Less than 12 hours after revealing a lot of news to their fans, The Wonder Years have unveiled the music video for the first single off of their fifth studio album.
Though we were given the album name (No Closer to Heaven), the release date (Sept. 4), the complete track list, and the cover art, the band had decided to keep the name of the first single a secret, but were kind enough to let everyone know it would be released at midnight.
Sadly, some of us were asleep, so it was good to know that the video was already available on the internet when we logged on this morning.
The lead single is titled “Cardinals” and the music video features frontman Dan Campbell carrying drummer Mike Kennedy down a suburban street lined with houses, towards an ambulance. But as they reach it, the ambulance pulls a troll move.
Wonder if it’s a metaphor for something?
Check out the music video for “Cardinals” below.
While the band’s new album doesn’t drop for another couple of months, were pretty sure some new tracks are going to start finding their way onto the band’s set list during the Vans Warped Tour.
It’s just a hunch, now that the cat is out of the bag.
