Story Of The Year announce 20 years of Page Avenue Australian Tour

Words by Staff Writer

The American rock band Story Of The Year were just in the country last year for the first ever Knotfest Australia with sideshows.

Page Avenue, the debut title for American post-hardcore team Story Of The Year hit hard 20 years ago; ‘And the Hero Will Drown’ kicked it into gear, met with the anthemic ‘Until The Day I Die’, actual anthem ‘Anthem of Our Dying Day’ and the mega belter ‘Razerblades’. As it turns out, the album would become a defining body of work not only for the band but for a generation of post hardcore, alternative rock, punk lovers.

Now the album is getting its special treatment as Story Of The Year tour it down under, along with their greatest hits. Along for the celebration are friends Senses Fail, who will be playing their own debut Let It Enfold You in full across the tour, and Australia’s Behind Crimson Eyes.

Starting in Perth on 4 August, this national celebration of post hardcore and alternative rock will head to Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, before wrapping up in Brisbane on 11 August. Capturing the essence of 2004, Story Of The Year and Senses Fail will lace their sets in their debut albums, ready for crowd sing-alongs.

Story Of The Year have been hailed as helping shape the post hardcore landscape thanks to their blend of loud guitars, pounding drums, singalong choruses and a permeating sense of positivity in their enduring creations. Page Avenue became the first of its kind to sell a million copies, placing the band alongside greats of their stylistic surrounds including Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Deftones and The Used. The band jumped up on the beloved Warp Tour stage before their debut single ‘Until the Day I Die’ was even released, cementing them from the get go.

Now 20 years later the act have six studio albums to their name including In The Wake of Determination (2005), The Black Swan (2008), The Constant (2010), Wolves (2017) and their most recent 2023 full length Tear Me To Pieces. It’s pretty good going for teenagers working in a pizza show to being a class act for two decades.

A similar story can be said for their supports Senses Fail and Behind Crimson Eyes who have both colourfully celebrated careers with Senses Fail emerging in the early 2000’s and Behind Crimson Eyes snagging mainstream attention with their 2006 debut album A Revelation For Despair.

Tickets for the upcoming tour can be purchased via general sale on Thursday 9 May at 12pm local time through promoters Destroy All Lines
