Alan Day of Four Year Strong

fysmain Alan Day of Four Year StrongFor the fifth annual Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour the venues were a little smaller, the bands were a little more underground, and the energy was at an all time high.

In an effort to keep up with an economy that has us all counting our spare change the tour visited smaller venues this time around allowing for a more intimate setting.  Headlining the tour this year is Thursday and along for the ride are Cancer Bats, Four Year Strong, Pierce the Veil and British band Bring Me The Horizon.

For Four Year Strong, playing The Palladium in Worcester, MA was more like a homecoming.  Having been a fixture in the local scene for so long they are the success story that a lot of younger acts look up to in the local Worcester music scene, this is not lost on the band.

Currently working on a new album, guitarist Alan Day sat down with TWRY staffer Vicky to give the lowdown on TOC, the Worcester music scene and the future for FYS.
