The iconic 4-piece easy-core band, Four Year Strong is back with their new EP, Go Down in History. After Four Year Strong released In Some Way, Shape or Form in 2011, without their keyboardist Josh Lyford, it seemed like they had lost their fun element. Almost three years later, Go Down in History brings Four Year Strong back to it’s roots and highlights exactly what they were originally all about: back-and-forth vocals, heavy guitar riffs, and just having a good time.
The EP opens with “What’s in the Box” and right off the bat you can tell that Four Year Strong is back and better than ever. When the rhythm changes after the line, “… But still I wear all my scars with pride,” you can’t help but nod your head. The song ends with a classic Four Year Strong break down, led in by a cascading drumbeat and quiet backing vocals to yelling with the squeal of a guitar.
