Pittsburgh pop-punk heroes Eternal Boy have shared their new single “A Long Year,” the first track revealed from their forthcoming album Bad Days Are Over, set for release in 2021 via Four Chord Music. “A Long Year” is the band’s first new music since 2017’s Awkward Phase, which gained wide praise from the likes of AltPress, Idobi, New Noise Magazine, & Substream, while also landing at #1 on the Billboard Mid-Atlantic Heatseekers chart, #9 on the LP Vinyl chart, #19 Overall Heatseeker, and #32 Independent Albums.
“This is a song about being tired; being tired of the same routine, being tired of letting people down, and just wanting to make those around you proud of your choices,” explains vocalist Rishi Bahl. “The pandemic has brought an elevated feeling to this song, given that this year has felt like 10 years.”
Eternal Boy are a nostalgic, heartfelt pop punk trio from Pittsburgh, PA, who draw influence from the heyday of the Drive-Thru Records era. The band’s sophomore album Bad Days Are Over was produced by longtime friend & collaborator Chris Badami (The Starting Line, The Early November) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, Taking Back Sunday, Sum 41), and is a heavy hitting ode to good old days; you know, pre-pandemic good old days.
“Bad Days Are Over is a culminating album for us,” Bahl goes on to say. “It was maybe the first time that we wrote songs, recorded those songs, and they turned out how we envisioned them. It features something for every fan of the genre: fast, mid-tempo, happy, sad, hopeful, and depressed. I think it speaks to the emotional roller coaster we have all been enduring over the last 6 months.”
Fans can expect more new music & videos from Eternal Boy in the coming months leading up to the album.
