December 13th, 2017 – St. Louis, Missouri – Story of the Year is excited to be premiering the official music video for “Bang Bang” exclusively with New Noise Magazine today. This DIY video was filmed, directed and edited by Guitarist Ryan Phillips. “Bang Bang” was the first single from their recently released and critically acclaimed album Wolves, which took over the#1 spot on the iTunes‘ Alternative charts along with a prominent feature in Spotify’s New Rock Releases. The praise continued from outlets like Billboard, Nylon, Fuse, AXS and Alternative Press. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, New Found Glory, Acceptance)and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge & J Hall, Wolves is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunesand Pledge Music.
On the video, Phillips shared “Our live shows have always been our calling card, sort of what were known for. The synthesis of the Bang Bang video essentially revolved around tapping into that live energy in a visually appealing and mysterious way, capturing a raw, guttural performance. Something to remind people that we’re back and rock harder than ever! This video was completely DIY – us hiring our friends, pooling our resources, and going out in the woods and being creative.”
In celebration of their recent release, Story of the Year will be hosting Album Release Parties in Chicago and St Louis early next year. Fans will get to hear some of these new tracks live for the first time along with their favorite hit songs they have been singing along to for the past 17 years to hit songs like “Until The Day I Die,” “Anthem of our Dying Day,” “Take Me Back,” “Wake Up” and more.
