After announcing their new acoustic EP, Burst & Decay, The Wonder Years are back with a heartrending acoustic take on their song “There, There,” and a new tour to celebrate it all!
Give it a listen—and check out the cities and dates of their newly announced tour—below.
The band’s new EP, Burst & Decay, is set for a Sept. 22 release, and it includes seven tracks from the band's previous catalog, reimagined and presented acoustically. “There, There” is taken from the band’s 2013 album The Greatest Generation.

Vocalist Dan Campbell has explained more about their new venture, 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.”
