Thank you for an amazing set tonight. I managed to work my way to the barricade for you guys, which was pretty freaking cool. Apparently I got to the merch stand at the wrong time, so I didn't get a chance to meet any of you. The downside of not having a Twitter, I guess? I hope Perth was sufficiently awesome, and I can't wait till you come back.
Thanks for coming out. I don’t have twitter either so I feel you on that. Perth was cool for hanging out and going to the ocean but the show didn’t treat us very well. For the most part people liked it but there were a handful of people being shitty to us.
This might be a stupid question, but I got in a fight with some dude on YouTube over this - is the instrument in "Hey Thanks" a saxophone or a trombone? This guy is insisting that its a trombone, and on the studio version it definitely sounds like it very well could be trombone, but I saw you guys live a few months ago and he played it on sax..so which is it?
It is a trombone on the record but when we play it live, our tour manager, Johnny plays the part on sax.
Hey bro, what guitar pics do you use? :) I found a pic on the ground after your set in Adelaide and was hoping it was from you or another dude from TWY but it may havebelonged to Confession/Valley of Bones.
I custom ordered 3 sided picks from In Tune Guitar Picks. One side has The Wonder Years pigeon logo on it and the other has the devil horns on it. They are black but are the same diameter as the yellow Dunlop picks.
All of The Wonder Years members have the pigeon logo on one side of their picks.
hope you all got back to the states okay after your visit to australia. I saw you at the wollongong show, and saw you last time at Sydney. I really hope you had a great time despite how you may have been treated in some places, but it was definitely a great tour still I'm sure! Parkway Drive are great guys, It was just unlucky that You Me At Six had to pull out. Have you met those guys before, YMA6? I've always heard they are nice dudes as well. Anyways!
When do you reckon the new song will be up? I've been driving myself crazy waiting for this album, whilst trying to study for my exams. Lots of other great albums hitting stores too! Fireworks, Frank Turner, The Swellers, Set Your Goals, Touche Amore and I believe there is also new material coming from Skyway soon!
Enough of my chatter, I really hope you are back in Australia soon!
Home safe and sound. I had an amazing time. Despite some of the negativity at some of the shows, I still got to go to Australia for free so that was enough for me. Parkway were great! I met 2 of the guys from YMA6 in England when we were in Bristol playing on the Kerrang tour. The 2 guys I met were really down to earth. I believe Coffee Eyes goes up tomorrow! Tons of great albums have been coming out recently/are coming out soon. It’s a good year for punk and pop/punk. I hope to be back as soon as possible. I absolutely love Australia.
I hope you and the rest of TWY don't let them assholes chanting and whatever last night put you off coming back to Melbourne after the new album drops. It'd be a real shame, they was just disrespectful. You guys still put on a great show, the new track kills it live.
We will be back, don’t worry. Thank you. I can’t wait to be back doing a headliner or a pop punk tour.
the pop band dropped and didn't another band ? bleeding through or something ? i'm not questioning whether they're talented or good dudes, them being who they and how big they are is proof that they are talented, and they are known for being down to earth good dudes, even though i don't like the band etc.the pheonix show was $20, the club show was free until 10, then it was like $10, the acoustic show was free, and the 18+ was around 20 dollars. i'm not not going because i'm cheap or something, last year i spent 500 dollars on a week of taking school and work off and flying to adelaide and back and then going to all the melbourne shows with a group of friends. there is just something about this tour that is so impersonal compared to the last tour. and i know i just sound like a brat, theres no need to be sorry too, it just sucks for me from having the last tour to this tour to be able to compare as seeing you guys. it would be a dream to be able to play to thousands of people every night like this tour has done for you guys, but it would of been cool to at least have some side shows or something, but then theres problems with the contract not letting you guys do that etc. anyway, i look forward to seeing you guys tomorrow and have fun on the rest of the tour and hopefully see you guys on a headlining tour after the new album is released.
Yes, Me You At Six and Bleeding Through dropped. We got offered this tour and it was a good chance for us to play some bigger shows to some new people so we took it. If we didn’t take this tour we would have been touring in another country on another tour we got offered and wouldn’t have been here in the first place (though I’m extremely stoked to be here). We are doing what we think we should be doing as a band and I am honored to be on this tour. I have no regrets. If this were a headliner tour I’m sure it would be much different but like I said, we got offered this as an opening band so we don’t call the shots. We didn’t have the option of doing side shows really. We could only do the one with the time that we have here. We need time at home after this to get ready for warped and whatnot. I’m not really sure why I’m explaining myself because I really don’t feel like I have to but I hope this gives you some perspective.
sucks that you guys had to come to australia a second time with terrible bands but even worse that the only side show is at a shitty melbourne club with one of the same terrible bands. i know i wouldn't fully understand because i'm just some kid who has no idea what it's like to be in a band as big as yours and that it would be good money and a good chance for your music to get further out, but from playing a free show at some shithole record store in ringwood to a $40 + show at festival hall with 'parkway drive' is a bit sucky. see you at festival hall anyway, and hopefully on a headlining tour next time.
Though you may not like the bands, they are super talented and great dudes. We were honored to be asked to do a Parkway Drive tour. I’m sorry you didn’t like the tour package. It was originally supposed to be a mash up of pop bands and metal bands but the other pop act dropped the tour. I could be wrong but isn’t 40 dollars for a show a reasonable price in Australia? I’m pretty sure tickets for our headliner last time were close to 30. Sorry to disappoint you but this was a good opportunity for us.
i would like to see you and yours at the vans warped tour in kansas city this summer if there is anyway that you can assist this goal for my friends and i we would be more than happy to:
poop on your enemies porches
make you arts and crafts knick knacks
actually buy your guy's next album (curse mediafire and its glory)
or not show up to your next performance with a cardboard sign like we did in springfield missouri last time around cause god knows thats about as creative as a group of plain white tweens showing up to a plain white t's concert wearing none other than... a plain white tee
anyway i hope to see you guys there one way or another, i hope i don't sound like a tool for asking, and i hope you guy's stay safe and never stop making music
Hit me up on here a couple days before the show and hopefully we can work something out. I believe we will be hanging out at our tent doing signings and meeting people every day after our set.
While I was driving the van this morning on I75 a wild turkey came out of nowhere and smashed into the windshield right in front of me. Thank god it didn’t completely come through the windshield or else I would be dead. I’m still picking off little specks of glass from my body. The van is getting a new windshield right now.
