The Wonder Years release video for ‘Sister Cities’

By James Davenport

Nearly three years since the release of their highest-charting album (2015’s No Closer To Heaven), The Wonder Years return with ‘Sister Cities’.

Recorded at Sunset Sound with Joe Chiccarelli (Manchester Orchestra, The Shins, Spoon) and Carlos de la Garza (Jimmy Eat World, Paramore), ‘Sister Cities’, out April 6, is an album about distance, connectivity and the way humanity towers above boundaries.

vocalist Dan Campbell on the inspiration behind ‘Sister Cities’:

“It started with journals and photos. We started by documenting. We didn’t know where it would go or if it would go anywhere at all but we wrote it all down. We took photos of everything. And then when it came to put it altogether, we had this catalog of how we felt and what it looked like and sounded like and we built from there. Figuring out what the moments were that stayed with me the most. When did I feel most connected to the people around me and why? What did being in this place during this moment teach me? It was a difficult year personally and globally and we experienced that through this lens of being everywhere but home, kind of floating through places and seeing how being there altered our perspective.”

The Wonder Years will tour the UK and Ireland this spring in support of ‘Sister Cities’ with Sorority Noise. Tickets are on sale now.
