Guns! Bayonnets! Red Coats! No, we’re not talking about those fun war reenactments that people go to. We’re describing the new Four Year Strong video for “Tonight We Feel Alive (On A Saturday)”. Directed by our good friend Tom Colella, take a time warp back to colonial days and check it out now!
We may or may not have squealed like little girls when the clock struck midnight (okay, maybe I was the only one actually making noise about this). But we’re incredibly excited to announce that Four Year Strong are the free video of the week on iTunes! Are you jumping up and down like we are? Maybe? Whatever you do, make sure to download Four Year Strong’s video for “It Must Really Suck To Be Four Year Strong Right Now” this week while it lasts!
Holy special edition, Batman! Four Year Strong is proud to announce the release of the Enemy Of The World special edition. If you’re nearly as excited as we are, you can’t wait to hear the details. Well! The release will include a new album cover, as well as new booklet design. And of course, let’s not forget about the unreleased track “Bad News Bearz” and four re-worked acoustic tracks from Enemy Of The World. The special edition will be available June 22nd on iTunes and June 25th physical on the Vans Warped Tour! And if you just can’t wait that long, sneak a peek over at the band's Facebook Page to hear the newly arranged “Tonight We Feel Alive (On A Saturday)”!
Are you an aspiring artist? Or maybe you like to sit around your house and draw crappy stick figures like I do (this is what the I Surrender staff does on their weekends). Or best of all, you’ve always wanted to be the 6th member of FYS. Well, here’s your shot, at least when it comes to drawing pretty pictures. Friends Or Enemies is currently running a contest where they want to see you draw yourself into the Enemy of the World album artwork. Winner will receive a FYS skate deck, enter now!
