ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Story of the Year to premiere "Anthem of Our Dying Day" from Page Avenue: Ten Years and Counting, out October 8.
No, this is not a brand new SOTY song. It's a new and reworked version of a beloved classic! The band is making it new.
The band is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its classic album, Page Avenue, with an acoustic/re-imagining of the record called Page Avenue: Ten Years and Counting. Also, the band will kick off a headlining tour, the Scream It Like You Mean It trek, on October 8.
"This is one of my favorite Story of the Year songs. I think the piano and the string arrangements compliment the overall moodiness of the lyrics nicely; especially the bridge, it's pretty dark sounding. Again, the piano plays an instrumental role in creating a spooky atmosphere that I think rules. This song could have been really easy to get carried away with, but I think we honored the original appropriately," said SOTY's Ryan Phillips.
"Like many of the songs on this record, we focused on the piano when re-working 'Anthem of Our Dying Day.' I think it gives the song a great dramatic and dark vibe. Such a cool, moody version and one of my favorites on the record," said SOTY's Dan Marsala.
Now that we have the band's insight into this new version of the song, we can all listen properly!
