Light Years Give You ‘Afterlife’:
Ohio Pop-Punks Unveil New Album Via Rude Records
Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Pop-Punk unit Light Years have weaved their way through the scene for almost a decade. Formed by vocalist Pat Kennedy, he enlisted in Tommy Englert, Andrew Foerst and Kent Sliney to round out the group in 2009. They have notched up tours with heavy-hitters like Neck Deep, State Champs, Modern Baseball, Citizen and Turnover, alongside appearances on The Vans Warped Tour and So What?! Music Festival.
The new 11-track rager was recorded and produced by Will Yip (who also produced the band’s 2015 classic, ‘I’ll See You When I See You’). In support of the release, the quartet unleashed a number of singles including videos for ‘Bottle Rocket’ here and lead single ‘Back Then’ here – a unique throwback video which features footage from the band growing up, having been written about their first time on the road. Discussing how much ‘Afterlife’ means to him, Kennedy reveals: “Afterlife is where Light Years has been heading for the past 8 years. We spent more time on this record than anything we have done before and I think it shows. We tried new sounds and ideas that before we would have never thought to do, or been willing to try, which I think only comes from the maturity you get from being in a band for so many years.”
