The Upsides is a record about hope. During the past year, The Wonder Years found themselves trudging through their early twenties alongside an army of downtrodden friends. It felt like sadness had become the status quo and that didn't sit well with them. On a bike ride around the fountain at Logan Circle in their hometown of Philadelphia on the first day of spring, the idea struck that this constant state of defeat was no way to live and out of that, The Upsides was born. Instead of a writing format derived from the ideas of one member, The Wonder Years built a record out of opposing influences, colossal arguments and gallons of sweat. In writingThe Upsides, The Wonder Years have created a soundtrack for the hopeful.
In addition to the standard CD, Hopeless have created a very special limited edition fan pack that includes, yes, a Wonder Years lunchbox! Don't worry it's filled to the brim with everything you could possibly need... a Hopeless & Wonder Years button pack, a Wonder Years poster, a very necessary lunch lady shirt, and because we know you deserve it, a hand signed, and numbered suspension notice.
