OCTOBER 13, 2020 – St. Louis, Missouri – St. Louis rockers Story Of The Year are celebrating the 15th Anniversary of In the Wake of Determination with the first part of their livestream concert series this Friday, October 16th. Fans can purchase an individual show ticket as well as exclusive bundles for the entire Ghost Signal series today at https://ghostsignal.co.
In addition to this week’s show, Story Of The Year will be putting on two additional shows playing iconic albums in full each night including The Black Swan on October 29 and Page Avenue on November 7.
“We are going above and beyond to make our livestream an incredible experience for our fans. We didn’t want to stand on a stage in a sad empty venue and point a couple static go-pros at us. Instead, we spared no expense in building an elaborate ‘bunker’ full of state of the art lights and production, including a 40-foot video wall. It’s over the top awesome, and honestly cooler than anything we’ve done live!” shares Guitarist and visual content specialist Ryan Phillps. “Additionally, we’ve hired an uber creative team of professional camera operators & directors to capture the action in a compelling way. We’re aiming to set the benchmark of what a livestream can be and we’re going to have all of the fun you’ve come to expect at a Story of the Year show! Don’t miss this shit!”
Vocalist Dan Marsala continued, saying “Live music is a huge part of all of our lives, whether it is playing shows or going to shows, we all have a huge void in our lives right now. This is our way to try and stay connected and give a unique experience to the fans who share the same love for our music as we do. We’re playing our first three albums in their entirety. Many of these songs have never been played live before and maybe never will again! Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime crazy event!”
Page Avenue marked Story of the Year’s major label debut in 2003. Featuring iconic singles like “Until The Day I Die” and “Anthem of Our Dying Day”, this album was produced by John Feldmann. Released in 2005, In The Wake of Determination debuted at Number 19 on the Billboard 200 while The Black Swan marked the return of Feldmann to the band’s recording process and debuted at Number 18 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2008.
