Hopeless Records signs The Wonder Years

Thursday, May 27, 2010 4:04 PM PT / 4,358 views
Hopeless Records has officially signed Philadelphia pop-punk/hardcore band The Wonder Years. Formed in 2005, the group has previously put out several releases through No Sleep Records. The band comments: "Hopeless was the right choice for us. We've never been concerned with sounding like the other bands on a label. I mean, when we signed with No Sleep there were two other bands on the label. One sounded like Botch and the other sounded like Modest Mouse. For us, it's more important that a label gets us and what we want to do and after a ton of meetings with Hopeless, we know that it’s the right home for us. The roster is small and so we know we won't get lost in the mix. The staff members are hard working and super nice. We respect all of the charity work the label does and are excited to be a part of a label that has such an interest in helping people. Hopeless has an amazing back catalog full of some of my all-time favorite records and we're really honored to have the chance to even be mentioned in the same breath as some of their bands." www.myspace.com/thewonderyears

good pop punk with unfunny song names.

"Hopeless Records" alright.

BrettMichaels 5/28/2010 3:06:43 AM

The executives from Death Row Records are not very stoked.

theconnductor 5/28/2010 10:17:28 AM

so you may have lucked out by not sounding like anyone else on your label, but what about sounding like everyone else in the industry at the moment? so over this pop punk with breakdowns horse shit.

appreesh 5/28/2010 2:27:39 PM

theconnductor should note that their last full length had (what im assuming he meant as "hardcore") breakdowns in it. awesome dudes, stoked for them.

appreesh 5/28/2010 2:42:42 PM

siqbrah 5/29/2010 12:50:59 PM
