It must really suck to be Four Year Strong right now

February 9, 2010

March can’t come soon enough. Not only does the weather in Chicago change from “absolutely terrible” to “only kind of terrible,” but March also marks the release of one of the most anticipated albums of the year.

Four Year Strong will release Enemy of the World on March 9, 2010. The few songs we have heard from the followup to their 2007 release Rise or Die Trying have blown nearly everyone away.

You can pick up this album March 9

Today, put up the band’s first single from Enemy of the World. “Wasting Time (Eternal Summer)” can be streamed in it’s entirety right here.

The song is fast and fun, and if the rest of the songs on this album are anything like it, we are in for a fantastic album.

Songs from their 7″ comically titled It’s Not The Size of the 7″…It’s How You Use It, also preview what we can expect from the new album.

“It Must Really Suck to be Four Year Strong Right Now” was the first song that was made public from the new album. This sounds like a classic Four Year Strong song, picking up right where Rise or Die Trying left off. Of course, in standard Four Year Strong fashion, the song is equipped with a poppy breakdown that will please all of the band’s fans.

Enemy of the World is shaping up to be an amazing record, just in time for spring. I can see this album blaring from my car with the windows down all summer.

The only thing that makes me want to tone down my excitement is how pumped I was for Set Your Goals to release This Will be the Death of Us last year. We all know that Four Year Strong and Set Your Goals will always be compared to one another (even though FYS crushes SYG in every aspect). From the first songs I heard from This Will be the Death of Us, it was on its way to the top of my album of the year list, until the album was released. This Will be the Death of Us is one of the cheesiest albums of all time. Nearly every song had a guest appearance as to say “Hey! Look how many friends we have!” The Hayley Williams cameo will go down as one of the worst in history. That album had so much hype behind it, and in my opinion, it went down harder than the Hindenburg.

But, Four Year Strong is a much better band. I think Enemy of the World will be one of the best albums of the year. Upsides by The Wonder Years might have some serious competition at the top of my list.

    I don’t like to admit it, but I never really got into Four Year Strong until recently. After hearing some of these new songs, I’m getting pretty stoked for this album.
