The Wonder Years released their newest EP, Burst & Decay, on Sept. 22. It includes seven tracks from the band's previous catalog, reimagined and presented acoustically, and now the band will be ending their east coast tour with an acoustic benefit show for Puerto Rico hurricane relief.

The band will be joined by the Little Kruta String Quartet at Le Poisson Rouge on October 8 in New York City, and while tickets for the show that will be live-streamed are sold out, tickets for the matinee show that day are still available and can be purchased here.

Vocalist Dan Campbell explained more about their new venture in August, called “Loneliest Place On Earth,” a project with Hopeless that’s set to include further releases, artists and events.

“To whom it may concern,

We've begun a new venture. I'm hesitant to give it a title because I don't want to limit what it could become but, for now, I'm going to call it a collective – an avenue for music and art and writing and performance. The first order of business will be to pair up with Hopeless Records to co-release an acoustic EP we recorded in May called 'Burst & Decay'. In the coming months and years, we'll be rolling out releases, artists and events. The seeds are being planted. This is just the beginning but for now, thank you. We love you. We'll see you soon.”

The band will be live streaming the show on Facebook Live at 9:30 p.m. EST.
