Four Year Strong has announced they would be releasing their highly anticipated fifth full-length album Brain Pain on February 28 via Pure Noise Records. This will be the band’s first album since their self-titled release in 2015 and we know it will be worth the wait.
The band–which is made up of vocalist/guitarists Dan O’Connor and Alan Day, bassist JoeWeissand drummer Jake Massucco–began conceptualizing the ideas for Brain Pain two years ago and for the past year-and-a-half have focused on bringing those thoughts to life.
“We didn’t want to set a strict deadline for this album because we wanted to be sure we took the time to write the best songs possible. In the past our writing and recording were so dependent on getting something out in time to go on tour; this time we really had the opportunity to take our time and work through these ideas.”
In order to capture that sound, the group enlisted producer Will Putney, who was an engineer on 2010’s Enemy Of TheWorld and already had a relationship with the band.
“We were really emotionally invested in this music so we wanted to go with someone who we knew would care about it as much as we did and Will was that guy,” Day says
In addition to today’s announcement, Four Year Strong has dropped two brand new songs for fans.“Talking Myself In Circles” and title track “Brain Pain” are the first singles from the forthcoming album.
