed in at #65 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week. The release was also #12 on the Current Alternative Albums chart, #11 on the Independent Current Albums chart, and #1 on the LP Vinyl Albums chart.
Inspired in part by Allen Ginsberg’s 1956 poem “America,” The Wonder Years’ Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing is an introspective, heartfelt, and honest journey that tells the story of a growing culture of people in America trying to find their place in the world without compromising the beliefs that make them who they are.  With intelligent lyrics accompanied by the catchy, raw, and driving pop punk that fans identify with The Wonder Years, Suburbia is both a cultural manifesto and a great summer album that will serve as the anthem for anyone questioning where home really is.
The Wonder Years celebrated the album’s release last week with a triumphant sold out hometown show at Philadelphia’s Starlight Ballroom, which was also streamed live to record numbers of viewers on www.altpress.com. The band is now gearing up for a summer long stint on the Vans Warped Tour which starts in DallasTX this Friday, June 24.
Front man Dan “Soupy” Campbell is also one of the featured artists on the cover of Alternative Press’ Warped Tour issue, which hits stands on July 5th.

What others are saying about The Wonder Years’ Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing:
“The Wonder Years have sort of morphed into pop-punks Obama, delivering a message of hope and change that’s galvanizing the youth of America to take off the neon and focus on meaningful songs again…enormous hooks that pull from vintage Saves The Day and the Starting Line while still sounding fresh and exciting…4 ½ stars”- Alternative Press
With their third full-length, The Wonder Years have made a record that’s as timeless as they come.”- Absolutepunk.net
 Emotive and punchy, the Philadelphia six-piece wear their broken hearts firmly on their sleeves and, with a six-strong vocal onslaught saved for special moments, the boys have carved out a clutch of anthems of sorts for another generation of pop-punk fans. An impressive third effort indeed, designed to compel you to throw your fist skyward and indulge in a good old sing-song.”- Rock Sound
“…The Wonder Years don’t just play songs, they craft stories, delving into the everyday battles that exist in between all the big moments in life. Taking a cue from narrative-centric bands like the Hold Steady and the Thermals, the band creates a living and breathing world for their songs to live in… These little touches give Suburbia that certain something that allows it to stand apart from the band’s peers, giving the listeners songs that don’t need to be deciphered so much as pieced together into a single story. This kind of songwriting makes for an engrossing listen that invites you to sit back and hear its tales as the Wonder Years show you that relationships aren’t the only things in this world that can break your heart.”- Allmusic.com
“Plenty of bands claim they document life through their lyrics, but few have ever done so in such a blunt and relatable way as Hopeless Records’ The Wonder Years. One of the best albums you’ll hear this year.”- Underthegunreview.net
In the year 2011, The Wonder Years are the defining pop punk band and ‘Suburbia I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing’ is a must…Filled with instant hooks, accessible lyrics and an all-round feel-good record.”- Alterthepress.com
“…without a doubt, one of the best pop-punk albums ever created.”- Mindequalsblown.net
The Wonder Years have proven that they are the pop-punk band of this generation.”- Reviewrinserepeat.com
