Originally released in 2013, The Greatest Generation, the third full-length from Philadelphia pop punk legends, The Wonder Years, is considered one of the best pop punk albums of all time. Railing against the tired tropes of what elder generations claimed the "millennial" generation looked like - participation trophies, safe spaces, and misguided beliefs that empathy made you weak/infantile, The Greatest Generation, was written with the idea that only we could shape our narrative, define our success and failure, and set our own expectations. Those expectations were shattered as the release of the album crashed websites, blew out all vinyl stock, and broke records. The band was featured on a number of magazine covers, including Alternative Press, and sold out a world tour that hit territories they had only seen in books. Headlining Warped Tour in 2013, and playing four cross country shows in 24 hours, the band cemented their place in the pop punk pantheon as the hardest working band in the scene. 10 years after the original release, The Greatest Generation, is unequivocally awarded one of the 50 greatest pop punk albums in history (according to Rolling Stone) and is known as the bands' seminal release that has stood the test of time. Celebrating the anniversary with a US/UK anniversary tour, the band is also releasing brand new variants of the classic album, and introducing generations of new fans to The Greatest Generation.
