“Regardless if you’re 15 or 25 or in your 30’s its really easy to look around at your peers and feel like you’ve fallen behind.” shares Griffin Mather on the band’s latest track.
“The song is an attempt to encapsulate the feelings around that”, Mather continues. “It’s so easy in the time of social media to be perpetually comparing yourself to your peers and their successes, to just spend every second robbing yourself of joy, stealing happiness from your own triumphs because there’s always someone doing better.”
Denver, Colorado quintet Years Down have emerged from the pandemic wielding an energy that they want their fans to harness. Taking influence from the likes of New Found Glory and The Wonder Years, the band deliver punk rock the way they believe it should be; honest and high-energy. Nodding to the purveyors of the genre, Years Down present with a distinctly modern soundscape that marries urgency and melody.
Heading into the studio in with producer Taylor Hahn in 2021, Years Down emerged with a string of potent singles. The likes of “Better Off”, “Cover Girl” and “Best of Worst Times” all demonstrating the band’s vitality and grit, with driving guitars, big hooks and resonating heavy injections all on show.
Years Down have mirrored their energy from record to their live show, a boisterous and moreish set that harnesses the Rocky Mountain crew’s expressive brand of pop-punk. A successful recent tour of Texas with Remorsefully Numb proving that state lines are no barrier for infectious pop-punk.
Kicking off 2023 with a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Stay”, Years Down dropped the gritty and anthemic “Shades of Grey” in February, and the new music continues to roll with latest track, “Big S.A.D”.
