On March 9th, Worcester’s own Four Year Strong, purveyors of pop infused hardcore, delivered their latest album “Enemy Of The World” to music fans everywhere.  Some fans feared that with their first album on Universal Motown/Decaydance Records, Four Year Strong may become a victim of the machine and lose their edge but the only “Machine” the band fell prey to was the producer of the same name who guided them seamlessly through the recording process and helped them deliver the perfect follow up to “Rise Or Die Trying”.

While “Enemy Of The World” does have a more polished feel, it’s fueled whole-heartedly by the Four Year Strong spirit.  Kicking off the album with “It Must Really Suck To Be Four Year Strong Right Now” the lyrics speak volumes “..don’t fix it if it isn’t broken..” and while the band diplomatically declined to comment on the specific meaning of this lyric we can all draw enough from it to know that Four Year Strong is committed to bringing their loyal following the music that that made us all fans from the beginning.

While their music blends the boundaries between hardcore and power pop/punk, this band has never been one to slap a label on their sound.  Going into the writing process for “Enemy Of The World” all they knew was that they wanted to capture the essence of their live performance as much as possible and try some new things with the end goal of writing a great record from start to finish without forcing anything.  “Enemy Of The World” delivers just that, picking up right where “Rise Or Die Trying” left off and even offering up a few surprises along the way.

We caught up with proud New England native and Four Year Strong keyboardist/vocalist Josh Lyford to talk about the making of the new album, their allegiance to New England and all things Four Year Strong.

fysmainFor 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.
