The grassroots, back-to-basics authenticity of THE STORY SO FAR is a blast of renewing fresh air over the most stale corners of the underground music community. The fact that it's resonated with so many kids around the world is testament to just how starved the scene had become.

Like their single-focused predecessors in legendary pop-punk bands Blink-182, Green Day, or The Descendents, the five guys in The Story So Far got together with no loftier an ambition than to make the music they wanted to hear. Along the way, they just happened to help usher in a pop-punk revival. It's a "return of the real" that's made a sea change across the underground.
In just a few short years, a handful of EPs and three full-length albums, The Story So Far's refreshing, energetic and impressively honest take on hardcore-infused pop-punk music propelled them to the cover of the 2013 Alternative Press 100 Bands You Need To Know issue, to the enduring subcultural benchmark the Vans Warped Tour, and into the hearts and minds of listeners.

Catchy vocal gymnastics and supercharged riffs are delivered with no less precision than the most accomplished of rock acts but disguised by an instantly memorable simplicity that drives the hooks home. The band's sophomore album, What You Don't See (2013), delivered on the undeniable promise of Under Soil and Dirt (2011) and cracked the Billboard Top 50 at the same time. The band returned to close collaborator and comrade Sam Pura (Basement, State Champs) for their self-titled third sent, a no-bullshit, wistful but forceful adventure in song.
