Influential rock band Story of the Year are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their celebrated, landmark album, Page Avenue, with the release of a new acoustic, re-imagining of the record called Page Avenue: Ten Years and Counting, which is due out on October 8th.
“”Until The Day I Die” is one of the biggest songs of our career,” says singer Dan Marsala. “It’s a song that really connects with a lot of people. We wanted this version to be an intimate and mellow take that would be a good platform for the lyrics to really shine through. It’s a classic relationship song and this laid back vibe really fits it well.”“Creatively speaking, one of our main goals for Ten Years and Counting was to fully utilize the piano and allow it to be the driving presence & focal instrument within these songs, as opposed to just recording a couple of acoustic guitars and throwing a vocal on top,” adds guitarist Ryan Phillips. “This version of “Until the Day I Die” strongly exemplifies that mindset and allows the song to open up and breath, giving a stronger focus on the lyrics and vocal melodies. I’m pretty stoked on it, especially toying with arrangement a bit and adding a little guitar solo. Fun.”
