In just a few short years, a handful of EPs and two full-length albums, The Story So Far’s refreshing, energetic and impressively honest take on hardcore-infused pop-punk music propelled them to the cover of the 2013 Alternative Press 100 Bands You Need To Know issue, to the enduring subcultural benchmark the Vans Warped Tour, and into the hearts and minds of listeners. Catchy vocal gymnastics and supercharged riffs are delivered with no less precision than the most accomplished of rock acts but disguised by an instantly memorable simplicity that drives the hooks home.
The band’s sophomore album, What You Don’t See (2013), delivered on the undeniable promise of Under Soil and Dirt (2011) and cracked the Billboard Top 50 in the process. The band returned to close collaborator and comrade Sam Pura (Basement, State Champs) for their self-titled third set, a no-bullshit, wistful but forceful adventure in song. This is music to fall in love to, to heal a broken heart with, to celebrate personal victories, or trudge through life’s hardships. The Story So Far rejects the runaway complications and tired clichés that started to spoil the authentic passion of punk and hardcore, trimming the fat away from the standard chugging guitars and laying as much heartfelt emotion into the music as catchy hooks.
Choruses that demand to be screamed along with at sweaty shows where audiences share a transcendent experience through the communal experience of good old fashioned pop punk, and music that often blurs the line between aggressive rock and bouncing enthusiasm, without ever losing its genuine edge and uncompromising veracity. What began as five kids in the same neighborhood, barely out of middle school, who just wanted to play music, has blown up into a sweeping wave of fist-pumping realism, crashing down on the pretentious and the pretenders.
