Four Year Strong Releases Fifth Full-Length Album “Brain Pain”

After nearly five years, fans can finally listen to a brand new record from Four Year Strong on Friday. Brain Pain, the band’s fifth full-length record, sees the band being more direct and carrying over cohesive themes in a way they haven’t done in the past, making for a more complete narrative. “I think that from a lyrical perspective this is the most thought we’ve ever put into a record,” Guitarist and Vocalist Dan O’ Connor explains — and it shows. Sonically the album’s vocals also sit in the mix in a way that they aren’t battling with the other elements, making Brain Pain the band’s most dynamic release to date.
Fans can stream and purchase Brain Pain today via Pure Noise Records at https://smarturl.it/FourYearStrongMA.
Four Year Strong — which is made up of vocalist/guitarists Dan O’Connor and Alan Day, bassist Joe Weiss and drummer Jake Massucco — began conceptualizing the ideas for Brain Pain two years ago and for the past year-and-a-half have focused on bringing those thoughts to fruition. “We didn’t want to set a strict deadline for this album because we wanted to be sure we took the time to write the best songs possible. In the past our writing and recording was so dependent on getting something out in time to go on tour; this time we really had the opportunity to take our time and work through these ideas.”
In order to capture that sound the group enlisted producer Will Putney, who was an engineer on 2010’s Enemy Of The World and already had a relationship with the band. “We were really emotionally invested in this music so we wanted to go with someone who we knew would care about it as much as we did and Will was that guy,”  Day says.
Fans will have a chance to hear these new songs and more when the band joins Silverstein’s 20 Year Anniversary Tour, kicking off tonight. The tour will also see I The Mighty rounding out the tour package which will have stops in Montreal, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cleveland and more.
