Story Of The Year

About this Artist

Story of the Year is an American rock band formed in St. Louis, Missouri in 1995 under the name 67 North.The band eventually changed their name to Big Blue Monkey in 1998, and then subsequently changed it again to Story of the Year in 2002, after the release of their EP titled Story of the Year on the indie label Criterion Records. At the time, they claimed they discovered that a blues group named Big Blue Monkey had already existed. Later, on their podcast "Page Avenue Crew", they clarified that they just didn't care for the name and made up the excuse of another band having the same name.

It would not be until three years after forming that Story of the Year saw its first piece of commercial success in its major label debut, Page Avenue, containing the popular singles "Until the Day I Die" and "Anthem of Our Dying Day". The bands sound combines alternative rock, early 2000s emo, pop punk containing elements of post-hardcore and alt-metal with anthemic choruses.
